Just got through the worst part of my schedule at work this week and decided to watch a movie which I recorded off of the "Encore Avenue" channel on TV earlier this month that I'd almost forgotten about called The People Under The Stairs from 1991. I believe this movie has already been mentioned in here recently. Anyway, for me, it is a first-time viewing. I have to admit that I fell asleep about 30 minutes into the movie just due to general tiredness and ended up re-starting it, but thankfully I had enough in me to get through it the second time around. This movie and the people under the stairs themselves were not quite what I was expecting, but film serves up a reasonably good mix of action and horror with a bit of comedy. I did have a laugh-out-loud moment when Leroy made a comment about the dog after his first encounter with it! Overall, not as good of a film as I'd hoped for but still not bad at all and I would give it 3 out of 5. It was good to have seen it but I doubt I will re-visit it again for a few years.
