C.H.U.D. (1984) Poster

(1984)

Trivia

This film features a total of 3 actors who would later go on to play roles in the Home Alone series.
Laure Mattos, the movie's first on-screen victim, is the real-life wife of co-star Daniel Stern.
In 2011, as an April Fool's Day joke, the Criterion Collection, the USA's most prestigious distributor of home video, announced that it was releasing a special-edition DVD and Blu-ray Disc of the film with spine number 573. It was later assigned to Jalsaghar (1958). C.H.U.D. did however receive a special edition Blu-ray release from Arrow Video in 2016.
"C.H.U.D." is an acronym for "Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dweller", but it also means "Contamination Hazard Urban Disposal", as one can (barely) read on the crates full of toxic materials.
The original concept art of the C.H.U.D.s (featured in the still gallery of the Anchor Bay DVD release) shows that their faces looked more animal like in appearance.
