This movie is a favorite in my family's household, sometimes watched multiple times in a day and quoted during dinner.
I am not entirely sure what it was about The People Under The Stairs that drew my brothers and I together around the television set, quoting and laughing with this movie. Perhaps it was the dry dark humor? Maybe it was the heartwarming elements? And then again, maybe it is because this movie is AWESOME.
Absolutely watch this one with friends. Preferably friends who enjoy Wes Craven.
