366 Days at the Drive-In: Day 27
The Date: October
The Movie:C.H.U.D. (1984)
What Is It?: Despite its punch-line reputation C.H.U.D. is actually a pretty serious, even dry,
monster movie about nuclear mutants with a fairly sympathetic attitude
toward New York’s homeless population. The C.H.U.D.s look ridiculous,
but they have very little screen time. Daniel Stern is good as a homeless guy bent on stopping the
C.H.U.D.s from chudding the shit out of Manhattan.
Why Today?: On
this day in 1904, the first NYC subway line opens.
