Hi Friends! This week we watched The People Under the Stairs from 1991. It’s Wes Craven so it definitely won’t be weird and have a guy dressed in a leather sex suit, right?? RIGHT?? Cheers!
Rotten Tomatoes Reviews
When young Fool (Brandon Adams) breaks into the home of his family’s greedy and uncaring landlords, he discovers a disturbing scenario where incestuous adult siblings have mutilated a number of boys and kept them imprisoned under stairs in their large, creepy house. As Fool attempts to flee before the psychopaths can catch him, he meets their daughter, Alice (A.J. Langer), who has been spared any extreme discipline by her deranged parents. Can Fool and Alice escape before it’s too late?
— The People Under the Stairs may be as misshapen as the people who live in this basement, but it might be as subversive too. – Henry Sheehan
— A pretense of social responsibility and most of the necessary tension get lost in a combination of excessive gore and over-the-top perfs in The People Under the Stairs. – Variety Staff
— There are a few push-button frights, but a total dearth of mind-disturbing terror; the humour, too, is broad, crowd-pleasing stuff. – Nigel Floyd
— Perhaps the most staggeringly incompetent movie in the director’s uneven canon. – Nick Schager
