The People Under the Stairs

The People Under the Stairs ★★★½

It's really weird that I'm sure I must have watched this back in the day, but watching it now it came as sort of a surprise, as I wasn't expecting anything like this, and by "this" I mean a film that's a lot more wacky than a proper horror flick. That said, I had a blast watching it, and what a surprise to see Twin Peaks' Ed and Nadine teaming up again here as the baddies of the story. Despite going for a more comedic vibe à la Evil Dead 2, it does still have some creepy moments (just the idea of people living within the walls of a house, and locked under the stairs). I can't remember what kind of reception this got when it was originally released, but it sure makes for a fun watch now.
