A rash of bizarre murders in New York City seems to point to a group of grotesquely deformed vagrants living in the sewers. A courageous policeman, a photo journalist and his girlfriend, and a nutty bum, who seems to know a lot about the creatures, band together to try and determine what the creatures are and how to stop them.

Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 80โ€™s (1473 movies items)

" A recent article in a New York newspaper reported that there were large colonies of people living under the city... The paper was incorrect. What is living under the city is not human. C.H.U.D. is under the city. The title of the movie is an abbreviation that stands for Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers. C.H.U.D. is a 1984 American science fiction horror film directed by Douglas Cheek, produced by Andrew Bonime, and starring John Heard, Daniel Stern, and Christopher Curry in his fi"

Pros and Cons of Films: Vol. 1 (121 movies items)

"Pros: John Heard and Daniel Stern, and their earlier performances. The overall pro urban environmental measage. The music by David Hughes and Martin Copper Itโ€™s really not that bad of a film. New York City, and all of its 80โ€™s dark, grit, and slime. Con: The effects are cheesy as hell."

Movies That I Changed My Mind About (51 movies items)

"A movie that over a period of time, garnered a cult following, however credits hated it. However, itโ€™s better than it lets itself out to be. And I didnโ€™t know it at the time, but it was very first introduction to Daniel Stern and John Goodman."

31 Days of Horror (Halloween) 2018 (31 movies items)

" Date: 10/29/2018 Viewed: Blu-Ray Re-watch Note: I have a lot of nostalgia of seeing this movie as a kid back in the 90s. I still enjoy this movie even though it is not a great movie. I do find this movie to be a fun B movie from start to finish. The movie even has a fun cast of characters in my opinion. The CHUDs themselves are very cool looking and the movie has some pretty good special effects. I also love the dark and dirty feeling of the grubby areas of New York City that you have this "

QOH's October Movie Diary '18 (10 movies items)

"October 5thC.H.U.DFirst Viewing.I'm a huge fan of 80s horror. The cheesier the better. I am trying to watch as many 80s horror flicks that I haven't seen this month. This one wasn't as bad as I had thought. I could follow it and I wanted to stick around to see the outcome. Plus it was awesome seeing John Goodman in a cameo role!"

"LAST WATCHED: 7/10/2017I totally did not check out the cast list of this movie before I watched it, so imagine my surprise when I see, not one, but two future alumni from Home Alone. This was also the first movie I'd seen outside of the Home Alone franchise to feature Daniel Stern, so it was weird seeing him in a somewhat intelligent human being role, instead of a bumbling thief. Overall, I wasn't that impressed with this movie; the story was so silly and the characters were crazy."

"What stays underground, doesn't stay underground for long. Like toxic waste, and C.H.U.D.S. Also, we are responsible for the mess we make. Literally and figuratively speaking."
