"The Next morning, while they were eating, Harold stood up and walked out of the hut. He climbed up on the roof and trotted back and forth, like a horse on its hind legs. All day and all night, he trotted like that. In the morning Harold climbed down and stood in a far corner of the pasture. The men had no idea what he would do next. They were afraid."
I listened to the commentary on the DVD and am amazed at how little of this movie is actually the vision that was intended. I got no other impression than that the director was in no way happy with it or proud of it. Either way, this film holds a fond place in my heart. Being a child in the video store in the 1980s was such an experience. How many movies were rented based upon box art alone, which rarely represented the film itself. This movie, like many others I remember from my childhood, holds most of it's enjoyment based on nostalgia alone. There was something about Horror movies in the 80's. Yes, complaints run rampant on these boards about the lack of quality in horror today but in revisiting so many of these "classics" from my youth I realize that the crap far outnumbered the quality....How our memories deceive us...
I finally saw this and I wasn't that impressed though I did enjoyed it and creatures looked really good. I dunno if I missed something but the film at the end seemed rushed and had no solution. WTF happened!?
this is a great classic movie, I love this movie, the creature looks awesome an just really love how it all plays out,a really great movie an well worth a few watches for me! an Fright-Rags has an awesome shirt for the movie too!
"C.H.U.D"..........Damn good monster movie from the 80's. Solid screenplay,great location shots of New York, and a wonderful music score that is filled with nerve jolting suspense. Good direction,nice special effects/makeup effects,great suspense filled atmosphere, and a strong cast. The 3 main lead actors(John Heard,Chris Curry, and Daniel Stern) were all top notch.
