    Synopsis


    The Stuff
    When a group of miners discovers a mysterious but delicious white substance bubbling up from the earth, a conglomerate markets the gooey, addictive fluff as a dessert in this tongue-in-cheek horror spoof from former NBC scriptwriter Larry Cohen. When a new product called "The Stuff" begins eating into the market share of traditional frozen desserts, the dairy industry hires former FBI agent Moe Rutherford (Michael Moriarty) to investigate the competition. With the assistance of deposed ice-cream magnate Chocolate Chip Charlie (Garrett Morris), Rutherford discovers that the substance is actually a sentient entity that takes over its victims' minds while eating away at their bodies from the inside. Meanwhile, young Jason (Scott Bloom) realizes that his family's strange behavior has something to do with the dessert product in their refrigerator that refuses to stay in its carton, and he launches a campaign to destroy the threatening confection. Soon Rutherford and Jason must team up with Nicole Kendall (Andrea Marcovicci), The Stuff's unwitting advertising mastermind, and Vietnam vet-turned-militia leader Colonel Spears (Paul Sorvino) to save America from its own sweet tooth. Sorvino and Moriarty would go on to co-star in NBC's hit police procedural, Law & Order. Icy-eyed As the World Turns hunk Brian Bloom appears alongside his brother, Scott Bloom. The Stuff's television connections also extend to cameos from Clara Peller, pitchwoman for the Wendy's "Where's the beef?" campaign, and Abe Vigoda of Barney Miller fame. Actresses Brooke Adams, Tammy Grimes, and Laurene Landon also appear in parodic commercials for the titular dessert. ~ Brian J. Dillard, Rovi

      I'm an actual best buy elite member. I bought this Blu Ray because I am a fan of 80's horror films. The Stuff is published by ARROW and there are a TON Of extras included on the Blu Ray. First let me say that the blu ray transfer is incredible. Arrow took the time and scanned the film to filter out the grainy quality that is so common in other Blu ray movies from the 80's since they were not initially filmed in HD. The movie quality again is fantastic. The extras are always nice. Arrow is like the Criterion of Horror films. The Film is an either love it or hate it film. ITs a satire on Consumerism with some horror elements. Regardless I personally love 80's horror movies so I like this film.

      I remember renting this when i was a kid and loving it. I bought it and it was horrible. The main character is so annoying. According to the director hes an actor that marches to the beat of his own drum and it shows. He is unwatchable. If not for him the movie would be another fun 80's horror flick.

      This has been one of my favorite movies since I was a kid. It is an interesting twist on zombies. It is not very gory as one would expect from the cover. And who could not like a movie with guys names Mo' and Chocolate Chip Charlie?

      From the depths of the 80's comes a great classic schlock film about killer alien like yogurt! Always saw the box at the old videos stores in my area but was hesitant because it looked gross.
