Eps 83 – The Stuff (1985) – Decades of Horror 1980s

Play

“It’s smooth and creamy. It’s low calorie and delicious. And it kills. It’s The Stuff!” – the tagline for Larry Cohen’s cult classic from 1985, The Stuff, threatens in a heavy handed – but comically effective – manner. Following up his successful low budget horror films It’s Alive (1974) and Q (1982), Cohen once again employs Michael Moriarty to face the satirical horrors the inventive director cooks up for him – in this case, a tasty alien goo that bubbles up out of the Earth that takes over the bodies of whomever devours it. Thomas Mariani, Doc Rotten and Christopher G. …

The Grue-crew are united in their love and appreciation for Jeremy Saulnier’s intense thriller GREEN ROOM. The must-see film grabs you by the boo-boo and never lets go as Anton Yelchin, Alia Shawkat and Imogen Poots struggle to survive the violent oppression of Patrick Stewart and his neo-Nazi cohorts. This film is brutal.

The Grue-crew wildly disagree about the Asylum film ZOOMBIES but have the best time discussing the shlock-fest on this episode of HNR. The Black Saint is all about it, calling it one of his favorite for 2016 while Vixen, of all people, steals the night with the best quote ever: “So much awful packed Into 1 movie.” The film is bonkers with zombie gorillas, koalas and giraffes – yes, zombie giraffes! When a flesh eating monkey throws bloody eyeballs at the camera like it’s flinging monkey-poo, you know you have a winner.
