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!

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.

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.
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.Read more ›
