The Stuff is a much better film than being given credit in this article, and Larry Cohen should really not be dismissed so casually — the man directed Black Caesar, Hell Up in Harlem, God Told Me To, Q: The Winged Serpent, and the hilariously inappropriate It’s Alive.

Ooh, I get to plug one of my favorite author’s new books! If you haven’t read The Unidentified by Colin Dickey, I HIIIIIGHLY recommend it.
