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.Written by
The People Under The Stairs is another Wes Craven movie that does not get the respect it deserves. it's a very strange movie and thats what i liked about it. it was pretty suspenseful but not really scary. Wes Craven made his first film in 1972 and he finally got his respect in 1996 with Scream, the only movie prior to Scream where Wes Craven gets his respect is Nightmare On Elm street but he has made many great films i give The People Under The Stairs 8/10
