The People Under The Stairs could be most notably the underrated film of Wes Craven’s career. Released back in 1991, a boy nicknamed, “Fool” (Brandon Adams) breaks into the home of some greedy landlords, the same landlords threatening to close down the projects his family lives in. It is discovered that these greedy landlords have kept boys imprisoned under the stairs in their large, creepy house. During his attempts to flee the property, “Fool” meets their daughter Alice, (A.J. Langer) who has over the years, suffered extreme abuse by her psychopathic parents. Now the question is, will they escape or meet their demise?
