This movie has never scared me, even at four years old. It is very difficult to find a flaw in this movie but I may suggest a aftermath to the movie. This movie had mystery, scary scenes, funny scenes, dramatic scenes,... Full review

I thought this movie was okay. The story was unique for a horror flick. An idea taken from the news, psycho parents lock kids in house, except these trapped kids turn into semi deformed monsters. Scary concept especially if your a... Full review

Wes Craven does it again! Horrific, yet realisitic storyline, great visuals that really show the true essence of violence. The acting could be better, but that is only one flaw out of many positive things. A movie to remember... Full review

The social commentary is powerful stuff, and quite refreshing to find in an otherwise straightforward horror picture.....Things like suddenly crawling across a roof in one of the most ridiculous scenes ever conceived....There are many moments where Craven inserts some silly sequences to try and lighten the mood.....Craven wrote the screenplay for this film.....Some moments are disturbing.... ...

DVD Talk
There isn't much humor to be had in The People Under the Stairs , but the few jokes in the film feel as if they are aimed squarely at a 13 year old audience. The stereo effects on the track are very well-defined, and there is bass effects are handled nicely, but the surround effects are basically non-existent. ... Full Review

While no ones likely to champion The People Under the Stairs as Wes Cravens greatest film, this is arguably the best of his lesser efforts. The People Under the Stairs is nowhere near as good as either of those filmsbut it is a lot better, and deeper, than youd expect a mainstream horror film to be. ... Full Review

Urban Cinefile
The People Under The Stairs is driven by similar thematic concerns but is too reliant on comic relief and heavy-handed metaphors to succeed as the political horror film its creator intended. This is far from Craven's finest hour but a rental is worth it to satisfy your curiosity. ... Full Review
