The Green Slime on DVD

Sunday afternoons meant two things for me growing up. The first was a big meal. We usually ate a large meal, early on Sunday evenings. The second was that if I didn’t want to get off the couch, I could watch non-stop imported Sci-Fi movies from Japan on one station or another. I have slowly, but surely been reclaiming these pieces of my youth (and building a nice movie library). My newest addition is the made-in-Japan, masterpiece, The Green Slime. This is a film, I thought no one in the world knew or cared about, but judging from what I have been reading online, a lot of other folks think this film is hilarious.

Green Slime

Pretty classy cover right? Well check out this description and short clip to see what you have been missing…

After a perilous mission to a huge asteroid, a crew returns to its space station, unaware a bit of ooze from the asteroid clings to a crewman’s uniform. The green goop grows – into murderous, tentacled monsters. And as station members fight to live, gunk from the monsters’ wounds turns into more monsters! That’s the story.

If you want to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon smiling or are having a movie riffing party, make sure to add The Green Slime to your list.

    Usually revisiting the campy favorites of my youth is a real hoot, but I watched this recently and hard a hard time getting through it. I think there just were not enough giggle-worthy bits in the bulk of the movie. The only think that kept me going was that I knew there was more of that awesome theme song on the end credits.
