About the film
USA 1985 87min 18A
Directed by Larry Cohen
Starring Michael Moriarty, Scott Bloom, and Garett Morris as "Chocolate Chip Charlie"
Something is coming out of the ground that looks like marshmallow, tastes sweet, and is highly addictive. It is The Stuff. And upon discovery, a group of enterprising capitalists decide to package and market The Stuff as the next dessert sensation. They say it’s better than ice cream, and can replace all of your meals. Unfortunately, what they don’t say is how it begins to rot your brain, and turn you into a zombie. Lucky for the human population, there are a few individuals who are suspicious of The Stuff. And it’s these individuals who fight to save humanity from total consumption by a food product gone bad. - Cora James
About the food pairing
Partnering with this movie is Death in Venice Gelato Co. Because what better food to serve with a movie about a dessert that’s better than ice cream than a gelato that’s better than all ice creams. Nevermind the death theme. Death in Venice Gelato Co. continues to invent new and imaginative flavours to tantalize your palate, and works with local dairies and suppliers to produce ice creams and sorbets that are far superior to most.
Food in Film at the Revue Cinema is curated by pastry chef Cora James.
