THE PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS is more of a Comedy Thriller than a Horror there's only couple scenes of Blood and Gore so most of the film is a Thriller with some comedic scenes in it mainly with Everett McGill that plays the brother in the film acts like a clown most of the time whereis the sister played by Wendy robie is very Deranged and Psychotic sister the film is set in suburban L.A. Wes craven's best film ever is A NIGHTMARE ON ELM ST but this film PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS is somewhere on his list as one of his best you either like it or you don't like it if you want the plot go to wikipedia.com.
