John Landis on

The Green Slime

Released 1969
Distributor MGM

Perhaps to save on dubbing costs, this tacky Japanese-produced space opera features an entirely non-Asian cast (it certainly wasn’t Occidental). Most of the background players are US military personnel. Opinions on its not-very-slimy jello monsters vary, but one thing everybody agrees on: the funky title song is Outta This World! G-R-E-E-E-E-N-S-L-I-I-I-I-I-M-E!!!!!!!
