yummy goo from the earth?

12 years, 7 months 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?

12 years 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.

"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 (70 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."

TDcore's Horror Journal: 2018 (50 movies items)

" This one was just plain fun, but not without it's social commentary as usual with Larry Cohen films. At it's core it's a good old-fashioned monster movie full of awesome special effect shots, but it's also a comment on consumerism, capitalism and even takes some satirical jabs at Conservatives with Paul Sorivno as an perverted, racist army general. Basically this film was Ronald Reagan's nightmare back in it's time, and it's themes are still relevant today. Some people won't be expecting the "

""Are you eating it ...or is it eating you?" "It'll change your life forever." "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." "It's smooth and creamy. It's low calorie and delicious. And it kills. It's The Stuff!" "Enough Is Never Enough.""
