Out-there. Pointed. Over-the-top.
It’s the new sensation. “The Stuff” in marquee letters. But what is “the Stuff?” Some sort of white yogurt substance being advertised like it’s ice cream, but being sold and consumed like a legal form of crack. Industrial saboteur Mo Rutherford (Moriarty) is hired to investigate and destroy the new hot seller, but what he finds is darker than he ever imagined. The Stuff is actually a living organism that slowly takes over the brain of whoever eats it. Okay, so obviously a super-silly movie, that balances over-the-top satire with cheesy eighties horror tastes. While the film is not scary at all, or particularly well-acted, it is highly entertaining and creative.
