When Roach writes "ALICE" in the white wall, in the first shot he writes it neatly. In the next shot the writing is very messy, then neat again in the next shot. See more »

He doesn't talk much, does he?
His tongue's cut out.

Mommy caught him trying to call for help one day, and Daddy had to teach him to...
Speak no evil, right?
Your father's one sick mother, you know that? Actually, your mother's one sick mother, too!

I found The People Under The Stairs very entertaining as it combines comedy with suspense. The Mum and Dad character were really creepy but provided the most laughs in the movie which is kind of odd in a way. The kid (who is kind of annoying) is similar to Macauley Culkin's character in Home Alone and the Ma and Pa characters are similar to the burglars from Home Alone too but instead of the bad guys invading the good guys house the good guys are invading the bad guys house. The house is cool as heck with loads of secret passages and gizmos, it's a child's dream play house! It has thrills, suspense, laughs and gore! There is not much bad to say against it but don't go in to this thinking it's a horror movie because it isn't. A darned good flick! 9/10
