C.H.U.D. Receives the Arrow Video Blu-Ray Treatment in the U.S.

The cult horror classic C.H.U.D. will finally get a release on Blu-Ray from Arrow Video in November, which will be an exclusive to the U.S. special edition. As previously reported, the Vestron Video brand will also be releasing CH.U.D. II: Bud the Chud on Blu-Ray soon, so it makes sense to pick them both up to complete the set. The original C.H.U.D. was released in 1984 and was directed by Douglas Cheek, which has now become a fan favourite. You can check out the full details below along with the cover art.

C.H.U.D.

“THEY RE NOT STAYING DOWN THERE, ANYMORE!

From the subterranean depths it crawls! Finally making its long-awaited debut on Blu-ray, director Douglas Cheek’s cult 80s favorite C.H.U.D. is the ultimate underground movie experience.

In downtown Manhattan, a police captain’s hunt for his missing wife leads to the discovery of a series of mysterious disappearances in the area. Extending his search into the tunnels and sewers below the city streets, it soon becomes clear that something monstrous is lurking in that subterranean world and it won’t stay there much longer…

Starring John Heard (Home Alone) and Christopher Curry (Starship Troopers) alongside an early appearance from John Goodman, C.H.U.D. has justifiably built up a huge cult following in the years since its release in 1984, with one of the most iconic creature designs of the period.”
