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.
