The People Under the Stairs is a 1991 American horror film written and directed by Wes Craven and starring Brandon Adams, Everett McGill, Wendy Robie, A. J. Langer, Ving Rhames and Sean Whalen.
Poindexter Williams, known as "Fool", is a resident of a Los Angeles ghetto. He and his family are being evicted from their apartment by their landlords, the Robesons. Leroy, a professional criminal, suggests to Fool that they rob the Robeson's residence for money. The Robesons, who refer to themselves as "Mommy" and "Daddy," live in a large home with their daughter, Alice, and their ruthless trained-to-kill dog, Prince.
Leroy, his associate Spenser, and Fool sneak into the Robeson's household by using Spenser to pose as a municipal worker. The Robesons leave the home shortly but Spenser doesn't return. Fool and Leroy, break into the house to find Spencer, and find his dead body and a large group of strange pale children in a locked pen in a dungeon-like basement.
The Robesons return and Fool flees while Leroy is shot to death by Daddy. Fool runs into another section of the house, where he meets Alice. She tells him that the people under the stairs were children who broke the "see/hear/speak no evil" rules of the Robesons. The children have degenerated into cannibalism to survive and Alice has avoided this fate by obeying the rules without question. A boy named Roach whose tongue was removed also evades the Robesons by hiding in the walls.
Two adults and a juvenile burglar break into a house occupied by a brother and sister and their stolen children and can't escape.
