    Coolest movie ever? Hard to argue when the cast includes Harry Dean Stanton, Tom Atkins, Donald Pleasance, Isaac Hayes, Adrienne Barbeau...

    Watched this on Joe Bob Briggs

    Love Larry Cohen and even like this movie, but man I hadn’t seen it in a long time and it is a mess. I like that Cohen did his usual social commentary implanted into horror, but this thing is not put together well. Some of the effects are charming, but the Stuff itself looks really bad. As a horror movie, this fails. But it is pretty entertaining, thanks in part to Michael Moriarty. I still kinda like the movie, but it’s a giant step down from Q.

    Great gothic horror, wonderful viewing for the spooky season. Barbara Steele is mesmerizing in this movie. Literally a perfect movie to watch for Halloween.

    This Zahler dude only makes great movies apparently. This was my favorite film of his yet. And it wasn’t at all what I was expecting, given the title. It’s more like Bone Tomahawk than Brawl in Cell Block 99 in the way that it’s paced. He’s great at catching you off guard by how slow his films can be are. You’d think it would be boring but I was captivated for the entire, incredibly long runtime. Look forward to following his career.
