Editorial Reviews

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. Now enjoy as our heroes fight to preserve Earth and, unintentionally, our own senses of humor with a movie that Kevin Thomas of the Los Angeles Times called "one of the funniest made-in-Japan sci-fi monster movies ever." Kinji Fukasaku, whose later work was championed by Quentin Tarantino, directs. The world would be a far more bleak and joyless place without marvels like The Green Slime.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

I ordered this directly through the Warner Archive site
and received it a few days ago. (Pricey!) Anyway, I'm glad
to finally have this among my Japanese monster collection.
This film creeped me out as a kid when I first saw it in
theaters, mainly because the creatures were just too weird.
It's goofy, cheesy, and a lot of fun - with a plot that
predates 'Armageddon' as astronauts attempt to blow up
an asteroid on a collision course with Earth. They do so,
but end up contaminating their space station Gamma III
(an extremely low-budget plastic toy obviously inspired
by '2001', which was still popular at the time) with the
titular crud that spawns the space monsters. I wouldn't
be surprised if this, in some goofy way, also influenced
'Aliens'. The film was made in conjunction with Japan's
Toei studio and directed by their ace 'yakuza' director
Kinji Fukusaku, who recently found renewed fame with his
'Battle Royale' series of films. The quality of this disc
is miles ahead of its vhs counterpart (the only other one
in existence) and is widescreen - though there's no extras
and no chapter stops. I believe that's typical for Warner
Archive editions. You may want to wait for the price to
drop however.

5.0 out of 5 stars A movie too funny to be an accident! December 11, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
There isn't a single Japanese actor in this big-budget Japanese produced sci-fi drama, but the special effects are a dead give-away. A wandering astroid (code named `Flora') is on a collision course with Earth. Richard Jackel and Robert Horton lead a team which places atomic bombs on the astroid to blow it up. They succeed, but they unwittingly bring back an alien fungus to their wheel-shaped space station.
The fungus grows into man-sized monsters which multiply rapidly and overrun the space station. Jackel and Horton are forced to set aside their romantic rivalry over Luciana Paluzzi (`Thunderball') while they battle the creatures. Blazing laser guns abound in a desperate battle with the unstoppable monsters! The astronauts even don spacesuits and jet-packs for a battle on the space station's hull. All this in glorious color AND wide screen. Wow!
Sure, this sounds great but . . . well, these guys didn't know what they were doing.
. . . Or did they?
`The Green Slime' looks more like a clever satire of sci-fi movies than an ineptly made film. The odds against all the side-splitting humor in this movie happening by accident must be astronomical. The potato-shaped monster suits are hysterical. The miniatures of the rockets are so tiny the camera can barely focus on them. The dialogue sounds like perfect parodies of sci-fi's most treasured clichés. (Example: The doctor rushes up to soldiers as their about to attack a slim monster. `Stop, don't kill it!' he pleads. `This is a magnificent discovery, and we must do everything possible to SAVE it!' -- and he says it in a perfect imitation of Richard Nixon.)
When the heroes' rocket tries to outrun an atomic blast, Robert Horton orders the pilot to increase thrust.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best movie I ever appeared in. September 4, 2002
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
Richard Jaeckel was great.. courteous to the extras, acted well. Better production values than "King Kong Escapes" One of the better Japanese science fiction movies.
Little known fact.. the actor playing the monster in the green slime also played Godzilla in the 1960's Godzilla movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Got Slimed Last Night February 18, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The folks at Warner Archive need to be thanked for the wonderful job they have done in finally releasing this classic on DVD! The color and sound are great and the widescreen presentation is even better than I had hoped for. Goodbye VHS! The acting in this film ranges from awful to non-existent, the special effects budget was probably about $2.95 and that theme song....! But this one's a favorite. I loved it when I was a kid and I love it even more now. But please don't remake it. I don't think anyone in film today could do it justice. This is classic 1960's "B" sci-fi. Let's just keep on enjoying it as it is. Five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's about time !! November 7, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
All I can say is "It's about time" for The Green Slime !!
Having grown up on this cheesy little slice of Jap/American filmaking I'm so happy I can put my crappy VHS away and finally see it on DVD. This movie has everything that a B movie lover could want !! Over the top acting ... cheesy monsters and one of the greatest instumentals songs of all time !! (Where Jack and Lisa are dancing and arguing over Vince. I can still play it on my synthesizer)Heck you can't even forget about the theme song that will having you swinging and singing till the dawn. lol
If you love the B-movies from the late 60's then this is honestly a movie for you. Imagine it... late Friday night ... home alone or with that special someone ... you just popped some corn and then you put your copy of "The Green Slime" in the DVD player.
It don't get much better than this folks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clean Slime November 9, 2002
By Gary L.
Format:VHS Tape
My kids and I love this chessy flick. The groovy opening song, the plastic monsters, the plywood sliding doors, the miniture space cars moving along obvious "hidden" wires, the above average plot. We get a real hoot from the "thumbs up" exchanges between Robert Horton and whoever else is willing to give him a thumb in return. The dance party is a real gas. How did the women ever sit down modestly in those mini-skirts? We all like Richard Jaeckel because he looks so much like my son John. A parent needn't worry about what is said or done on screen. Great fun if you don't expect a big production.
