The Stuff – Il gelato che uccide

Scritto da: il 04.05.09
Articolo scritto da . Mi chiamo Alessandro Puglisi, sono nato nel 1985 a Catania. Sono cresciuto a pane ed arte, nelle sue più varie espressioni. Inguaribile lettore e cinefilo, amo ciò che riesce a lasciarmi un segno.

stuffIl trash non stanca mai, e quindi eccoci a parlare di un’opera che ben può rappresentarlo, vale a dire The Stuff – Il gelato che uccide (The Stuff, 1985), di Larry Cohen, il quale riveste qui il triplice ruolo di regista, sceneggiatore e produttore esecutivo.

La vicenda è quella di David Rutherford, ex agente dell’FBI,  e ora dedito allo spionaggio industriale, che viene assunto per indagare su un prodotto, The Stuff, che sta monopolizzando il mercato dei gelati, e che sembra creare dipendenza nei suoi consumatori.

Detto così, potrebbe sembrare nulla di straordinario. Si scoprirà solo in seguito, però, che The Stuff nasconde un segreto: è un parassita che trasforma l’organismo ospite in una sorta di morto vivente.

Premesse succose, che si dispiegano attraverso una sceneggiatura non particolarmente brillante ma con picchi ironici, in particolare nella seconda parte, da non disdegnare. L’idea è di un certo interesse, anche se i mezzi usati per rappresentarla talvolta deludono (è il caso delle scene all’interno dell’autobotte); meglio non rivelare altro circa gli effetti speciali. Ci limiteremo a dire che, tuttavia, la metafora del prodotto commerciale il quale si impone sul mercato e finisce per “annullare” la vita della popolazione, ha una certa valenza. Proprio in quest’ambito, sembra più che opportuna la scelta di non prendersi troppo sul serio, sfornando un prodotto filmico che, se comunque non esalta, almeno diverte.
