RMG 309 – C.H.U.D. (1984)

March 8, 2023

On this episode, the Retro Movie Geek crew is joined by “Barely Ashley” Pinkard (check out more from Ashley HERE), and they’re geeking out over C.H.U.D. (1984) and

  • smelly people being nasty
  • social commentary
  • the cast
  • how the movie is weirdly enjoyable
  • and much, much more!


In the dank, putrid labyrinth of tunnels beneath the streets of New York City, a hideous transformation is taking place. An underground, ragtag colony of homeless derelicts is turning into C.H.U.D. – Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers, who ooze up from their hellish depths after dark for the only food that satisfies their hunger – human flesh!!

John Heard and Daniel Stern accidently learn of the government’s covert subterranean dumping site of radioactive waste that is mutating the underground vagrants. Together with a Manhattan police captain, they attempt to unravel the government cover-up and to stop the carnivorous slaughter.

But they haven’t got much time. Soon it will be dark on the streets of the city. Soon it will be feeding time.
