Slime City is the story of Alex, an art student just trying to get some. He rents an apartment from a seemingly sweet old Lizzie to try to sway his girlfriend Lori into 'sleeping' over. Roman and Nicole, the building's other two youth residents take more than a healthy interest in our boy. Nicole practically says 'Come up and plow me sometime' and Roman has him over for green pudding and haunted Crème de Methe. Roman explains the goo is Himalayan yogurt made by Lizzie and the wine is made by her dead alchemist father Zachary. Staggering back to his apartment, Alex runs into Nicole. Then they take off their pants and run into each other a few more times. Alex wakes up the next morning covered in slime or possibly melting. He decides to go out for tea and murders a hobo. Before the hobo's blood is dry, Alex is back to normal. Roman brings by some more goo and Alex hoovers it up. Afterwards, he meets Lori's parents and ruins dinner with the revelation that he no longer wants to move in ... Written by badhorrorgoodtimes

Appluad the effort, but a dud none the less
16 April 2008 | by movieman_kevSee all my reviews

Writer/director/producer Greg Lamberson's first stab creating his own low-budget horror film comes across as a cross between "Street Trash" and "the Stuff" while being not quite as entertaining as either of the two aforementioned movies. This movie about a guy who moves into an apartment where he slowly gets murderous after a dinner of rather potent 'wine' and 'yogurt' starts off extremely slow and will leave you searching for the remote, but about a half hour in it gets slightly interesting. I applaud what Greg accomplished with the budget that he had, but sadly I still see this movie as a misfire.

My Grade: D+

Region 1 DVD Extras: Commentary with Director Gregory Lamberson; Making Slime featurette; Bonus film? "Naked Fear" with optional commentary; a promo for Shockarama Cinema; theatrical trailer; and Trailers for "satan's Black Wedding", "Criminally Insane", & "Women's Prison Massacre"
