“Incredibly fun and entertaining … packed with over the top acting, crazy effects and even a little bit of social commentary.” – Scared Stiff Reviews

“Are you eating it …or is it eating you?”   A new tasty treat is sweeping the nation – it’s “The Stuff,” and it’s delicious, nutritious and oh yeah, absolutely deadly!   In cult director Larry Cohen’s crazed consumer horror flick, a strain of monstrous frozen yogurt is turning shoppers into rampaging zombies who will do absolutely anything to get more of The Stuff into their bellies.  Let’s hope they all have coupons!   The concept of a parasitic, possibly sentient dessert product bubbling up from a mysterious underground source, being packaged and distributed to unsuspecting consumers, and then running amuck in a bid to take over the world, is clearly the building block for an absolutely kick ass B-movie that begs to be watched while stuffing your face with a handful of nutrition-free sweet treats.    And when you throw in a paranoid conspiracy involving the FDA, big business and the military industrial complex, you’ve got yourself a wacky horror thriller that even Michael Moore could love.  Definitely one of the weirdest exploitation movies of the ‘80s, with a surprisingly stellar cast including Michael Moriarty (Q: The Winged Serpent), Paul Sorvino (Goodfellas) and Garret Morris (Saturday Night Live), hilarious fake commercials for The Stuff (starring Abe Vigoda and Clara “Where’s the Beef?” Peller), crazed horror effects involving mounds of living yogurt bursting from people’s faces, and typically strange direction from B-movie maestro Larry Cohen (It’s Alive), The Stuff really satisfies! (Dir. by Larry Cohen, 1985, USA, 87 mins., Rated R)
