"They're not staying down there, anymore!"
"...And that's when the CHUDS came at me..." - Homer Simpson
For this week's entry, i chose a bad movie with a great monster, "C.H.U.D." (1984). It's been referenced not once, but twice on "The Simpsons"! The plot concerns a number of disappearances around New York City, mostly homeless people and animals. A police officer, a photo journalist and his girlfriend, and a homeless man team up to find out what the hell is going on. Turns out it's CHUDS.
That's an acronym, by the way, which stands for cannibalistic humanoid underground dweller. And that's exactly what the movie delivers! Goopy, lantern-eyed mutant hobos irradiated by toxic waste! The movie suffers from a lack of scenes that showcase the monsters, but they look really great when they ARE on-screen.
Check out the trailer here!
