Really Awful Movies: Ep 108 – The Stuff



Larry Cohen territory on this episode. He’s the man behind It’s Alive and also The Stuff.

The Stuff (Michael Moriarty/Paul Sorvino) is about a marshmallow / yogurt-like substance that’s a hit with consumers…however, it turns out: it’s alive!

A consumer satire / creature feature, this is one interesting flick. Everything Cohen does is idea-driven. No nubiles being hacked by machete at a remote campground.

The film features industrial espionage, an industrious kid, and even an FDA-type bureaucrat played by none other than Danny Aiello. The eagle-eyed will spot Eric Bogosian and Patrick Dempsey in barely-speaking roles.

BIG THANKS TO THE INCREDIBLE ARROW FILMS FOR THE REVIEW COPY.
