A bizarre series of sudden disappearances on the streets of New York City seems to point toward something unsavory living in the sewers.
In issue 32 of Fangoria, producer Andrew Bonime referred to the film as "an expensive looking film and an expensive concept...It's a high quality kind of picture"
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?

When A.J. 'The Reverend' Shepherd is locked in the sewer by that mysterious stranger, a crew member can be seen in his glasses.
In the Anchor Bay uncut release, they omitted a line in the telephone booth scene after the grandfather is killed, leaving the little girl behind. The original line was a relative on the other end saying, "Jesus, Fred! What have you've been eating Mexican food, again?"
