not a lot of people know about this movie, but its good. About acouple dudes break into a house to steal stuff to sell to get money for the kinds moms operation. little do they know, the owners of the house is crazy. they have a bunch of deformed retard guys in the basement, and they have a daughter who they keep locked in her room. the bulk of the movie is trying to escape the house as the crazy parents. I

recommend this movie for avid movie lovers.

Great movie. It stars Brandon Adams as Fool who you may remember from films like "The Sandlot" and "The Mighty Ducks". This one was quite a bit different than his usual roles.

Not to mention Ving Rhames as Leroy , Sean Whalen as Roach, and Everett McGill as the psycho father. You may remember him as the villain in Under Seige 2.

I have this one on dvd and love it. Such a unique story. A girl locked in the attic, boys locked downstairs, and an innocent black kid trapped in between hunted by two psycho parents and their dog. I think it is one of Wes Craven's finest.

I thought this move was very frightning when i was younger.. the hole thing with dead people liveing under you and not to mention 2 crazy ass rednecks that are very mental and kidnaped some young girl if i can remember rite. Anyways as the movie went on it was entertaining and i enjoyed it. Evan though the Husband and Wife were more sychotic then the people under the stairs..

i agree with everyone. This was an amazing movie that i used to watch all the time when i was younger. I also have this one on dvd. I dont't think that the kids under the stairs were retarded or dead. The best I can remember they were kids that had tried to get in the house before. For some reason i had forgot about this film even though I own it. i might have to pop it in here in a day or two and watch it again it's been awhile. Thanks for the memories.

You know hollywood is out of ideas, While i do not know how you wouls do a sequal, I agree a prequal might actually happen. Where there is awill there is away to screw up a classic. LOL
