Argh! I was going to put together a music video of this movie with its _incredible_ theme song, but I'm just so lazy.
This movie is incredible. It's an attempt by Toei (the company that made Kamen Rider and Super Sentai, which became Power Rangers) to branch out into the US / Europe (or something), and you can tell. It's basically western actors acting like western actors but existing in a Power Rangers universe battling Power Rangers monsters.
Plus, that theme song.
Oh, also, this is the same director as the Yakuza Papers and Battle Royale (!!!)
I nominate a "Bill Finger" tag
Great flick, amazing theme song.
Also: This was the first joint venture between an American and Japanese movie company after the war
Not it isn't. What about Universal allowing Toho to use King Kong for King Kong vs Godzilla in 1962? Or how Henry G Saperstein worked with Toho starting in 1965 to ensure that the company could get American leads for some of their sci-fi films like Invasion of Astro Monster and War of the Gargantua in order to make said movies more internationally marketable? Green Slime is hardly the first American-Japanese coventure.

This used to come on two or three times a year back when local stations would show old movies to fill their Saturday night and Sunday afternoon lineups. It was one of my favorites as a kid.
YES! Every so often, my brother and I would get to stay up as late as we wanted. We would usually watch USA Up All Night, and this was on it. NOSTALGIA!
Open the door and find the secret
To find the answer is to keep it
You'll believe it when you find
Something screaming 'cross your mind!
What can it be? What is the reason?
Is this the end to all that we've done?
Is it just something in your head?
Will you believe it when you're dead?
Man has looked out to space in wonder
For thousands of years
Sometimes thinking that life could be somewhere
And now, now it's here!
