What It’s About: When a new junk food, The Stuff, takes the country by storm, it’s up to industrial spy Mo (Michael Moriarty) and cookie king “Chocolate Chip” Charlie (Garrett Morris) to discover the terrifying truth behind its popularity.
Why Watch it Today?: July is National Ice Cream Month, so why not catch quirky independent filmmaker Larry Cohen’s amusing satire on the rise and marketing of junk food in the 1980s? You may want to skip the ice cream before watching.
Where to Get It: Netflix (rental) or Amazon
