The Green Slime (1968) DVD Release


Calling all B-movie fans!

DC has news up that one of the greats, The Green Slime, is getting a new restored DVD release. For anyone who has never caught this gem, here's the official summary:

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! That’s the story. Now enjoy as our heroes fight to preserve Earth and, unintentionally, our own senses of humor with a movie that Kevin Thomas of the Los Angeles Times called “one of the funniest made-in-Japan sci-fi monster movies ever.” Kinji Fukasaku, whose later work was championed by Quentin Tarantino, directs. The world would be a far more bleak and joyless place without marvels like The Green Slime.

If you want to get your scaly claws on your very own copy, check out Warner Archives right now and pre-order. Disc retails for $24.95 and will drop on October 24th.
