Design of the Week--Green Slime!

Each week, we post a limited-edition design, to be sold for exactly 7 days, then replaced with another!
This week...
It's the kool poster art for one of the weirdest, wildest sci-fi films of the psychedelic '60s.
The Green Slime
was an Italian-Japanese-American co-production about alien spores who attach themselves to a space station, grow to five feet tall, start ingesting the human crew with the intention to do the same to the population of Earth!
It's fast-paced, has pretty good sfx (on a par with the Godzilla and Gamera flicks of the period), and the multi-national cast features some solid actors including Robert Horton, Richard Jaeckel, and Luciana Paluzzi.
The writers of this amazing opus included Bill Finger, co-creator (with Bob Kane) of The Batman, and Ivan Reiner, screenwriter of Wild, Wild Planet and other Italian genre films!
The funkiest part, though, is the now-legendary theme song written by Charles Fox, who previously had done the music for Barbarella!
It's NOT on American (Region 1) DVD, though Japanese imports are available.
There is an OOP pan and scan VHS, but it's a little pricey!

We thought the poster would fit in perfectly as a Halloween-oriented t-shirt, mug or other collectible gift for you or your pop-culture-oriented loved one!
Get it...before the Green Slime gets YOU!

FREE Bonus: Link to a downloadble mp3 of the way-out Green Slime theme song!
