      Matt Brunson Film Frenzy The reputation of this American-Japanese co-production has always remained at a low ebb, yet the film provides plenty of entertainment value for those seeking disreputable fun. Rated: 2.5/4 Sep 22, 2021 Full Review Nicholas Bell The Green Slime resists the origins of its makers to adhere to the staunch dullness of the Anglo-Saxon figures in the frame. Rated: 2/5 Aug 31, 2020 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins The title song (along with accompanying score) is incredibly out of place - easily more jarring than the visuals and scripting. Rated: 3/10 Aug 24, 2020 Full Review Steve Biodrowski Cinefantastique Although the steaming pile of electrified goo that is The Green Slime never coalesces into anything resembling a good movie, it nevertheless demands attention for reasons having little to do with the usual "so bad it's good" assessment. Rated: 1/5 Jun 14, 2019 Full Review James O'Ehley Sci-Fi Movie Page A sense of humor is required to appreciate this slice of goofy, cheesy late 'Sixties sci-fi! Feb 22, 2011 Full Review Lucius Gore ESplatter Despite the camp presence of '60s rock, laughable costumes ... and of course incredibly goofy-looking monsters, 'The Green Slime' is a seriously good movie. Rated: 3/4 Dec 12, 2010 Full Review Read all reviews

      Michael V Hard not to love something so ridiculous! Thought it would have been perfect for MST3K, and found out it was their KTMA pilot episode! Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 10/04/23 Full Review Dean W Got it on Blue ray I thought would be just the worst but on watching it was surprised that it isn't that bad On par with late sixties Godzilla entries The creatures are not that silly they are electrical and the fight scenes are not the best but the effects are just about right for the time period an interesting movie if you put your frame of mind to it They bring a benign creature on board it ends up killing crew members and they have to blow up the ship to destroy it Sound a bit like Alien ??? Add hr Giger and you have Alien Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/15/23 Full Review Ronnie F I actual saw this movie at a Drive in with my parents in 1968' at age 9', I hated it as a "Yout" also !! Lol But a Great movie poster !! : D Rated 1 out of 5 stars 12/14/22 Full Review Murty C This is an incredibly bad movie - so bad that it is hilarious! Earth is going to be destroyed in 24 hours by a direct hit from an asteroid - just after someone says that "Nothing exciting ever happens here". The Japanese special effects ("tokusatsu") are quite bad, the worst being the alien monsters with their flapping tentacles. (Surprise, surprise - they look like people in rubber suits.) Add to that a love triangle involving the two male leads and an Italian beauty who happens to be a doctor engaged to one of them. *** Spoiler alert *** Of course, the movie has to end with one of the male leads sacrifice himself to destroy the creatures and save the Earth. The only good part of the movie is the eponymous song. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 08/24/22 Full Review Audience Member If you are a geek for the old sci-fi/monster movies of the '50s & '60s as I am, I think you will pretty thoroughly enjoy this film. I actually just came upon this flick on tv 1 night & found myself thoroughly enjoying it. It has a pretty engaging premise for what it is. This film could actually make for a pretty good modern remake.👍 Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review dave s Considering the technology available when The Green Slime was made and what was presumably a tight budget, the special effects in the movie are actually pretty decent. The compliments stop there, however. This is an epically bad movie. Ignoring the numerous errors in basic science, the film fails at virtually every level. The dialogue is stiff, the performances are wooden, the monsters are absurdly silly looking, the shots are horribly composed and usually cluttered with unnecessary extras who just stand around looking over the shoulders of the leads, the psychedelic music over the credits is totally out of place, entire scenes could be cut without worsening an already bad product…need I go on? No. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews
