The People Under the Stairs (1991)

Directed by horror legend Wes Craven, this classic follows Fool, a young boy from the ghetto who seeks revenge on his slumlord after his family is evicted. When he breaks into the slumlord's house, he finds way more than he was prepared to deal with. Scary, funny and an instant cult hit that brought in over $30 million worldwide.
