intro and post-screening discussion by C.H.U.D. creature Carey Eidel

Douglas Cheek
John Heard, Daniel Stern

After a series of unexplained murders on the streets of New York City, clues suggest the existence of a dangerous life form living in the sewer—what comes to be called the Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dweller (C.H.U.D.). But, as can be expected from the classic 1980s horror film, the story isn’t as simple as it seems, and quickly begins to take unforeseen turns. The visionary special effects of John Caglione, Jr. make this film especially remarkable, and will be on full display in the non-theatrical extended edition print of the film that IIFFF will be screening.
