Gotta love that "Bud the C.H.U.D." song
28 March 2011 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Okay, first of all forget ALL that you know about the C.H.U.D.s (providing you have seen the first movie, that is), because this sequel has nothing to do with that at all. Well, sure they mention them by name and that they apparently have something extracted from them, but that is where the comparison ends.

"C.H.U.D. II: Bud the Chud" is a downright comedy, where as the original C.H.U.D. movie was a horror. However, there weren't really any laughs throughout the movie, so it kind of failed on that front as well.

Now, if you are familiar with the C.H.U.D. then you know that it is some kind of mutant humanoid being, not a shambling undead zombie, right? Right! Well in the sequel, a C.H.U.D. is now a living dead corpse; a zombie, if you will. What? How does one go about totally changing the layout of a horror movie creature into something completely overnight and expect the audience to just eat it raw? That was a bad mistake.

The storyline in "C.H.U.D. II: Bud the Chud" have a frozen C.H.U.D. specimen frozen down in containment by the military. But some frisky teenagers manage to steal the corpse and bring it back to life. And Bud is hungry, thus goes the neighborhood and the school dance... There you go, the general outlay of the story.

Being a late 80's movie, "C.H.U.D. II: Bud the Chud" is fairly stereotypical for its age. So it might be a trip down memory lane for some people to watch this.

The cast in "C.H.U.D. II: Bud the Chud" was fairly good. Most memorable was Gerrit Graham (playing Bud Oliver/Bud the C.H.U.D.), and he did managed to get something cool out of the C.H.U.D. role, despite it being a comedy zombie movie! Duh! Robert Vaughn (playing Colonel Masters) was a welcomed face as well, though he was a bit difficult to fully take seriously as a military officer in this movie.

I remember watching this movie when I was a young teenager, and I recall parts of the title song (Bud the C.H.U.D.) even after these many, many years. I did recall it was living dead creatures as well, but decided to revisit the movie for old times sake. Now that I have, I feel a bit disappointed with the experience. The movie is a low-end comedy, so unless you like cheesy comedies that cash in on former titles, then this movie is not really worth the time. (No offense to fans!)
