October Horror Movie Challenge - C.H.U.D. II: Bud the Chud (1989)

Synopsis: Teens unwittingly free the corpse of soldier turned into a zombie-like cannibal by secret government experiments with C.H.U.D. enzymes.

The Good: The basic premise is good, that's about it. The Bud the C.H.U.D. song made me laugh.

The Bad: I like cheesy horror comedies, but this one may be too cheesy for me. I think that's because it's an 80's bro comedy, with humorous zombies. The effects and dialogue are both really bad. The ending is ridiculous.

Final Thoughts: I loved the first film. It wasn't great, but it was fun. This one tries to be fun, but just doesn't do it for me. Also,  Robert Englund has an uncredited cameo as a guy in a trench coat with trick'r'treaters.
Bud the C.H.U.D.
Armor Class: 12                      Attack Damage: Bite 1d6-1
Hit Dice:                                Special: C.H.U.D.ism
Move: 12                                  Bonus: +3 to Hit, +2 to Damage
Attack: 1 per round                 Terror: 9    HDE: 5

Anyone bitten by someone with C.H.U.D.-ism must make a DC 15 Constitution check (or make an Infection Saving Throw if using Zombies!) or be infected. Reducing them to 0 HP will only temporarily incapacitate them.  The only way to defeat  Bud and others like him is to freeze them and then electrify them.

Also, for reasons unknown a called shot to the testicles will incapacitate a Bud and others like him for 1d6 rounds.
