Review: The Stuff Blu-ray

15 March 2014 4:25 AM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

Larry Cohen’s 1985 film The Stuff my not be a classic, or even a horror classic come to that. But it is one of the best schlock horror releases that stands the test of time. I first came across this film after watching a few Troma films with my friends in my teens. While I loved the chaos and comedy of Lloyd Kaufman’s films they never really made much of an impression.

So when I saw a trailer for The Stuff I was prepared for much of the same. At the time I wasn’t aware of Larry Cohen’s body of work, though I’d watched Q the Winged Serpent without any knowledge of its filmmakers. Stuff takes its DNA from Q. A homage to the 1950s B-Movies. A real drive-in horror.

But underneath the ice cream and over the top special effects is a solid message. Okay »

Blu-ray Review - The Stuff (1985)

11 March 2014 2:10 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Stuff, 1985

Directed by Larry Cohen

Starring Michael Moriarty, Andrea Marcovicci, Garrett Morris, Paul Sorvino, Scott Bloom

Synopsis:

A delicious mysterious goo that oozes from the Earth is marketed as the newest dessert sensation. But the sugary treat rots more than teeth when zombie-like snackers begin infesting the world.

Certainly a cult favourite among 80s horror fans, The Stuff is unashamedly campy and it never takes itself too seriously. If you read deeper between the lines it could be seen as an allegory for Us product consumption, but at the end of the day it's a movie about a marshmallow alien that takes over people who eat it.

The Stuff is a wonderfully cheesy affair about an alien lifeform that is discovered by a group of miners and through pure idiocy, they find that it tastes amazing. It quickly becomes the hot new product known as The Stuff and starts »

The Stuff Blu-Ray Review

10 March 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Larry Cohen

Starring: Michael MoriartyAndrea Marcovicci, Paul Sorvino, Danny Aiello and Garrett Morris

Running Time: 93 minutes

Certificate: 15

Ben & Jerry have strong competition as a luscious new dessert hits the stores and is taking supermarket shelves by storm. But just what does this mysterious goo, secretly oozing from the Earth, offer those munching on its sugary goodness?

Coming courtesy of cult horror auteur Larry Cohen, the legendary figure schooled in the low-budget Roger Corman form of quick filmmaking, The Stuff is one of those unique creature-features impossible not to like despite it’s cheap cheekiness. Inspired by the 1950s hits like The Blob and featuring an absurd premise taking an obvious pot shot at consumerism, corporate greed and environmental abuse, The Stuff is as intoxicating as its delicious product suggests because of the cast. Particularly Cohen regular Michael Moriarty as the swaggering industrial saboteur David “Mo” Rutherford. He’s »

‘The Stuff’ Blu-ray Review (Arrow Video)

27 February 2014 11:15 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Michael Moriarty, Andrea Marcovicci, Garrett Morris, Paul Sorvino, Scott Bloom, Danny Aiello, Patrick O’Neal, Alexander Scourby | Written and Directed by Larry Cohen

In 1985, New York director Larry Cohen (It’s Alive, Full Moon High) took to the camera to bring us a cult classic called The Stuff, the story of a strange “goo” found coming from the Earth which is packaged up and sold as a delicious desert treat. The only problem is that when the customers of the product eat it they turn into flesh eating zombies.

The story is not dissimilar to another cult favourite of mine, Street Trash (J. Michael Muro, 1987), which dealt with a liquor that turned it’s drinkers to sludge, only in this case the people who, for lack of a less dirty sounding term, swallow the stuff, end up as zombies. It’s a wonderfully silly plot that works wonderfully with the rest of the film. »

9 January 2014 7:52 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Adding John Goodman to any movie is a way to better pique our interest. So a tip of the hat to Paramount, which has added the consummate character actor who recently stole scenes in the Coen Brothers' Inside Llewyn Davis to their growing ensemble for the remake of The Gambler. Based on the 1974 crime drama that starred James Caan, Paul Sorvino and Lauren Hutton, The Gambler is being retooled for modern audiences with a cast that already includes Lone Survivor's Mark Wahlberg, Short Term 12's Brie Larson, American Horror Story's Jessica Lange, Boardwalk Empire's Michael K. Williams, and Travis Tope, who will be seen in Jason Reitman's Men, Women & Children, which is currently in production. The original was based on the true-life traumas of its screenwriter James Toback, centering on a literature professor whose addiction to gambling puts his personal relationships at risk while mixing »
