Trivia

The green slime creatures were played by Japanese children in bulky monster suits. See more »

Goofs

Although the asteroid Flora appears not to have an atmosphere, both billowing rocket smoke and liquid water are present, indicating air pressure. However, smoke shouldn't billow as shown in the movie when the rockets are used in the airless vacuum space. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Hans Halvorsen: But it proves out: this creature lives on energy, and discharges energy! That would explain its ability to electrocute Michaels! One cell, one microscopic speck left on a space suit, and it would absorb all the energy it could find.
Commander Jack Rankin: Wait a minute -- are you telling me that this thing "reproduced" itself inside the decontamination chamber? And, as we stepped up the current, it just... it just GREW?
Dr. Hans Halvorsen: Precisely! And they could be reproducing on any part of this station, where even a drop of this ...

What fun!
28 November 2001 | by (Luling, TX) – See all my reviews

If you've read the other reviews of this movie, then you already know most of the storyline. What "The Green Slime" really is is lots of fun. Groovy '60's mod clothes, Japanese monsters and miniature sets, way out dance celebration scene, all great stuff. And if you pay enough attention to the big picture, you can't help but think that this influenced "Alien"; people trapped in space, with killer creatures that can't easily be killed. It's just that "Alien" had a better budget and better writers.

I was lucky enough to see this on the big screen, being as that there is only one print in the US. But it would be fun to rent it some rainy weekend afternoon, with plenty of popcorn and the kids.
