THE PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS (1991 U.S.) D/W: WES CRAVEN P: MARIANNE MADDELENA/STUART M. BESSER
A ghetto kid named Fool (Brandon Adams) goes with older Ving Rhames to break into a big old house owned by rich weirdo Everett McGill and his wife (the same performers were a couple on TWIN PEAKS at the time). The horrible, decadent, uncaring couple`s house is a completely illogical network of secret tunnels and traps as McGill chases intruders around with a shotgun while dressed in a rubber bondage suit. They also terrorise a teen girl (A.J. Langer) and keep tonguless slaves locked-up in a basement. Politicaly charged and cartoonish horror comedy from Craven somehow manages to be a very enjoyable mess. With Sean Whalen, Bill Cobbs and Nic Cramer.
