The Green Slime (1968)
Director: Kinji Fukasaku
Main Stars: Robert Horton, Luciana Paluzzi, Richard Jaeckel
Storyline: A giant asteroid is heading for Earth so they use a nearby space station to help blow it up but during the process some green slime gets tracked into the station.
Review (Spoils): Get ready for a unique storyline; there is an orange asteroid that is heading towards the Earth. We must destroy it before it destroys us. We have two hunky astronauts who are battling for the sexy space station nurse (Luciana Paluzzi,) and leadership of the mission. The mission becomes a success but they dragged some green slime into the space station which then grows into Dungeon and Dragons like red eyed ropers that feed off of electricity. Oh and when they bleed green slime they populate….. Ok.
That pretty much narrows up this cheesy space flick. We have some bad acting, some craziness when it comes to special effects, rubber monsters and of course the barely clad sexy space nurse Lisa. This film is not scary by any means and actually laughable and unwatchable.
Rating: If it was not the low special effects (like the yellow lasers, the fight scene involving hospital beds and a power rolls of action) this film would have totally bombed. The storyline and dialogue was horrible. I will give it a beer also for the sexy space nurse. Pass on this one……………..
