"The Slime People has always been one of those favorites of mine. I was excited to be able to get it on DVD format. Unfortunately, the transfer of the original to DVD has been done so badly, that the film is nearly unwatchable. And the sound is warbly to say the least. Perhaps they simply had a bad original to work with. It is still fun to watch though....just not very well preserved.Creature was transferred with about the same disregard for getting a decent quality of picture recorded on the DVD format. It's a shame that two fun movies were recorded this badly. I'd recommend this DVD for anyone who likes old flicks, The Slime People is one of the classics of low-budget B&W California sci-fi. Just don't expect to see high quality video or hear decent sound because the thing was recorded very badly."
There's only one good movie on this disc

"And that's William Malone's Creature, starring Klaus Kinski. That one's pretty cheesey too. The other movie is this 1950s Sci-Fi called The Slime People, and if you ask me, it's quite the borefest. I just got through watching that.
The disc itself is not gonna get any awards either. Both look like they've been sourced from old VHS tapes. Also, when you watch Creature, during the end credits, the disc just simply freezes.
UPDATE: I ended up getting the Diamond Entertainment DVD in June and I ended up trading this DVD here off a few weeks ago."
Pre-Alien film is very original and has some good scares.

"I enjoyed this movie, which is about a trio a aliens that terrorize a small backwoods town. It has a few good scares and came out before Alien, so it can't be billed as a ripoff."
