Mike: It's Alien meets Ghostbusters.
Ghostbusters is a 1984 sci-fi/comedy about three New York City parapsychologists-turned-ghost exterminators played by Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis. The ghosts develop a kind of slime called ectoplasm that allows them to materialize and move objects.
Alien is a 1979 sci-fi film starring Sigourney Weaver who encounters an aggressive extraterrestrial life-form. Apparently aliens also develop a really nasty slime.
Mike: You're like Indiana Jones except for the bugs and the concussions.
