C.H.U.D. II Bud the CHUD
there are very few redeemable qualities of "C.H.U.D II: Bud the C.H.U.D" in fact I'm really struggling to find anything good about it? The best thing is it had a typical 80's theme song here's an acoustic rendition of it. but it had pretty much nothing going on....like at all.
The movie is about 3 teens, a lay about, a girl, and the smart one, in order their names are Steve Williams, Katie, and Kevin. Steve is the only one who has a last name. they're in a biology class together, and Steve gets him and kevin a detention by starting a fire, the day before they were gonna dissect a body! For detention Kevin and Steve have to do something with frogs in a biology lab, at this point Kevin knocks a dead body down the highway....I guess. Literally he bumps it says "ow" they uncover it and it more or less shoots out of the room. Figuring the teacher is A) smart enough to realize his corpse is missing and B) To stupid to realize that the corpse that will be on the news at some point is his corpse that he planned on dissecting the next day, they decide to go steal a corpse from the CDC. BTW, the CDC has awful awful awful security, and of all places to steal a body from, you're going to take one from the CENTER FOR DISEASE CONTROL! At the center for disease control they're holding bud, bud is a chud, chuds are government created zombie warriors. Magically, I say magically because the movie never shows how these two actually get in to this room, Kevin and Steve are transported to the room holding Bud in all his Chuddyness. Currently Bud is frozen due to events that I skipped earlier because quite frankly they were less interesting than what I'm talking about RIGHT NOW. So Steve and Kevin take this Chudsicle back to Kevin's place and place him in a bubble bath. Which probably made sense to the writer when he wrote it, and then he watched his film later and was like "why did I put bud in that bubble bath again?" and he wouldn't be able to answer that question for you because no writer is just gonna come out and say "yeah I was just to lazy to think of anything else." Steve also drops a hair dryer he was holding, for some reason, in to the bath tub which revives bud. Bud then goes on a rampage through the small town of.....something...I know they said it I just didn't write it down. The zombie plague spreads, good times are had.....by few.
I'm trying really really hard to list one thing I liked about this movie! ONE THING! and it's been really difficult. The fact that I found an acoustic version of the theme on youtube I liked? Although, that's not exactly related to the movie? I will say of the movies they're remaking why not take a stab at something like this? You have a bar set so incredibly low that you absolutely HAVE to succeed in making something better! Holy crap they're talking about it!
