C.H.U.D. is a 1984 science fiction horror film produced by Andrew Bonime, and directed by Douglas Cheek. The cast includes Daniel Stern and John Heard and features early appearances by both John Goodman and Jay Thomas as police officers. The plot concerns a New York City police officer and a homeless shelter manager who join forces to investigate a series of disappearances, and discover the missing are being taken by humanoid monsters that live below the city. C.H.U.D. is an acronym for Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dweller. However, the alternative acronym Contamination Hazard Urban Disposal was mentioned in the film.
The film opens with Flora Bosch walking her dog down an empty, darkened city street. As she passes by a manhole, she is attacked by a creature, and the dog is pulled in after her.
I cannot promise you that this same eerie scene would never unfold here. I didn't see any manhole covers on my way to ground zero (or should I say below ground zero) or any humanoid monsters lurking about but then I did visit this place during daylight. Who knows what happens after the sun goes down??
