October Horror Movie Challenge - C.H.U.D. (1984)

Synopsis: While doing a piece the homeless population photographer George Cooper discovers that their population has been mysterious dwindling. He teams up with a reporter, a priest, and a police officer to uncover the government conspiracy surrounding the disappearances and the cause... cannibalistic humanoid underground dwellers.

The Good: C.H.U.D. is one of the perfect late night horror flicks. The creatures are memorable, as are many of the death scenes. The characters are interesting. In particular I like Daniel Stern as the Reverend.

The Bad: This is not high art. It's definitely B movie territory.

Final Thoughts:  If you've not seen C.H.U.D., do yourself a favor and watch it. Also, be on the lookout for John Goodman in the flick.

In Your Game: I've posted them before, but I'll post them again. Here are some C.H.U.D. states I came up with for World of Darkness.

Description: Cannabilistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers (C.H.U.D.'s for short)  are  horrifying monsters that were once human. Most are former vagrants that have been mutated by  toxic waste. This turned them into horrible, hideous, flesh-eating creatures. C.H.U.D.'S prefer to stay away from the light of the sun, but will venture to the surface when food is scarce.

Radioactive: Because of the C.H.U.D.'s radioactive nature, bite wounds inflicted by the C.H.U.D. are considered aggravated. At the Storyteller's discretion any mortal that takes damage from a C.H.U.D. may mutate into one of the creatures.
