Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The Stuff isn't a genre defining B-Movie by any means, but it's a rather unique and fresh example of the crazed originality such a genre possesses. You just can't get enough!"
‑ Matt Donato, We Got This Covered
"Its execution never lives up to its scrumptious satiric premise."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"'Are you eating it? Or is it eating you?' I love it!"
‑ Scott Weinberg, Apollo Guide
"Totally resistible horror comedy by the playful B film filmmaker Larry Cohen."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Playful comic-horror is a fine diversion. Consumers, beware!"
‑ Aaron Hillis, Premiere Magazine

‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Likably goofy Larry Cohen horror satire."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
