The idea of giant rats scurrying through the sewers of New York City might bring a shudder down some peoples' spines, but imagine if something else was lurking beneath the streets and sidewalks walked by millions every day. What if something was down there that was mutated like the friendly Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but instead of chowing down on pizza, it snacked on humans? In the 1984 horror film C.H.U.D, cannibalistic sewer creatures wreak havoc on the homeless, and artist Aaron Crawford  features one of these monsters in a new poster from Cavity Colors.

Sure to catch your eye with its six wide eyes, the Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dweller, or C.H.U.D., in Cavity Color's first ever 16X20 poster is printed with archival inks in a limited edition run of only 100.

Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dweller
or as I call it; "Cannibalistic Humanoid Underground Dripper"

C.H.U.D (1984)
"There are monsters lurking beneath the streets; beings that were once human, but have been mutated by radioactive, chemical toxic waste into hideous, flesh-eatingcreatures that prey on the homeless who live in the underground. Given the recent drop in the underground transient population, the creatures have resorted to coming to the surface of the city, through sewer manholes in order to feed on the living"

I've always wanted to do a proper tribute for this movie, and also giving the monster the respect it deserves by capturing the viciousness of what is known to lurk in the sewers! I watched this movie as a kid, and it never scared me, but I have always been fascinated by the idea of half human / half mutant monsters living under the streets, peaking through sewer drains, and snatching people down into their toxic world. THAT idea is terrifying. Who really know's what is living down there?!
