Blu-Ray Review: C.H.U.D. II: Bud The Chud (Vestron Video Collector’s Series)

C.H.U.D II: Bud The Chud
Blu-ray (Vestron Video Collector’s Series)
Director: David K. Irving
Screenwriter: Ed Naha (as M. Kane Jeeves)
Cast: Brian Robbins, Tricia Leigh Fisher, Bianca Jagger, Gerrit Graham, Robert Vaughn, Priscilla Pointer
Distributor: Lionsgate
Rated | 84 Minutes
Release Date: November 22, 2016

Written by Ed Naha (Troll, Dolls) and directed by David K. Irving (Good-bye Cruel World), C.H.U.D II: Bud The Chud is a sequel to 1984’s C.H.U.D., Douglas Cheek’s cult flick about “Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers.”

If you’re worried you won’t be able to follow the complex storyline of C.H.U.D II: Bud The Chud without watching the original first, rest easy – the 1989 direct-to-VHS sequel has little to do with its predecessor. Doctor Berlin (Priscilla Pointer, of Carrie and A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors) and Colonel Masters (Robert Vaughn) are experimenting with enzymes taken from the sewer-dwelling creatures from C.H.U.D. to turn flesh-and-blood soldiers into unstoppable killing machines.

Director: Jim Wynorski
Screenwriter: Jim Wynorski, Steve Mitchell
Cast: Kelli Maroney, Tony O’Dell, John Terlesky, Russell Todd, Karrie Emerson, Barbara Crampton, Paul Bartel, Mary Woronov, Dick Miller
Distributor: Lionsgate
Rated R | 95 Minutes
Release Date: September 27, 2016

“Where shopping can cost you an arm and a leg.”

Exploitation filmmaker Jim Wynorski has given us so many classic films. The Return of Swamp Thing, Scream Queen Hot Tub Party, 976-Evil II, Ghoulies IV, Sorceress, The Bare Wench Project, The Witches of Breastwick, Sharkansas Women’s Prison Massacre – the list goes on and on. Of the 100+ movies the writer-director has made, however, his finest accomplishment is 1986’s Chopping Mall.

Starring Kelli Maroney (Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Night of the Comet) and Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator, From Beyond), Chopping Mall is the epic story of eight teenagers trapped in a state-of-the-art shopping mall, pursued by homicidal security droids, also known as Killbots. As the robots pick off the frisky teenagers with their high-powered lasers, the survivors break into a sporting goods store (“Peckinpah’s”) to secure weapons. Armed with rifles, propane tanks, and golf carts, the denim-clad kids wage war on the murder-bots with Park Plaza Mall serving as their battlefield.

Blood Diner Vestron Video Classics Blu-ray Review

Blood Diner

Cast: Rick Burks, Carl Crew, Roger Dauer, LaNette LaFrance, Lisa Guggenheim, Tanya Papanicolas, Drew Godderis
Distributor: Lionsgate
Unrated | 88 Minutes
Release Date: September 27, 2016

“Warning! The truly unusual motion picture you are about to see contains many scenes of graphic violence. It is not intended for the faint of heart nor the young and impressionable. While it is a sad fact that mass homicide and practitioners of blood cults infest our society, the producers of this film wish to express that they do not condone, nor do they want to inspire, any of the human butchery or violence portrayed in this film. If you feel you will be offended by such material, please leave the theater at once. Note: All of the mutilations, bodily dismemberments, and cannibal rituals were performed by seasoned professionals. Please do not attempt any of these stunts at home. Thank you.”

Directed by female exploitation filmmaker Jackie Kong (Night Patrol) and written by Michael Sonye (Mengele from Troma’s Surf Nazis Must Die), Blood Diner is one of the craziest damn movies you’ll ever see – and now it’s available on Blu-ray, transferred from the original film elements, thanks to Lionsgate’s Vestron Video Collector’s Series.
