      The Stuff (1985) Peopled by leaden or hackneyed characters...The Stuff is further burdened by special effects of the most pedestrian kind. - Chicago Tribune

      Nasty Boys (1989) It is cliche-ridden, violent and an affront to civil libertarians everywhere. But it is also so unpretentious that it succeeds in entertaining. - Chicago Tribune
