Product Description

Product Description

Are you eating it ...or is it eating you?

The Stuff is the new desert taking supermarket shelves by storm. It s delicious, low in calories and better still doesn t stain the family carpet... What s not to like?! Well, for a start it has a life of its own, and we re not talking friendly live bacteria...

Young Jason seems to be the only one who doesn t love The Stuff in fact he won t go anywhere near it, after having seen the pudding crawling around the fridge one night. What s more, everyone who eats The Stuff has started acting really weird... Now, teaming up with wise-cracking industrial saboteur Mo , Jason must put a stop to The Stuff and the organisation behind it or face a gooey, gloopy demise.

Coming courtesy of horror auteur Larry Cohen (director of the It s Alive series and scribe behind the Maniac Cop trilogy), The Stuff is a titillating treat for the taste-buds which blends elements of films such as Street Trash with the straight-up B-movie flavour of The Blob. So grab a spoon and dig on into The Stuff the taste that delivers... much more than you bargained for!

Special Features:

  • New high definition digital transfer
  • Newly commissioned artwork
  • Collector s booklet
  • More to be announced!

The stuff is an alien substance of sorts, found bubbling out of the ground in small towns across the United States. It looks like ice-cream, tastes great and, once it takes hold of you it becomes addictive and deadly. But what is its secret ingredient?

Enter Michael Moriarty (A Return to Salem's Lot), who is hired as an industrial saboteur by representatives of a food company to find out just what makes the stuff so addictive. As the stuff becomes more readily available, the people selling it are no longer content to merchandise it through through the smaller outlets. They begin to advertise it nationwide.

David 'Mo' Rutherford (Moriarty)tracks the stuff across country, with Nicole (Andrea Marcovicci) and a young boy, Jason (Scott Bloom), witnessing its effects on the population. During their efforts they are assisted by Col. Malcolm Grommett Spears (Paul Sorvino) and the wacky cookie entrepreneur, Chocolate Chip Charlie (Garrett Morris, Saturday Night Live). As the film progresses, it becomes impossible to know just who to trust, and resisting the stuff becomes increasingly difficult. The more you consume, the harder it becomes to resist.

Larry Cohen has become a hero to those whose intersts are in cult horror/sci-fi films, having turned out classics like 'A Return to Salem's Lot', 'The Ambulance', and 'Q: The Winged Serpent'. This is his fourth collaboration with actor Michael Moriarty, and it is well worth the money. 'The Stuff' contains comedy, action, science fiction, and horror - a combination of 'The Blob' and 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers', with Cohen's crazy sense of humour thrown in for good measure.

Bonus features on this edition include an informative audio commentary with director, Larry Cohen, TV spots, theatrical trailer, and widescreen presentation.

in 1985 was the year of horror comical scares like
tom hollands vampire masterpiece fright night with
chris sarandon and william ragsdale that landmarked
film history with its groundbreaking fx also in that year
comes larry cohens consumer shocker comedy that followed
the examples of george romero's dawn of the dead where
a band of survivors had to battle zombie hoards and consumer greed
in an abandon shopping centre but this film about consumer greed
in the form of a frozen dessert show that what can happen if a product
that people see on tv like in the real world of consumer products that
draws them in to buying them just like a tube of pringles once you pop
you don't stop and this great classic excelled in we devour the product
and the product devours us back this film is like dawn of the dead if we
are not careful consumer products has a habbit of bitting back and a lesson
learned to us all.

Another brilliant release from Arrow.

The Blu-ray transfer is very good nice, so well worth the upgrade 5/5 from me.

You get two discs, and a nice booklet with information about the film.

Plus you have a nice revisable sleeve which looks great.

The aspect ratio is in 1.85:1, Audio 1.0 Mono.

Subtitles English SDH.

Everybody is going mad for 'The Stuff', the nations' favourite taste. Discovered bubbling out of the ground by a miner, it soon becomes a hugely popular dessert, hogging supermarket shelves and earning itself a chain of eateries. The Ice Cream lobby, afraid of the popularity of this new product, hire industrial spy, and one time F.B.I Agent David 'Mo' Rutherford to investigate and discredit the popular pud. Things take a sinister turn however when Mo discovers that their is a web of secrecy surrounding the ingredients and the production of The Stuff, and soon he realises there are those who would wish to silence him. Meanwhile, very strange things start to happen to those who over indulge in the irresistable goo.
If you can get over the fact that the menacing 'creature' in the film resembles a lake of Ice Cream, then you should find this hilarious film to be great fun. It's a sort of cross between Invasion Of The Body Snatchers and a sharp satire on consumerism and fast food. The factory scenes are very reminiscant of the superb BBC/Hammer adaptation of Quatermass II.
The fact is, although it does borrow liberally from the past, it has a style all of its own. It may be a mixing of genres but above all it's a comedy. A very funny one at that. One major reason for the films' success is another great performance from Cohen regular Michael Moriarty. He plays Mo with a southern drawl and a goofy, slightly volatile temperament. Paul Sorvino also deserves a mention, as he's quite brilliant as militia man Colonel Spears.
Whilst it might not be the cast iron classic that Cohen's other features such as 'Q- The Winged Serpent' and 'God Told Me To' are, but for me it's probably the most enjoyable of all Cohen's films.

I remember watching the stuff when i was a teenager many yrs ago when it came out on video and loving it. I usually like this sort of film still to this day so re-watched it the other day. Watching it now it's horribly dated and frankly quite camp too. The stuff was never scary but there's many ridiculous scenes in the movie you'll laugh at ! Both Michael moriarty and especially paul sorvino are very good actors but both realise the script here is complete rubbish and camp/ham up there performances something rotten ! This sin't good enough to be remembered as a classic and isn't quite bad enough to be remembered too so i can't really see the stuff latching onto a new generation in 2010. that said its dirt cheap so you might wanna check it out.
