The Month of Horror Day 9: C.H.U.D.

Basement contributor Matt Bellamy has taken it upon himself to watch and review at least one horror movie a day for the month of October . . . because he's awesome that way! Today, Brother Bellamy tackles the 1980's cult horror flick C.H.U.D.! Which doesn't stand for Cinematic Happenings Under Development, although the creators of that website did borrow the name.

This is not a good movie, it's a great movie! No, just kidding, it's actually pretty terrible but therein lies the charm, it's one of those hilariously bad, cheesy horror movies from the 80's that are a dime a dozen. What exactly does C.H.U.D. stand for anyway? Here goes: Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers! The basic premise is that there are mutants living in the sewers under New York City and they've had enough, they want to come up to the streets because living in a sewer kind of sucks and killing humans is far more fulfilling! Who is going to stop the C.H.U.D.'s? None other than the dad and one of the burglars from 'Home Alone', John Heard and Daniel Stern; what a duo! Again, it's pure 80's cheese but that's why I like it.
