C.H.U.D.

Date Watched: 6/17/2021

Starring: Dad from Home Alone, and one of the Wet Bandits

Plot: Homeless people that live in the sewers are disappearing, and something terrifying might be killing them. CHUDs!

Rules

  • References to the “underground”.
  • Homeless people
  • CHUD attack
  • References to radiation

Quotes

  • “It’s buck dancers choice, my friend.”
  • “We don’t have to listen to the lunatic ravings of this paranoid hippie.”

Viewer Quotes

  • “This guy’s wearing a full Canadian tuxedo.” – “What is that, scrubs?”

Things We Learned

  • In the 80’s, when a woman gets a call from the doctor, she’s pregnant.
  • You can intimidate people by eating their payphone change.
  • In the 80’s, going to the papers was the biggest threat of all. These days it means nothing.
  • New York apartments have access panels to the sewers.

Final Take: This was a decent Thursday movie. Definitely kept my attention, and the rules worked to keep a steady flow of beer going. There was a surprisingly strong cast involved in this one, and a plot involving corrupt politicians that still seems relevant. Not too shabby.
