Directed by Larry Cohen
Americans start acting strangely after eating an alien ice cream called "The Stuff" in cult director Larry Cohen's (IT'S ALIVE) must-see consumer satire. After tasty goo begins oozing from the ground, a P.I. is hired to find out what's in it. His search leads him to a boy whose family turned into virtual zombies after eating The Stuff and together the pair set out to stop the deadly dessert dish - before it's too late. If Roger Corman remade THEY LIVE, it might look something like this silly and, yes, scary treat. Serve yourself some fro-yo and push play.

A lampoon on 80s America as well as older sci-fi horror films. The story is goofy, the characters are over-the-top and is just a genuinely fun ride the whole time. The practical effects are crazy too, they always catch you off gaurd.
This was a first watch for me and it was much better than I thought it would be. A lot of social and political commentary involved but not in a heavy-handed way.
This is excellent. Mo and Spears really make the movie.
still one of the best movies ever
