Green Slime, The (1968)

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 . . .

Kevin Thomas of the Los Angeles Times called The Green Slime “one of the funniest made-in-Japan sci-fi monster movies ever.”

Kinji Fukasaku, whose later work was championed by Quentin Tarantino, directs.
