October 27th, 2014: C.H.U.D. (1984)

Cast and Crew:   Daniel Stern, Kim Greist, John Goodman, Jay Thomas, Frankie Faison, Jon Polito

What It’s About: Something is living under New York and committing a series of murders.  Can freelance photographer George Cooper (John Heard) get to the bottom of things before the entire city is eaten?

Why Watch it Today?:  New York’s subway system opened on this date in 1904.

The trailer, which so badly traumatized me as a child that I was terrified to step on subway grates and manhole covers when I visited NY.
