Brandon Adams in The People Under the Stairs

Directed by horror master Wes Craven, this 1991 film follows Fool (Adams) as he attempts to rob his menacing landlords who plan to throw him and his family out of their home. What he discovers in the landlords' house is more than he bargained for, and a routine burglary turns into the discovery of gruesome murders, torture and incest. Fool manages to take down the evildoers, free their victims and spread their wealth to everyone in the ghetto in one fell swoop.
