WES CRAVEN'S CULT CLASSIC GETS A BEAUTIFUL NEW LEASE ON LIFE WITH SCREAM FACTORY'S NEW COLLECTOR'S EDITION BLU-RAY! AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE ON AUGUST 11TH!
THE PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS was one of the more bizarre movies I watched during my formative years, and I didn't quite care for it. Then I gave it a second chance many years later and loved the hell out of it!
Based loosely upon an actual news story of a Santa Monica couple that abused their children and kept them locked away in their home, Craven's film plays like a modern day urban fairytale.
Film Synopsis: A kid nick-named "Fool" (Brandon Quintin Adams) gets roped into robbing the home of a pair of cold-hearted landlords that are planning to boot his family out onto the street. But things are not as they seem, as he (and the two other burglars, led by Ving Rhames) soon discover that the (possibly incestuous) brother-sister duo (Everett McGill and Wendy Robie) are insane, and have dozens of children caged within the bowels of the house.
Trapped, with no hope of contacting help, "Fool" must rely on his own street smarts to outwit the two murderous psychopaths, and free the trapped "people under the stairs!"
