CHUD Remake For Rob Zombie
Rob Zombie was so successful remaking Halloween that heís decided to make a habit out of redoing old horror movies. Dread Central reports that heís set his sites on C.H.U.D., the old cult horror flick, not the awful place which shall not be named but could definitely use a remake, and maybe a good ctrl + alt + delete while theyíre at it.
C.H.U.D. the 1984 movie was about deformed sewer vagrants being fought by a ill-fitting group of heroes. The filmís incredibly camp, and itís complete cheesiness is probably at least part of why itís maintained marginal cult popularity. I guess what Iím saying here is that people think itís awesome because itís corny. So, how the heck do you remake that? Or maybe Iím wrong and itís just awesome. One chuckle-wrothy post left on IMDBís boards describes it as, ďCHUD is the best of the 80's things in the sewer movies.Ē The competition in the things in a sewer movie genre is pretty stiff.
Is Rob Zombie going to set out to intentionally make silly, goofy, horror movie? That sounds like disaster, since that kind of camp is really only good when itís on accident. Rob Zombie, whatever his flaws, is no Ed Wood. Will he try to turn C.H.U.D. into a modernly updated, seriously hardcore horror movie? Alright, then why would anyone want to see it, since the whole reason itís beloved is because it sucks? Itís a confusing project, but apparently Rob is really doing it. What, you thought his next movie would be a rom-com?
