C.H.U.D. (1984)

Director: Douglas Cheek

Stars: John Heard, Daniel Stern, Christopher Curry, Kim Greist, John Goodman

A bizarre series of murders in New York City seems to point toward the existence of a race of mutant cannibals living under the streets. A courageous policeman, a photo journalist and his girlfriend, and a nutty bum, who seems to know a lot about the creatures, band together to try and determine what the creatures are and how to stop them.

This was a cheesy 80's horror movie with the normal bad clothes and hair. The strange part about the movie was the cast. It had a few seasoned actors in it that became even bigger stars. John Heard and Daniel Stern had already been working, but they still decided to do this horror movie. John Goodman had a very small part in the movie, but he was still just getting his feet wet in the acting pool.

You do not see much of the monsters themselves, but when you do they are pretty scary. It is not something you want to see coming down the street at you. The movie is a bit slow at time with a lot of talking and arguing. Does not make for the best of 80's horror. There were just too many of them. Maybe they should have tried to make it more funny instead of trying to be so serious. Enjoy.
