Aug 04, Only the cinematic era of the 50's could come up with a movie like this, a movie about actual mole humanoids or humanoid moles. As I've said before, within this decade they pretty much used every kind of insect and animal they could think of to besiege humanity. The movie starts off in a unique way by having a science and history lesson.

And by that I mean an actual Californian professor Dr. Frank Baxter talks and explains to the viewer about various old theories of a hollow Earth and how this movie is a fictional representation of those theories. Although I enjoyed this amusing little snippet from a stereotypical looking 's professor in his stereotypical 's looking study, it all seemed rather bizarre to me. What was the need for this? Did the audience back then really need confirmation that the movie was fantasy??
Did they need to have a professor talking about ancient hollow Earth theories? Then in terror he fled out! English professor? Who wrote this?? Its terrible geez! Any way the plot is what you might expect. Some archaeologists are digging around somewhere in Asia and discover ancient relics that are apparently Sumerian. One thing leads to another and before you know it they're up a mountain discovering a temple, then the ground opens up and some bloke falls down into a deep cave. He was a furniture salesman. The FBI is looking for him. He used to know Donald Trump. It doesn't matter which version is true.
His real story has been buried long ago under thick layers of improvised memories that grew more detailed by the years, the man slowly becoming a collage of himself. There's no hassle compared to the streets, you know what I'm saying? Here I don't get bugged by kids. It's a safe place. I can do what I wanna and I don't have to take nothing from nobody. It was a good day for Jon, despite the rain and the cool weather. I don't know, man. They're scared or something.
I can get why, it's a spooky place when you don't know it. But people, they like it when it's scary. They like it when it's dirty, right? It makes them feel alive. That's why they make up these stories about cannibalism and stuff. Like alligators in the sewers. Jon offers me a sip of vodka. We drink together. He tells me to stay safe and to watch out for trains when I go back walking into the tunnel. I hear him talk to himself as I go away from the entrance and from the white sky.
The smell down here is the one of brake dust and mold. I can see rats scouring for food and drinking from brown puddles in the tracks ballast. The city growls over my head — a distant growl muffled by the concrete, almost a snarl, like something cold and foul spreading over the long stretches of stained walls, like a dark and wild beast curling up around me and breathing on my neck. A dark and wild beast silently trailing me.
Stories about underground dwellers were already flourishing when the first New York City subway line opened in The expansion of extensive sewers and steam pipes systems had brought a newfound fascination with what laid below the streets. From Jules Verne's novel "Journey to the Center of the Earth" to George Gissing's book "The Nether World," literature was brimming with tales of people living in isolation or trapped under the surface, peaking in with "The Time Machine," in which H.
Wells described a fictional subterranean species called the "Morlocks. But it was only in the s that the first widespread depictions of real-world tunnel residents appeared in New York. A New York Times article by John Tierney was the earliest to outline the phenomenon, looking at people living in an abandoned train tunnel beneath Riverside Park, along the banks of the Hudson River.
Collective imagination took over quickly. In , Jennifer Toth published her essay " The Mole People ," documenting hidden communities residing in a network of forsaken caverns, holes and shafts across Manhattan. An instant hit, it chronicled the organization of those underground societies, describing compounds of several thousands where babies were born and regular lives were lived, with elected officials, hot water and even electricity.
However, the book was promptly criticized for its inconsistencies. Joseph Brennan, a New York rail buff, wrote an extensive and detailed critique in , exposing many discrepancies in Toth's reporting, such as places that couldn't exist, exaggerated numbers and contradictory claims. A article by Cecil Adams further demonstrated that many accounts were perhaps more sensationalism than truth. Adams pointed out unverifiable or incorrect facts in Toth's work, and her skepticism peaked during her interview of Cindy Fletcher, a former tunnel dweller who challenged important points of the narration.
I was unable to reach Toth for comment, but when Adams talked to her, the journalist said she couldn't remember how to access certain places described in her essay — possibly not to disclose the whereabouts of trespassing squatters. Still, while the essay might have been inflated or romanticized, it was nonetheless true that the homeless begging in the streets of New York were merely the tip of the iceberg.
Photojournalists Margaret Morton and Andrea Star Reese have both extensively documented communities spread in underground hideouts since Toth's book. Dutch anthropologist Teun Voeten's diary "Tunnel People" provided an incredible account of the months he spent with the Riverside Park Amtrak tunnel inhabitants before they were evicted and moved to Section 8 housing units. In , director Marc Singer released his acclaimed documentary " Dark Days ," filming the same people followed by Voeten and Toth in their respective books.
