Tonight, we discuss two certified Larry Cohen horror classics, Q: The Winged Serpent from 1982, and The Stuff, released in 1985. An incredibly prolific writer and director, Larry Cohen would make Special Effects and Perfect Strangers before producing what many would regard as his masterpiece in The Stuff also starring Moriarty (kind of an alter-ego for Cohen, appearing in four of his movies). Before Q, he had written for television (notably Columbo, Branded – which he created, and The Rat Patrol), directed a pair of black exploitation movies, as well as the classic horror movies, It’s Alive and God Told Me To.
