Everyone remembers the original 1984 cult classic C.H.U.D, but how many recall its successor five years later? The Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers, better known as C.H.U.D’s, are coming back with a vengeance in stunning high definition when the Vestry Video Collector’s Series brings C.H.U.D. II: Bud the Chud (1985) back to life in a limited edition blu-ray later this fall.
In this outrageous sequel to C.H.U.D., “the half-dead, decomposing humanoids,” led by the charming Bud, must be eliminated in order to stop a spreading plague in this classic horror satire.
The film’s synopsis reads as follows:
“Kevin, Steve and Katie are an inseparable trio of friends doing some extracurricular snooping in the 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, 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!”
This special edition blu-ray will include all new special features including an audio commentary with the film’s director, David Irving, and interviews with some of the cast including, Gerrit Graham, Tricia Leigh Fisher. There is also an interview with Special Effects artist Allan Apone. For the tech savvy the technical specs are as follows: The film is presented in 1080p High Definition, 16×9 Widescreen with an aspect ratio of 1.85:1 with original 2.0 stereo sound.
