C.H.U.D. II: Bud the C.H.U.D. (1989) is a rough sequel, though there’s no indication that the C.H.U.D. in this one ever lived underground. So, I wonder, is he really a Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dweller? It’s definitely not the same beast either. This is totally a zombie, changing the city into more with a bite. It annoys me more than a little that they changed them because the creatures from the first were amazing.
There’s a lot more cheese in this chapter, too, with the teenage hijinx, but that actually made the movie better. Sadly, there just isn’t much to this movie otherwise. The madcap chase to find Bud has its moments but got a little old and could’ve been wrapped up sooner.
When it finally ends, it is left open for another sequel that I’m thankful never happened. I just couldn’t take more than that.
I can only give C.H.U.D. II: Bud the C.H.U.D. 2.5 out of 5 Stars.
