— ABOUT THE FILMS:
THE PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS (1991)
Written + Directed by Wes Craven
Starring: Brandon Adams, Everett McGill, Wendy Robie + A. J. Langer
Plot: When young Fool (Brandon Adams) breaks into the home of his family's greedy and uncaring landlords, he discovers a disturbing scenario where incestuous adult siblings have mutilated a number of boys and kept them imprisoned under stairs in their large, creepy house. As Fool attempts to flee before the psychopaths can catch him, he meets their daughter, Alice (A.J. Langer), who has been spared any extreme discipline by her deranged parents. Can Fool and Alice escape before it's too late?
Running Time: 1 hr 42 min

GET OUT (2017)
Written + Directed by: Jordan Peele
Starring: Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Bradley Whitford
Caleb Landry Jones, Stephen Root, Catherine Keener, + Lakeith Stanfield
Plot: Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean. At first, Chris reads the family's overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter's interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he never could have imagined.
Running Time: 1 hr 44 min
