Beneath the streets of New York city, there are hundreds of miles of subterranean tunnels unfit for anything human, unauthorized for anything experimental and unlikely to come to the surface...until now. Something horrible is loose in the sewers of Manhattan, and the city’s homeless population has begun to mutate into ‘Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers.’ They are C.H.U.D. - hideous, hungry and headed for the streets! John Heard, Daniel Stern and Kim Greist star in this wildly original horror shocker, filmed on (and below) the streets of New York City where hundreds of tourists every year are still devoured by actual C.H.U.D.!

    This is a Classic horror throwback.

    By CMT Teenyman
    Definitely one of the 80s classics. If you are a B-horror fan, its a must see
  • Cult Classic

    CHUD is definitely worth watching if you love B-horror flicks. Mutants emerging from the sewers of NYC and eating people... does it get much better? Production and story are good enough. If you liked "Sleepaway Camp", "Puppet Master", or "Xtro"; check this out.

    Great movie. This is in the era horror movies were original.
  • No kidding, it really is good fun

    There IS a script and it's not bad! There is a story. There are actors you know (if you're old enough), and there's a self-aware comedic element to the whole thing that makes it campy fun. It's not gory by modern standards, and not at all sadistic. Step back in time, have some popcorn.
