The runaway success of The Stuff starts to cut into the profits of ice cream companies, so they hire David "Mo" Rutherford to do some industrial spying. He slowly uncovers that The Stuff's producers have a lot of secrets, and [[MayContainEvil people have all moved to a single town to produce it]]. With the help of a "Chocolate Chip Charlie" (played by Series/SaturdayNightLive veteran Garrett Morris), a former snack food mogul and martial artist, they discover [[AssimilationPlot the plot to export the parasitic monster]] to the world, and stop it with the help of a retired Colonel and his personal militia.

* BodyHorror: The Stuff tends to hollow out it's victims. It's also fond of massively distorting their bodies when it comes out of them.

''The Stuff'' is a 1985 Horror movie directed, written and executive produced by LarryCohen about a snack food that is actually a living, [[MindControl mind-controlling]], addictive... [[BuffySpeak stuff]]. It also apparently [[BodyHorror hollows out its victims]] and turns them into [[MadeOfPlasticine extremely fragile puppets]]. The movie is something of a [[AnAesop satire about consumerism]], with the world needing to be saved from a corrupt junk food empire.
