    What I remember from seeing this on HBO when I was a kid is that it's kind of an Alien spoof. A ship full of people lands on a planet to check it out for one reason or another. One of the guys says "Ifound some jelly." and shows everyone a little pink blob on the end of his finger. When taken on board the ship, the blob grows into a monster which proceeds to eat its way through the crew. I'm pretty sure I remember it singing a song like "I want to eat your face, I want to eat your..." which is why I say it was a comedy. I can't for the life of me remember the title and it has been ages since I saw it. Can anyone help?!?

    Did it have Leslie Neilsen... ? I'm thinking The Creature Wasn't Nice or something like that.

    I believe the director of this film frequents the Home Theater Forum.

    Thank you!

    Looks like it was originally called "Spaceship" and then after the "Naked Gun" films it was renamed "Naked Space" since it features Leslie Nielsen.

    You guys are great! I've been meaning to post this question for a month or two and now I get an answer in about 20 minutes. Thanks again!

    Bruce Kimmel was the director, and that name does seem familiar around here.

    Make that "8 minutes". [​IMG]


    And it's on DVD even, under its Naked Space name, although no longer widely available.


    Here's a pic:

    I saw it on VHS as Spaceship, circa 1985 and again last year as Naked Space on DVD.

    It's not....great. [​IMG]
