    A rip off of 2001: A Space Odyssey, even the title sequence is dreadful, so cheaply made with a horrible song attached to it, extremely forcefully used high pitch noises ain't helping you to make the movie any scarier. The acting was wooden, the props were badly made, the costumes... possibly the worst aspect of film other than the less than frightening monster. If this was purely made in Japan with only Japanese actors it might have been good, but finding a bunch of Europeans making a Gozilla like film just doesn't work. By the way, the main title is incorrect as there are no slimes, the alternative title: Gamma 3: Operation Outer Space is slightly better.

    I thouroughly enjoyed this late 60's sci-fi romp. While obviously flawed by finiancial restraints, it is still pretty obvious that the filmmakers wanted to make an exciting and entertaining film, and wouldn't let finances hold them back from doing so, for better or worse depending on your aesthitical preferance. The story is pretty generic of the alien genre. A spaceship becomes contaminated with an Alien lifeform, that multiplies rapidly, especially when made to bleed, making it difficult to kill. It is up to the crew to battle this extraterrestrial flow, but first they must get past their own power struggles and ill feelings for each other. Sounds like Alien, and indeed is reminicent of Alien but with a fraction of the budget. I was psyched to see Luciana Paluzzi in the main female role (she was the sexy Redhead from the James Bond flick Thunderball.) Don't get too excited though, this is a PG movie. Has an awesome soundtrack as well. A lot of people on Flixster seem to hold this movies obvious flaws against it a lot harder than I would. Not really sure why anyone would watch this kind of movie expecting it to be anything but what it is. I guess things can be summed up by saying, if you enjoy low budget Sci-Fi of the 60's there is a lot to enjoy here. If you don't then you won't. I had a great time with this, so where I stand on that fence is pretty obvious. Recommended.

    They turned the camera upside down to show the slime moving up a wall. The second worst movie ever made by man, topped only by the absurd <I>Twister</I> with Helen Hunt. Now THAT was a really BAD movie.
