Editorial Reviews

Beneath the streets of New York city, there are hundreds of miles of subterranean tunnels unfit for
anything human, unauthorized for anything experimental and unlikely to come to the surface...until now. Something horrible is loose in the sewers of Manhattan, and the city's homeless population have begun to mutate into 'Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers.' They are C.H.U.D. - hideous, hungry and headed for the streets! John Heard, Daniel Stern and Kim Greist star in this wildly original horror shocker, filmed on (and below) the
streets of New York City where hundreds of tourists
every year are still devoured by actual C.H.U.D.!

We'd see much of them later.

I've checked Anchor Bay's own website and compared DVD information between what's listed for the 2001 release and this one, and I can't find anything different.

I always enjoy this film. But when I saw the knew Anchorbay cover, a must have. Looking at the cover brings back alot of memories. It's about time these cult classic are getting the respect they deserve. Thank you Anchorbay, a job well done.

For a movie that has been released twice on DVD in the past ten years (one of which with 'cult classic film series' plastered across a new slipcover), it seems that 'C.H.U.D.' should have more going for it than what shows up on the screen. This is too bad: I remember quite well seeing the previews for this film when it was first released and, missing out on its theater run, I was really looking forward to watching it all these years later.

The specific thing that convinced me to pick it up now was this new release by Anchor Bay - with a dozen or so other films - sporting a new slipcover and a cult fiction stamp on the front that makes it look as though it's been approved by the USDA. I'm all for forgotten and obscure films getting their due, but I have to wonder who is the target audience for this series -- not only is 'C.H.U.D.' included, but so is Werner Herzog's 'Fitzcarraldo'. Obviously everyone's opinion on what particular film qualifies as a cult classic is going to be different, but I had a difficult time seeing it in 'C.H.U.D.'

People are disappearing below the city's streets, and that catch-all 80's bogeyman, toxic waste and what it does to people, is ultimately to blame. Still being led-on with the idea of cult classic, I was expecting something additional to the B-movie plot, but C.H.U.D. has none of those quirky elements that launch a movie into 'cult' territory. Viewers coming to this film for the first time are unlikely to see the attraction it may hold for those who remember it from its first release -- I know that I was disappointed.

I wanted to like this movie. I remembered having seen this movie. I remembered not liking the movie a lot. I thought if I only watched the movie a second time as an appreciate B movie fan, using my B movie sensibilities. Well, I was tired last night as I watched this movie. It was late, but I've got to say that what stood out the most to me was how poorly the movie flowed and how bad the acting was. It is very obvious when watching this movie that the actors are indeed acting. You can feel many of the lines as they are ineptly uttered by the actors. The plot is fair and I think better acting might have improved this movie a lot. But as it was filmed the acting is quite tedious at times. I never quite get engrossed in the film. The acting isn't very believable. The plot is far from engrossing. The character situations just don't work for the film. First you have the photographer and his girlfriend. Well, the actor/photographer is probably the best in the film. This guy went on to be a teacher in the movie 187 with Samuel Jackson. That actor is great in that movie as a seedy immoral teacher. But in this movie the actor just isn't used very well. I wondered throughout the film who the lead character was supposed to be. Was the lead character the detective who lost his wife, the photographer or the preacher at the soup kitchen. These three characters all had potential to the passion of the film, the character we CARED about, but in the end all three flopped quite badly. Now the detective was at times ok, but mostly he came off as very unbelievable and quite impotent as a detective. The photographer seemingly started out with importance but later just got lost in the fray of weak characters. The preacher at times was a bit strong but mostly he was over the top and stupid.Read more ›

Good movie, I got this as a part of a movie marathon for my friends and I. They both loved it! Which Im happy about, but personally it just didnt do it for me. The story was very good, very interesting indeed. Its actually almost mystery-like. But that doesnt make up for the movie's one massive flaw for me, wheres CHUD??? CHUD monsters make 2, maybe 3 appearances throughout the whole movie. And those are SHORT appearances, and I mean really short like 5 seconds each. I really wanted to see some CHUDs killing people but there was only one or two good CHUD scenes in the whole film, it was mostly story. 3/5, good story and one or two good CHUD scenes.
