Larry Cohen's The Stuff Is About to Become a Delicious Treat on British Blu-rayAre you a fan of Larry Cohen’s subversively wacko 1985 killer yogurt flick The Stuff and have been dying for it to get a Blu-ray release? There’s good news for you, but only if you’re British or have a region-free Blu-ray player.

For our friends across the pond and the fiends here at home with region-free capabilities that can’t get enough of The Stuff, the one-of-a-kind deadly dessert social satire is bowing on Blu-ray March 10th courtesy of British distributors Arrow Video.

Michael Moriarty, Andrea Marcovicci, Garrett Morris, Paul Sorvino, and Danny Aiello star in this Larry Cohen (Q, The Winged Serpent, the It’s Alive trilogy) flick that is uniquely one of a kind.

Synopsis:
The Stuff is the new dessert taking supermarket shelves by storm. It’s delicious, low in calories, and – better still – doesn’t stain the family carpet… What’s not to like?! Well, for a start it has a life of its own, and we’re not talking friendly live bacteria…

Young Jason seems to be the only one who doesn’t love The Stuff – in fact he won’t go anywhere near it, after having seen the pudding crawling around the fridge one night. What’s more, everyone who eats The Stuff has started acting really weird… Now, teaming up with wise-cracking industrial saboteur “Mo,” Jason must put a stop to The Stuff and the organisation behind it or face a gooey, gloopy demise.

Arrow’s loaded special edition Blu-ray will include a new High Definition restoration of the film from a brand new 2K scan of the original camera negative presented in High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) and Standard Definition DVD with Original stereo 2.0 audio (uncompressed PCM on the Blu-ray) and Optional English SDH subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing.

Special Features:

  • Can’t Get Enough of The Stuff: Making Larry Cohen’s Classic Creature Feature – Documentary featuring Larry Cohen, producer Paul Kurta, actress Andrea Marcovicci, Steve Neill (mechanical makeup effects) and Kim Newman
  • Introduction and trailer commentary by director and The Stuff fan Darren Bousman (Saw II, Saw III)
  • Original trailer
  • Reversible sleeve with original and newly commissioned artwork by Gary Pullin
  • Collector’s booklet featuring new writing on the film by Joel Harley, illustrated with original stills and promotional materials

    One has to assume that if the UK and Ireland are getting such a loaded Blu-ray edition of The Stuff, then the US should soon follow – hopefully.

    Universal Acquires Riley Sager’s Final Girls for Film Adaptation

    Published

    on

    The “final girl” has long been a staple of the horror film genre, and lately there have been several films with just about that very same title focusing on her and/or them. Well, guess what… there’s another one coming as Deadline is reporting that Universal Pictures has won a bidding battle to option rights for Final Girls, the bestselling novel from Riley Sager that hit shelves this past July.

    The movie adaptation will be produced by Anonymous Content’s Nicole Clemens along with Sugar23’s Ashley Zalta and Michael Sugar as that stand-alone company continues to ramp up.

    Sager’s book centers on Quincy Carpenter, who 10 years ago as a college student went on vacation to Pine Cottage with five friends and came back alone, the only survivor of a horror movie-scale massacre. In an instant, the press dubbed her a “Final Girl,” coined for the group of similar survivors.

    We’ll have more for you on this as it comes.

    Trailer: Paul Solet’s Bullet Head Hits Blu-ray This January

    Published

    on

    After checking out writer-director Paul Solet’s pregnancy gone awry flick Grace a few years back, the talented filmmaker made my list of directors to watch out for.

    And it is with this in mind that we’d like to share the trailer and Blu-ray/DVD release info for his newest action-survival-crime flick Bullet Head.

    The movie stars Adrien Brody, John Malkovich, and Rory Culkin (Scream 4) as a group of thieves trapped in an abandoned warehouse with a vicious man-eating dog…

    And Antonio Banderas?

    That’ll work!

    The trailer reminds me of Fede Alvarez’s Don’t Breathe, but as we all know, that is NOT a bad thing. Throw in some crime-movie good times and this could be a sleeper hit.

    You can check out the trailer for yourself below – along with a full list of special features – and then let us know what you think in the comments below or on social media!

    The film has been rated R by the MPAA for “violence, bloody images, language, some drug use, and nudity.”

    Bullet Head hits theaters December 8th, and Blu-ray/DVD January 9th, 2018.

    PRE-ORDER NOW!

    Synopsis:

    Oscar winner Adrien Brody, Antonio Banderas and John Malkovich deliver the action in this riveting crime story about three career criminals trapped in a warehouse after a heist.

    The Dollmaker Short Film Review – Welcome to Heebie Jeebie City!

    Published

    on

    Starring Perri Lauren, Sean Meehan, Dan Berkey

    Directed by Alan Lougher


    The loss of a young child drives a mother to take a set of unusual measures to preserve his memory, and all it takes is one call to The Dollmaker.

    When the short film by Alan Lougher opens up, we see a rather disturbing image of a little boy inside a casket, and the sound of a grieving mom speaking with an unidentified man in the background – he’s requesting something personal of the child to help “finish” his product, and it’s not before long that mom has her little boy back…well, kind of. What remains of the child is the representation of his former self, although it’s contained within the frame of a not-so-attractive doll, and the boy’s father isn’t a believer in this type of hocus-pocus (or the price to have this constructed, either). The doll comes with a specific set of instructions, but most importantly, you cannot spend more than one hour a day with the doll, or else you’ll go mad thinking that the soul inside of it is actually the person that you lost – sounds reasonable, doesn’t it?

    Well this is just too good to be true for Mommy, and as the short film progresses, we’ll just have to wait and see what happens to her mind – it’s ultimately a depressing scenario, but Lougher gives it that creepy feel, almost like visiting a relative’s home and seeing their dearly departed pet stuffed and staring at you over the fireplace – HEEBIE-JEEBIE CITY, if you ask me. All in all, the quickie is gloomy, but ultimately chilling in nature, and is most definitely worth a watch, and if I might use a quote from one of my favorite films to apply to this subject matter: “Sometimes…dead is better.”
