The People Under the Stairs

Directed by Wes Craven

Director Craven had been mixing politics with horror since his notorious 1972 debut The Last House on the Left, but he really let rip with this savage slice of Reagan-era urban Gothic.

After his family is evicted, streetwise teen Fool breaks in to the foreboding home of the husband-and-wife landlords responsible. There, in a house that Craven described as representing ‘the whole society of the United States’, Fool discovers a nightmare that gets more terrifying with each door he opens.
