C.H.U.D. (1984) - Douglas Cheek

So its 2011 now... 2010 was a huge year for me with Horror Movie Project. Thanks to everyone who has visited and taken an interest in the site, and thanks to everyone who has linked to me. Thank you everyone on Rotten Tomatoes and Facebook for your cool support. Thank you Better Board. You guys rock.
So a good friend of mine suggested that we sit down and watch C.H.U.D. I had never heard of the movie before, so I agreed. We grabbed a couple beers and sat down to be entertained by the unknown.
The plot is pretty thin. There's an evil conglomerate that is dumping nuclear waste in the sewers of New York where a community of homeless people live. Naturally a few of the homeless mutated and became C.H.U.D.'s Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers.
I couldn't have guessed that I would turn this movie on and see actors like Daniel Stern and John Goodman making cameo appearances. I didn't know that I would be taken by the movie's comedy whether it be intentional or no…
