WRITTEN BY: Wes Craven
STARRING: Brandon Quintin Adams, Everett McGill, Wendy Robie

A Part of Music Box of Horrors: Dawn of the Drive-In Presented by Shudder 

After exploring voodoo rituals, robotic best friends, and electrified serial killers, in 1991 Wes Craven returned to one of the scariest places on earth: the middle-class American neighborhood. The People Under The Stairs expertly subverts expectations, suggesting something truly terrifying lurking in the basement and revealing the true villain of the piece: landlords. One part Bad Ronald, one part Die Hard, People Under The Stairs is top-notch social satire from one of the transgressive masters of the genre.
