Are 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.
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.
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.
