Storyline

A giant asteroid is heading toward Earth so some astronauts disembark from a nearby space station to blow it up. The mission is successful, and they return to the station unknowingly bringing back a gooey green substance that mutates into one-eyed tentacled monsters that feed off electricity. Soon the station is crawling with them, and people are being zapped left and right! Written by Humberto Amador

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 ...

Campy Fun!
6 October 2003 | by (West Virginia) – See all my reviews

Robert Horton was on the downslide and poor Richard Jaeckel was stuck in one more film unworthy of his talents. Luciana Paluzzi....well, with neither talent nor anywhere to slide, I guess she belongs in this movie.

It's bright, loud and brassy and everything in the space station screams of the 1960's, including the theme song which has to be the most unusual ever tacked on to a sci-fi film. The color process they used (is it Technicolor?) is so unreal that the whole thing reminds me of a comic book. Watch "Danger,Diabolik" and you'll get that same feeling. Bile greens and mucous yellows.....ugh.

The story line is not much but the special effects, frankly, may be better than some of that period. This was made before fx came into their own, so be a little forgiving. The monsters are not very well conceived and they are soooo slow moving.

Just watch this one for the fun of it and try to forget how embarrassed the actors must have been mouthing those lines, wearing those outfits and running around in cardboard sets while being pursued (very slowly) by a bunch of green Jello. What a hoot!!
