Will you believe it when you’re dead?? THE GREEN SLIME creeps to Blu-ray this October from Warner Archive

When I first started ExB way back in 2013, our first recurring feature was a dumb little thing called “99 Reasons for The Green Slime on Blu-ray”. That feature, which came with a petition for… guess…, only ever got through the first two reasons, and is now long dead. Luckily for us, the other 97 reasons appear to have been wholly unnecessary.

On October 10th director Kinji FUKASAKU’s pulp epic of man vs. monsters aboard a deteriorating space station slithers onto hi-def home video courtesy of a Blu-ray edition from the ever-dependable Warner Archive. The oddball Japanese / American co-production will reach disc in a new HD scan at the original ‘Scope aspect ratio, with the original theatrical trailer (also HD) in support. If the Archive’s recent efforts are any indication (the gorgeous remaster of World Without End comes to mind) then this should be a very nice disc indeed.

The Green Slime remains a pre-eminent guilty pleasure in these parts, and we can hardly wait to see the new edition. Warner Archive’s The Green Slime Blu-ray is already up for order through WBShop ($21.99), and should be available through other retailers soon (Amazon’s page is also live, but not yet accepting orders as of this post).
