The People Under The Stairs was written and directed by Wes Craven and it features Ving Rhames, Brandon Quentin Adams, Everett McGill and Wendy Robie. It was released right after Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare and before Craven's A New Nightmare. Most of Mr. Craven's movies after A Nightmare on Elm Street were never well-received with movies like Deadly Friend and Shocker.
