The Green Slime was on the 4 o’clock movie on Saturdays a few times after Creature Double Feature which made for a full 5 hours of parking your butt in front of the tube. It’s been so long since I’ve seen it, though, that my memories are very vague. I’m going to have to squeeze this onto my watch list.

After watching The Green Slime, I can say for sure that I’d never seen the whole thing before. The only scene I remembered was the first glowing red eye shown. I’m sure if I had seen those creatures before I would’ve remembered them.

it was a little less sophisticated than I expected. More Saturday morning. That’s not a bad thing, I had just built up a wrong notion of the movie in my head.

I had to laugh at one scene that was set up to push the love triangle. Rankin just gets back from saving the earth by destroying the meteor carrying the green slime and is getting checked out by Lisa. They get into it a little, having had a past romance, and Lisa says something to the effect of “Your problem is you’re afraid to fail!” He just saved the earth! Thank goodness he didn’t fail! Lol.

The monsters looked pretty good with their flailing tentacles and giant eye but several times I got the feeling that there a bunch of kids in the suits running around. I’m sure they were stuntmen but the chaotic situations sometimes had a Sigmund the Seamonster feel. The sound effects were a bit creepy and the Green Slime theme song was good.

Overall, worth a viewing.
