THE PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS | USA | 1991 | 102 minutes | Dir: Wes Craven | M
When Poindexter – known around the ‘hood as “Fool” – (Brandon Adams) breaks into a house, he finds himself trapped by its murderous owners (Everett McGill and Wendy Robie from Twin Peaks). Quickly learning the true nature of the home’s homicidal inhabitants, the boy battles against sadistic security devices, befriends an elusive and abused girl, and finally learns the secret of the creatures hidden deep within the house.
“Mr. Craven’s screenplay manages to evoke both Treasure Island and The Night of the Living Dead, and plays like a stroll through an amusement park’s haunted house. It is full of peculiar noises, floors and walls that suddenly give way, things that jump out of the dark and objects of unmentionable disgustingness that sneak up from behind.”—The New York Times
The cinematographer of the film, Sandi Sissel, will be present for a post-screening discussion.
