YART - Rob Zombie to remake C.H.U.D.

http://www.dreadcentral.com/node/25294 UPDATE: Zombie to Redo C.H.U.D.!
Submitted by Johnny Butane on Wed, 11/07/2007 - 4:25pm.

Zombie on a C.H.U.D. remake?

UPDATE:

This just in! Spoke with Rob and he confirmed he WILL be helming the C.H.U.D. remake!


Now this would be just plain weird ... But kinda cool at the same time.

Billboard.com just posted an article about Rob Zombie’s upcoming projects, everything from a White Zombie box set to the special edition of Halloween, and made mention in passing that the rocker cum director is attached to a remake of C.H.U.D..

Whoa now, what? Why? I mean, the original is a classic in its own right and a remake sure wouldn’t hurt, but why would Zombie tackle it? Billboard didn’t get confirmation from Zombie if that is his next film or not, so we’ll put this one in the “rumors” box for now.

Keep checking back; we’ll give you more when we know it!


All I can say is....WHY?

I thought he said he'd never do a remake again. Fine with me though if he wants to remake it.

Makes perfect sense. I certainly know that when I think of great 80's horror movie ideas that are begging for a slick new remake, I think of.....something else.

He's been talking about the White Zombie boxset for so long it's not even funny.

Well C.H.U.D. certainly isn't the classic Halloween was, infact it wasn't even a good movie other that the basic premise.

Don't call it a remake. Simply say you're doing a horror movie with the same idea. Certainly don't call it C.H.U.D. for god's sake.

For a great take on a similar idea see Creep (2004)

Oh goody, I hope he makes the camera shake so much this time that the movie literally flies off the screen.

Unless this is good, Rob Zombie might just be a one-trick pony.

I don't like Rob Zombie movies at all and I don't get why people like them. That said, I don't mind remakes like others here do so it's no skin off my ass if they make one. I remember when CHUD came out but I never saw it and I still have no interest in seeing it.

He probably should just stick to The Devil's Rejects type films. That movie is incredible. Just go as far as possible with fucked up people. I think he can pull off many more great horror films, he just needs to create his own story.

Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers = C.H.U.D


Am I the only person that doesnt mind this is coming out?


I am against remakes... But of all features to put more money into I could think of about 3 dozen other titles that should be redone for a new generation of audiences.

What next, Citizen Kane? C.H.U.D. is a cinematic milestone in technical achievement. I fail to see where Zombie thinks he can improve upon a timeless masterpiece. Even The Simpsons recognize the merits of the film enough to occassionally sprinkle references throughout their episodes. Good luck to you sir!

Seriously, though, he could do an interesting take on it.

First 75 minutes will be dull "back story" on the CHUD's and how they came to be. Last 15 minutes will be an inept remake of the original film.
