I just realied it after so long!  The Stuff is made of the leftovers of the Stay Puff Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters!  It makes complete sense now!

Recently watched this on YouTube and liked it enough that I got the Anchor Bay DVD. I love the premise. It's so utterly ridiculous and insane, and the cover art is pretty creepy. And very much like a typical bad movie, promising far more than the movie can deliver. My one gripe with it, really, is the bizarre editing, which often results in plot holes.

-What, exactly, happened that caused Vickers' dog Ben to attack him? He shouts, "I'll buy more!" before apparently dying, but why was he on the floor attempting to use the phone while in apparent pain? There's more of the scene featured in the trailer and it looks as if Vickers was having the same reaction to the Stuff inside him that Charlie does later, but if he ate the Stuff shouldn't he be a mindless Stuffie like the others? And what did he mean by "I've got a treat for both of us?"

-Why did the Stuff leave the post office clerk's body? The Stuff's behavior is pretty inconsistent throughout, actually.

-The Stuffies try and run Mo down in the streets but then Fletcher gives him money and a job. And then they try and kill him again later. How much control does Fletcher even have over the Stuffies? He clearly wants Mo working for him, but the Stuff and the Stuffies clearly want him dead. Unless he just didn't want to kill Mo at his office for some reason.

-Why flood the plane with Stuff? Jason's parents didn't know who Mo was, or who was even driving the car that picked Jason up, so none of the Stuffies should know Jason was even aboard. Don't tell me they went through all of that trouble just to (apparently) kill the pilot!

-When and how did Charlie get the Stuff in him? I assume it was while he was at the diner Mo left him at, since they had the scene of the waitress going into the freezer which was filled with Stuff, but they could've been clearer.

-Some examples of the weird editing: we see Nicole and Jason fleeing through a room full of empty bins being chased by the Stuff, and they come to a door which they have some difficulty opening. In the very next cut, they're out in a hallway suddenly with the Stuff chasing them. Then, in the next cut after THAT, they're outside and the Stuff is pouring out after them. Charlie's death is equally badly edited: we see him transforming, then cut to Jason walking down the hall outside the room; cut to inside as Charlie starts puking up Stuff and suddenly Jason is there looking down at Charlie's exploded-apart head lying on the floor. We never see Charlie's head actually blow up!

Despite all these problems it's still a great movie.

Aaah yes, The Stuff. I stayed up late one night at my mum's to watch this on cable TV. I could tell even back then that this was all a bit silly, but then as now I had a real horror of things getting into the body and messing with your biology and mind, so the stuff with the zombies, folks puking up ambulatory glop, all that stuck with me. I'd like to see it again because I seem to remember there being a "Kicker ending" but I'm not quite sure what it was...

I remember when I watched this movie, it was pretty strange  Hatred the movie was just horrible, unwatchable, and of course it was very silly. The guy was very annoying to me. I though this movie was a classic but now I realize it was a classic of B-Movies.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
