"Horror of the homeless"

Films: C.H.U.D (1984)

Alias: Canabalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers

Type: Mutant

Location: Underground/Civilized area

Height/Weight: That of average humans.

Affiliation: Neutral

Summary: Once again, the sewers are crawling with the mistakes of mutation. Only this time, there's no giant alligator. No, just an army of demonic-looking mutated hobos out for blood.

History: The underground pathways of New York harbor a dark secret. The NRC has been dumping copious amounts of nuclear waste (dubbed Contamination Hazard Urban Disposal) into the place. The side-effect was that the local homeless population came into contact with the stuff, and began to mutate into horrific monsters known as CHUD. After depriving the sewers of prey, the CHUD are now forced to assault the surface at night as the humans clash with one another to expose or keep the conspiracy secret.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: Many CHUD are killed, but the death knell for them is when the main conspirator gets killed and crashes a truck into their lair. With the conspiracy exposed, the CHUD are doomed.

Powers/Abilities: Can extend their necks for unspecified reasons.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 4.5-They may behave like your average zombie, but damn, are they not the most hideous renditions of an undead army?! Sharp fangs, fleshy skin, and glowing yellow eyes make these creatures the last thing you want barging down your doors.

Trivia: -There is no 1989 sequel known as "Bud the Chud". THERE. ISN'T. Don't even try to correct us.

-If you can believe it, these beasts could have looked worse. Early concept art shows more bestial-looking CHUD, a far cry from their (relatively) humanoid appearance.

Never planned on moving to New York anyway.

Dammit. They formed a theocracy.

"Urgh...stupid neck cramp!"
I swear, I'm blaming the Umbrella Corperation for the next incident!

"Sadly, by akwowledging this sequel, we enable it."
