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

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 »
[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.

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
