    Synopsis


    C.H.U.D. 2: Bud the C.H.U.D.
    Originally conceived as a Return of the Living Dead sequel and later inexplicably re-titled (despite the highly questionable marketing value of a C.H.U.D. franchise) this clunky attempt at a horror satire involves a pair of teenage do-nothings who abscond from a military base with a corpse who turns out to be a zombie, the by-product of a backfired military experiment. Despite the C.H.U.D. (Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dweller) references, Bud (Gerrit Graham) is really a zombie of the George Romero variety, chomping down on human flesh and spreading the virulent zombie plague to those unfortunate enough to be onscreen long enough. Eye-rolling Graham is fun to watch, as always, and Robert Vaughn puts in a goofy performance as a rabidly gung-ho general, but they provide scarce gems of humor in a morass of reconstituted horror plot elements and lame jokes. The end product is more C.R.U.D. than C.H.U.D. ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi

      I watched this movie with low expectations, as others who I know had seen it and considered Chud 2 an absolute waste of time. Usually when I expect the worst in a movie, it is possible to be pleasantly surprised-- and this was one of those cases, kind of. I bought this movie because I am collecting the whole Vestron Collectors Series, and this was definitely not among the best Lionsgate has released in the series. But as long as you are able to turn off your brain, you may be entertained for a while. Keep in mind, the script to this movie was originally written as a Return of the Living Dead sequel, but got rebranded somewhere in the process into a goofy take on CHUDs-- none of which are underground. If you (like myself) enjoy glorious examples of inept filmmaking, you should give this a chance.

      I had never seen Chud 2 before had seen the video box as a child and read reviews that it wasn't great and was barely related to original film and after watching it I have to agree. I purchased it cause it was on sale for a reduced cost and the transfer looks good and the special features especially the commentary is interesting. If you are collecting these lions gate vestron releases I would recommend it.

      C.H.U.D. II: Bud the C.H.U.D. would be a pretty good Return of the Living Dead sequel (which it was, nearly), so it's better if you forget about it having much of anything to do with C.H.U.D. it's not a, shall we say, great movie, but if you like your comedy (very) lowbrow and have a fondness for Gerritt Graham (Used Cars), it might be worth looking into.

      Yet another obscure release from the Vestron blu-ray series. As with most if not all of these Vestron releases, they are expensive and are for a limited group of people who like this kind of cheese. Fans buy with confidence & blind buyers should steer clear.

      I had never seen Chud 2 and heard it was a dud. Can’t say I disagree with that but the special features such as the interviews and commentaries made this even more interesting to me.

      I knew this wasn't like the first CHUD before I bought this Blu-Ray. However, this movie is fun and the Blu-Ray was really good. They also did a good job on Chopping Mall.

      Vestron releases another forgotten classic, loaded with special features, great quality image & audio. Recommended to fans of 80's horror comedies.

      If you liked this original you shouldn't go into the sequel expecting anything similar. It's great but completely different.
