The Green Slime is one of those deliciously campy 60’s science-fiction films in which spacemen hurtle around on wires, blasting rubbery aliens with ray guns. It’s a throwback to the days of less ponderous sci-fi, before 2001 set the tone for the genre in cinema. And it also happens to have one of the catchiest and most psychedelic theme songs in the history of cinematic sci-fi.
The plot of the film is simple: Cycloptic mutants from outerspace with the ability to discharge electrical bolts from their flailing tentacles terrorize the manly astronauts and semi-clad Italian bombshells aboard the space station Gamma 3 as an asteroid hurtles towards the Earth! Featuring a star-studded cast including Robert Horton, Richard Jaeckel and Luciana Paluzzi as Bubbles Bazonga, fearless female space scientist.
The production was a joint Japanese and American production. The director of this film went on to make Battle Royale and Tora! Tora! Tora! No fooling.
Watch and enjoy. There’s no way this song won’t be bouncing around in your head for the rest of the day.
