The Stuff (1985)

Written and directed by Larry Cohen, The Stuff mixes satire, horror and science fiction to deliver somewhat of a throwback movie that does not disappoint. it stars Michael Moriarty, Andrea Marcovicci, Garrett Morris, and Paul Sorvino.

It begins with a number of railroad workers discovering a strange white substance bubbling out of the ground. As you do when you discover a strange substance – you give it a taste! It turns out this “stuff” is sweet and addictive.

Later, the substance is marketed as “The Stuff” and sold to the general public in containers like ice cream. It is marketed as having no calories and as being sweet, creamy, and filling. The Stuff quickly becomes a nationwide craze and drastically hurts the sales of ice cream.

The success of The Stuff lead its competitors to hire Former FBI agent turned industrial saboteur David “Mo” Rutherford (Moriarty) to find out exactly what The Stuff is and destroy it. From his research he discovers The Stuff is actually a living, parasitic (and sentient?) organism that slowly doesa number of things to you. Firstly it takes over the brain; then it then mutates you into a bizarre zombie-like creature; finally it consumes you from the inside and leaves you an empty shell!

Can it be stopped?
