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.

- Ugly. Slobbering. Ferocious. Carnivorous.
- They're not staying down there, anymore!
- You Won't Want To Know What It Means.
- 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.
- Mrs. Monroe: Cooper, you son of a bitch. I'm in jail. I only get one phone call. You think I wanna waste it talking to some goddamn fucking machine?
Captain Bosch: Are you kidding? Your guy's got a camera. Mine's got a flamethrower.
A.J. 'The Reverend' Shepherd: You Cooper? George Cooper: Yeah. A.J. 'The Reverend' Shepherd: You all right? George Cooper: Who are you? A.J. 'The Reverend' Shepherd: I run the soup kitchen. George Cooper: On Kenmann. A.J. 'The Reverend' Shepherd: Right... right. This is crazy. C'mon. George Cooper: Thank God they deliver.
A.J. 'The Reverend' Shepherd: What are you trying to hide?... You saw it. You saw the monster! Wilson: Is that what you're going to tell the papers? That you're afraid of monsters? A.J. 'The Reverend' Shepherd: That's exactly what I'm gonna tell them if you don't fill me in.
[the police are returning Mrs. Monroe's bags after interrogation] Mrs. Monroe: How do I know you didn't take anything? Officer Crespi: How do I know you didn't give us anything?
- "C.H.U.D." is an acronym for "Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dweller", but it also means "Contamination Hazard Urban Disposal", as one can (barely) read on the crates full of toxic materials.
Robert Englund was set to star in the film as Daniel Stern's character but had to drop out due to filming on another sequel on the "A Nightmare On Elm Street" movie series.
Jay Thomas' movie debut.
