Referencing The Green Slime on Valentine’s Day actually makes sense in a warped sort of way, seeing as how there’s a love triangle in the movie.
Man, does that song ever need a CD release. Don’t laugh, it got a vinyl release back in the day.
The film’s Wikipedia entry is a must-read. Not only does it reveal who composed the amazing song showcased above, but it also has some cool trivia. For example, did you know about the film’s loose connection to the “Gamma I Quadrilogy” of Italian space adventures directed by Antonio Margheriti. It’s claimed here that the films were originally commissioned by MGM as a set of made-for-TV movies. Said films consisted of: Wild Wild Planet, War of the Planets, Planet on the Prowl, and The Snow Devils. It should be noted that those films have about a million alternate titles and the ones that seemed to be the most popular were used to create that list.
The Green Slime is also famous for having footage used in the unaired pilot episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000, which finally had a public showing in 2008.
MGM has yet to put out The Green Slime on DVD, but the VHS release (along with some promotional gimmick memories) can be found here.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
