Added DiffLines:

* EldritchAbomination: The Stuff is a weird, mind-controlling BlobMonster that drives people to eat it, turning them into mindless, white-bleeding husks.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Colonel Spears is a bit of a sex fiend, as well as a BloodKnight who admits that he enjoys the sight of blood. However, even he's grossed out by the Stuff oozing out of its hosts.

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.

Added DiffLines:

* AntiClimax: [[spoiler:Spears' men take over a radio station and broadcast their warning about the dangers of the Stuff... and then cut to Nicole talking directly to the camera about how everyone immediately believed them and the Stuff was outlawed and destroyed. It was apparently just that easy.]]


Added DiffLines:

* TheUnintelligible: The protagonist, Mo Rutherford, slips into this at times. His strong Southern accent and tendency to mumble makes a good chunk of his dialogue incomprehensible.
