The Stuff Dual Format Short Review

1 star of laugh out loud fun for this cult horror classic.The Stuff cover
It feels harsh only giving one star here, but given the sheer number of good films out there and the fact that even though this is very entertaining, it really is quite rubbish, it seems only fair.
The Stuff was originally released in 1985, written and directed by Larry Cohen (Phone Booth, Cellular) and is quite refreshing in it's approach.
The Stuff mmm TastyIt is reminiscent of Invasion Of The Body Snatchers, only with Dream Topping (other whipped cream substitutes are available) instead of aliens.
When a security guard discovers a strange goop emanating from the ground, he does what any self respecting idiot would do and tastes it. Imagine his surprise (and mine) when it turns out to be not only delicious, sweet and tasty, but also low in calories and very moreish. The ideal product for the marketing people, i.e. Nicole (Andrea Marcovicci - The Hand, The Front).
