yummy goo from the earth?

16 years ago at Apr 22 19:51
This is one of those movies that you watch, then wish you could get that time back in your life. Sure, there's "tasty goo" that turns you into a zombie-like thing (and kills you in the process), and a kid eats shaving cream and pukes in a guy's car... Maybe it's worth watching, if you need to check off something in your "cheesy-80s-movies" list.

Are You Eating it? Or Is It Eating You?

15 years, 5 months ago at Nov 26 19:41
The 1985 (what a year!) Flick about a new treat found within the earth that tastes suprisingly good and becomes an obssesion with the American public. Before long, Jason realizes that not only is it becomes an every day dessert for him and his family, it's the only thing left in the fridge! Completely stocked with The Stuff; Jason knows this is not just an afternoon treat. He teams up with an ex-F... read more

Amalgamated Dairies hires David Rutherford, an FBI man turned industrial saboteur, to investigate a popular new product called "The Stuff," a new dessert product that is blowing ice cream sales out of the water. Nobody knows how it’s made or what’s in it, but people are lining up to buy it. It's got a delicious flavor to die for.

" WARNING! If you see the Stuff in stores, call the police. If you have it in your home, don't touch it--get out. The Stuff is a product of nature, a deadly living organism. It is addictive and destructive. It can overcome your mind and take over your body, and nothing can stop it. Enough is never enough, of The Stuff.

Message or Meaning! (24 movies items)

" The message: In the film, a sweet and addictive alien substance becomes a popular dessert in the United States, but soon begins attacking people and turning them into zombies. This film is a satire on the American lifestyle and consumer society. The Stuff is a organic glob from space, that is packaged as a delicious, frozen, yogurt like dessert. Only thing, is that it consumes you from the inside out. And people will still buy it. Just like when people, buy things sight unsound in mass q"

" First Viewing Viewing Date: October 12th Via: Amazon Prime Plot: A delicious, mysterious goo that oozes from the earth is marketed as the newest dessert sensation, but the tasty treat rots more than teeth when zombie-like snackers who only want to consume more of the strange substance at any cost begin infesting the world.

"6.4. Hiekkakuoppatyöläinen löytää maasta sykkivää valkoista mönjää, jota hän tottakai ensimmäisenä tunkee suuhunsa. Hyvänmakuinen löllö päätyy sitten massatuotantona kauppoihin ja alkaa muuttaa ihmisiä raivohulluiksi sekopäiksi. Joskus mönjä vetelee öisin ympäri jääkaappia ja tappaa ihmisiä tulemalla ja menemällä miten sattuu. Leffan jälkeenkään en oikein tiedä, miten mönjä pelitti, mutta sen seuraaminen oli ihan huvittavaa."

70 MORE Underappreciated Horror Movies (71 movies items)

"Who said b-movies couldn't take on consumerism? Legendary exploitation and schlockmeister Larry Cohen writes and directs this thinly veiled critique of greedy corporate America and the mindless sheep that take its lead. The discovery of a mysterious substance that flows from the ground leads to it's immediate commercialization, even at the consumer's sake. Not that they are complaining as this living slime is highly addictive AND all consuming. Fret not, things don't get too heavy handed, inste"

"1.11. Ajan henkeen sopivaa napakkaa satiiria ja piikittelyä, mutta kokonaisuus olisi saanut olla ronskimpi. Katseluhetkellä väsytti aivan helvetisti, joten tarkempaa kommentääriä ei nyt irtoa. Kauhukuukausi päättyi tähän ja 13 enemmän tai vähemmän genren edustajan väijymistä pidän kohtalaisena saavutuksena. Ensi vuonna uudestaan."
