Watched this one again.....I hadn't seen it since the early 90s.....I accidentally clicked on the first page of the "what's the last 90s movie you watched" thread....in it Jay Lee had brought up The People Under the Stairs and how it stared Kelly Jo Minter, Ali Langer and Ed and Nadine from Twin Peaks....that was all I needed to want to re watch it!

Really creepy.........and the one guy Roach from under the stairs kept making me think of the guy from The Burbs? lol

It's really a great campy, funny horror movie.......any fans? favorite parts?

Devolution here,

I always thought it was a vastly underappreciated movie due to it's uniqueness and concept. The kid with no tongue is great and has been in ton of movies since then in little parts like the annoying guy in "That Thing You Do".

It's a better movie when you are teen, but it's more than watchable now.

It´s a good movie.
Wes Craven was still rockin´ and rolling in the early 90s.

I remember that it got many pages in Fangoria magazine back in the day.

Devo and aTomik, as usual, I agree. I liked this back in the day, though I haven't seen it in a long time. I like a lot of Wes Craven's stuff, but he can do dreck too, like "Shocker." [Smile]

I like Shocker too, Crash.
If you watch it more as a comedy with horror elements, it will work.
Not vice versa [Cool]

i'm a big fan of both people under the stairs and shocker,i know wes craven made both of these in a 3 movie picture deal for production company alive films , the 3rd movie was the excellent the serpent and the rainbow and i felt all 3 delivered the goods.

the one wes craven movie i've never really took to was 2005's cursed starring christina ricci,turned out very disappointing!

That is Sean Whalen, who plays Roach.

I have never seen this, incidentally.

I used to watch this movie a lot when it first came out. It's been on netflix instant watch so I definitely need to check it out again.

I remember Roach as the annoying co worker in Never Been Kissed! ha

I definitely loved watching this one back in the day. Haven't seen in a good while so I'll have to revisit it to see if it still holds up for me.
