It’s 1984, peak of the VHS monster-movie boom and C.H.U.D. has just hit my local video store. The film was a standout in a time of the straight to video monster flicks. With lead actors like John Heard, Daniel Stern and Kim Greist, as well as cameos from John Goodman and Jay Thomas (not to mention the C.H.U.D. vocal talents of Kevin Haney), it became a legitimate cult classic of the highest order.
