'C.H.U.D. II: Bud The Chud' Blu-Ray Review

Our movie opens in two ways, the military is wanting to perfect the 'C.H.U.D.'s and a couple of teenagers lose their teachers cadaver. Now a 'C.H.U.D'. is simply a Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dweller. The military want to use these creatures to fight in wars rather than risk actual humans.

Our teenagers Kevin (Bill Calvert), and Steve (Brian Robbins) were in their teachers lab when they discover a human corpse. The two want to use it but they lose the corpse. They decide to break into a government lab and steal a body but the corpse they end up with is Bud the Chud (Gerrit Graham) a human whose body is decomposing due to the military experiments it has gone through. Bud is brought back to life sort of, with a disease it carries starting to infect everyone it comes into contact with. Kevin and Steve aren't totally at fault for this hometown destruction. Their friend Katie (Tricia Leigh Fisher) was right there to help procure Bud from the military.

Now, what helps this horror flick is the comedy that is added to the plot. Kevin and Steve are good for a laugh but when you add Katie, along with the Army, the local police, and the FBI well let's face it you really do open yourself up for a laugh. All Bud wants to do is bring dead people back to flesh eating zombies. It's everybody else who wants to try and stop them.

Lionsgate brings this wonderfully funny and ghoulish movie to Blu-ray on November 22nd, 2016. The quality of the Blu-Ray is fantastic and the sights and sounds are excellent. This is a must for all horror aficionados. It will be a wonderful addition to that personal library. So don't waste any time and see who comes out ahead.
