I love a campy B-Horror as much as the next Horror buff, but this was so bad that it's... well, it's just bad.
The Stuff is just an example of the critics latching onto a forgotten film and trying to make it a cool, "cult" classic just to be original. Nobody liked this garbage in '85 and nobody really likes it now.
Just like Regina says to Gretchen in Mean Girls, "Fetch is not going to happen!" Yeah, well, The Stuff is not going to happen. It sucks. I'll stick to C.H.U.D.
Now THAT was some straight up David Copperfield sh_t!
