The People Under The Stairs

3

Should have picked a bungalow...

A pre-Pulp Fiction Ving Rhames and a resourceful kid (Brandon Adams) break into a house only to find themselves caught in a bobby-trapped hellhole with the sicko owners and a horde of imprisoned mutants.

As with A Nightmare On Elm Street, the story for TPUTS presented itself to Wes Craven in the form of a newspaper article.

It makes for an inventive, sometimes disturbing comedy-horror that, at its best, recalls the early splatsticks of Raimi and Jackson.

There’s even a socio-economic message, laid on thick like the make-up effects.
