Earth is about to be hit by a giant asteroid, but the UN sends up macho astronaut Jack (Robert Horton), who takes care of the affair and blows the thing to Kingdom Come - but that's where the trouble start, because not only is the commander of the spacestation that is his next stop, Vince (Richard Jaeckel), his estranged former best friend who is engaged to Lisa (Luciana Paluzzi), the woman Jack is also in love with, Jack also unintentionally brings some green slime to the station, that if fed electricity turns not into one but several one-eyed tentacled green monsters which electrocute everything in their way. The monsters soon take over more and more of the station, and since they feed on energy and light, they cannot be defeated by conventional (laser-)weapons.

Vince tries to handle the situation as best he can, but his approach is entirely too humanitarian, e.g. he tries to capture one of the creatures to study it and later risks the sake of everyone on the station just to save a man doomed to die. All this pussy-footing eventually leads macho Jack to relieve Vince of his command and order the evacuation and destruction of the whole station ... but of course, the station can be blown up only by hand, so hero that he is, Jack stays behind to trigger the explosion, but Vince, ultimately overcome by heroism, steps in at the very last moment, giving his life for Jack's, who in turn will be free to take care of Lisa ...

 

Pointless but fun Japanese-American drive in flick with some wonderful rubber monsters and endearing (though not entirely convincing) miniature effects. Sure the film is anything but a milestone, and the Japanese involvement in this can be felt at best fleetingly, but it's enjoyable pulp sci fi that trash fans like myself have no problems loving anyways.
