I was racking my brain trying to come up with a good clip that freaked me out as a child that I could ‘Cher’ with you. I thought about it long and hard, and then said to myself “Wait – I got you, babe!” Yes, I came up with the perfect clip along with some terrible puns and references to Sonny Bono as well. Because…..Sonny Bono is in the clip! See how that all worked out? And the traumatizing clip is from 1986’s Troll, a fun little horror romp not really for kids (although a lot of kids probably watched it). Now let’s watch Sonny Bono morph into a bunch of plants!
I mean, the troll is kinda cute – even if he is kind of an asshole. The make-up effects are pretty top notch (as were most in the 80’s), and if you’re into former husbands of Cher turning into shrubbery….then Troll is the movie for you! Unfortunately for Troll, it would be it’s successor Troll 2 that would go on to live in infamy as the movie everyone would cheer for. Any movie that has a seductive ‘corn-on-the-cob popcorn scene’ is sure to always win the prize. But we shall never forget you, Sonny Bono. You sacrificed yourself for the greater good of greenery.
It’s moments like this when I love the internet. For those of you who don’t know about the 1985 B-movie extravaganza called The Stuff, you really need to do some research. It has drama. It has intrigue. It has something that you eat that eats you from the inside out. And it has a character named Chocolate Chip Charlie. All of this somewhat pointless info is leading up to me telling you that someone over in the UK has recreated an actual tub of ‘The Stuff‘ and you can purchase one on Ebay!
Yes. Those are the actual replicas that you can purchase. Pretty impressive if I do say so myself. Just think of how impressed your B-movie loving friends would be if they went to your fridge for a cold one and got an eyeful of The Stuff instead. Yes, the seller is located in the UK, but they do ship to the US and it’s honestly not a bad price in total to get your hands on one of these (about $30 total). Head on over to the Ebay page right HERE and feel free to click ‘Buy It Now‘. Just be warned. If the carton arrives and it has a delicious white treat inside, proceed cautiously because this may happen:
