C.H.U.D. II Bud the Chud: Huge surprise
30 June 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

The original C.H.U.D (1984) was a pretty poor horror starring John Heard & Daniel Stern. It wasn't awful but was an instantly forgettable effort.

Understandably going into the sequel I expected more of the same and prepared myself for mediocrity only to come across a very pleasant surprise.

It tells the story of a couple of friends who accidentally lose their schools biology cadaver. Fearing expulsion they set about stealing a corpse from a nearby facility only for it to come to life!

In traditional zombie style the infection spreads and before you know it the town has been overtaken. These aren't normal zombies however, our "Chuds" only take a nibble on their victim and have a low level of intellect.

What sets this apart from the first movie is the humour, there is plenty here and does a lot of good for the film. It simply doesn't take itself seriously and for that reason it comes across really well.

Starring industry legend Robert Vaughn and Gerrit Graham as the titular Bud the Chud this is a fantastic little movie that is considerably better than it should have been.

With a rocking 80's soundtrack, a surprising budget behind it and some real laughs Bud The Chud has to be considered an underrated 80's classic.

The fact this never became a proper franchise saddens me.

The Good:

Robert Vaughn & Gerrit Graham are great

Great 80's soundtrack

Actually looks quite good

Some funny moments

The Bad:

Nothing springs to mind

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

The old cat jumping scare cliche never gets old

There are anals of history
