The People Under The Stairs (1991)

3.5 / 5

This is actually quite creative and entertaining as it should be to folks of most ages and backgrounds. The story is about a poor boy who tries to break into a home with some evil folks inside. There is a crazy tongueless boy in the walls and there is definitely something strange about the evil couple's "daughter" Alice. It's a highly unlikely scenario, but colorful characters and creativity keeps this afloat and it makes it interesting. Scary and gory it really isn't but it still pays off, only in comedic and bizarre ways. This isn't one you'll forget yet at the same time it could use a little more scare to be awesome.
