Movie ‘The People Under The Stairs’ Releasing In 4k Ultra HD

The 4K Ultra HD Release of “The People Under the Stairs” is Scheduled

Wes Craven is arguably the most beloved director in the horror genre. Craven made a tonne of underrated horror films, even though he is best known for his work on the slasher classics A Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream. This contains the 1991 horror black comedy The People Under the Stairs. Now, Scream Factory will release the movie on 4K Blu-ray in April.

At the time of its release, The People Under the Stairs was a modern rendition of the creepy house in the spooky neighborhood that no child would dare to enter. In it, a young boy played by Brandon Quintin Adams breaks into the house of the shady landlord of his family, but when he finds the landlord holding children hostage under the stairs, he realizes he’s in for more than he bargained for. The movie, like Scream, was much ahead of its time since it was a sarcastic commentary on gentrification and America’s dysfunctional class system.

Even though Craven passed away in 2015, eight years ago, his films have never been more in demand. With the new films and the recent 4K releases of its first two installments, the Scream franchise has understandably been getting a lot of attention, but Craven was more than simply Ghostface.

His horror library is filled with frightful classics that are just now getting the acclaim they merit. In 2023, Red Eye and People Under the Stairs will be the second Craven films to be remastered in 4K. Only last year did Cursed receive its debut Blu-ray release.

Even though Scream and Elm Street are the director’s indisputable classics, People Under the Stairs has the same razor-sharp wit and intense atmosphere for which Craven was known. In addition, a distinguished cast, including Sean Whalen, Wendy Robie, A.J. Langer, Ving Rhames, and Everett McGill, were included in the film. This new 4K update will include all the bonus materials from the film’s original Blu-ray release from Scream Factory.

Included are making-of footage, a Making-Of movie, and two audio commentaries with Craven, Adams, Langer, Whalen, and Yan Birch. The cover art for the 4K version also incorporates the disturbing skull hanging above a dismal neighborhood from the film’s vintage poster.
