Several people are hunted by a cruel serial killer who kills his victims in their dreams. When the survivors are trying to find the reason for being chosen, the murderer won't lose any chance to kill them as soon as they fall asleep.
The People Under the Stairs is the story of a young boy (Fool) from the ghetto and takes place on his 13th birthday. In an attempted burglary (along with two others) of the home of his family's evil landlords, he becomes trapped inside their large suburban house and discovers the secret of the "children" that the insane brother and sister have been "rearing" under the stairs.

Scenes from this movie are shown on the Twister Ride at Universal Studios Orlando. The Twister Ride at Universal Studios allows the guest to experience what it would be like to be in a real tornado or "Twister" which destroys a mock city street during the ride. On the Twister set there are various structures such as buildings, vehicles, and a gas station to include the Galaxy Drive-In theater set. As the Twister Ride unfolds, and before the set is torn apart by the simulated tornado conditions, the Galaxy Drive-In plays scenes from "The People Under the Stairs". An attendants managing the ride confirmed this information, and said they couldn't get the rights to show the other movies listed on the Galaxy Drive-In sign which are "A Night of Horror", "The Shinning", and "Psycho".

[Leroy is attempting to pry a door open with a crowbar to enter the house and find Spencer, who did not return after entering the house]
Listen Leroy, this breaking and entering might not be so smart. It's the first day of my thirteenth birthday... could be unlucky.
Thirteenth birthday is unlucky anyway. Too old to get tit, too young to get ass... fucked either way.

I don't know how I found out about this movie to be honest. I think I was just really bored one day and bought it at a video store. But, I'm glad I did.
The movie is both funny and creepy, and personally I couldn't stop watching. It was quite interesting.
Story is simple but actually quite complex at the same time (if that makes any sense). 3 burglars (2 gangsters and a kid) from the slums break into the house of the landlords of a big apartment building, and become trapped inside and face the horrors that await them.
The best performance was definitely Brandon Quintin Adams as Fool, the 13 year old boy who breaks into the house with the 2 other criminals, Leroy (an early but great performance by Ving Rhames) and Spenser (Jeremy Roberts). Everett McGill and Wendy Robie played a good, insane couple, Daddy and Mommy. And Sean Whalen was really good as Roach, the main child from the basement who lives in the walls.
With a good mix of comedy, horror, and great characters, traps, atmosphere, People Under the Stairs should be part of any Horro lover's collection.
