The Stuff

12.05.2012 / 22h00
THE STUFF – We all scream for ice-cream
USA 1985 / Original english with french subtitles / 90’ / color / Directed by Larry Cohen / Starring Michael Moriarty, Andrea Marcovicci, Paul Sorvino

When a couple of miners discover yummy goo (spurting right out of the earth from a sphincter-like hole, no less) that tastes even better than ice cream, they decide to market the sensation to the gullible American audience. Consumerist society soon slips into a zombie-like stupor, dangerously addicted to the sweet « stuff ». The suffering ice-cream industry hires saboteur Michael Moriarty to find out how to deal with the phenomenon… Little do they know that the dessert is actually a living parasite taking over its host’s body and soul! Fact: most of the special effects were done with gallons of Häagen-Dazs!
