Introduced by Larry Cohen himself, this is one of the most sought after B-grade horror/sci-fi flicks of all time. You may never eat ice-cream again.
A sweet sticky substance found bubbling out of the ground becomes a best-selling ice-cream substitute and possible solution to world hunger. But ice-cream moguls, unhappy with the product’s success, enlist an ex-FBI agent to find out what it really is so they can destroy it. Slowly they discover that the big question is – as the immortal line goes – “Are you eating it, or is it eating you?”
◆ Writer-director Larry Cohen – who will introduce the film – made one of the legendary spoofs of 195Os science-fiction movies, blending it with some deadly social satire about the evils of fast-food marketing and American consumerism.
