Trailer Trash #1: The Stuff (1985)

So this is what happens when you get the munchies really bad.

This oddball “horror” film from indie legend Larry Cohen (It’s Alive) might have the distinction of Paul Sorvino and Danny Aiello in the cast, but it’s 100% grindhouse grot.

The synopsis on IMDb is somewhat brilliant: “Weird yummy goo erupts from the earth and is discovered by a couple of miners. They taste it and decide to market it because it tastes so good. The American public literally eats up the new dessert sensation now known as the Stuff but, unfortunately, it takes over the brains of those who eat it, turning them into zombie-like creatures.”

Admit it, you’re a little intrigued. Zone Horror sure know how to fill their schedule. Maybe they’ll show Attack of the Killer Tomatoes next.

Cheers to Ross Hadlington for the find.
