Heaven help me, but I didn't mind this idiotic comedy
2 September 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw this expecting the worst, and was surprised at how it wasn't dreadful. It isn't really a good film ,but it has a bunch of amusing lines and generally funny bits. After some teens steal a body from a government research facility, it comes alive and goes on a rampage turning all it encounters into cannibal zombie type beasts. I haven't yet seen CHUD but this is a name only sequel and the very mention of CHUD's is nonsensical because none of the creature in the film do any underground dwelling. This could have been truly terrible but the cast is game. Brian Robbins and Bill Calvert do OK as the two responsible for the whole mess and Tricia Leigh Fisher is pretty appealing as the love interest. Robert Vaughn is ace, proving he'll appear in just about anything. His snide, crazy and enthusiastic government operative is the second best thing about this film, with the best being Gerrit Graham's performance as Bud the Chud. Despite saying little he wrings a good deal of sympathy and charming amusement from the unpromising role. The problem with this film is the complete lack of gore and nudity. This is the sort of material crying out for a more adult treatment but this remarkably tame, suspense free stuff could easily be watched by children. There aren't even any on screen bites or notable attacks which means the film rests entirely on its cheesy humour. It works up to a point, but this is neither bad enough to be a camp classic nor good enough to keep the attention for the whole duration. By the end, although Bud is pretty cool, I was pretty bored of the whole affair. It has its moments but it really is pretty stupid. Worth a watch if really, really daft and cheesy eighties horror comedy is your thing, if not definitely one to avoid.
