THIS C.H.U.D.'S FOR YOU! THE INFAMOUS SEQUEL IN NAME ONLY COMES TO BLU-RAY, COURTESY OF LIONSGATE'S VESTRON COLLECTOR'S SERIES LABEL!
I haven't seen C.H.U.D. II in so long, but recall it being more like a failed RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD sequel than a C.H.U.D. followup. Still, it's a pretty fun little flick that unexpectedly got the royal treatment from Lionsgate.
While I'm not chomping at the bit to get it, I do plan on adding this title to my collection after the holidays, if only for the sake of nostalgia. (Unless I get it for Christmas, which would be super cool!)
Synopsis: Kevin, Steve, and Katie are an inseparable trio of friends doing some extracurricular snooping inthe school science lab when, among the test tubes and beakers, they discover a corpse! But before they can say 'Abra Cadaver,' the body disappears, rolling down Route 51 strapped to a gurney.
The kids need a spare stiff, and fast. What they find is 'Bud the Chud,' (Gerrit Graham) a half-dead decomposing humanoid, the result of a military experiment gone haywire. When Bud sets out on a killing spree, the kids, the Army, the police, and the FBI are hot on his trail, trying to save the entire town from becoming 'Chudified!'
