Hoff’s Horrorfest Presents: THE PEOPLE UNDER THE STAIRS!

April 1, 2019



I’m excited to announce that our next Hoff’s Horrorfest screening will be Wes Craven’s The People Under the Stairs on Friday, April 26th! My co-producers will be Ian Goldstein (New York Magazine), Tim Barnes (Comedy Central) and Andrei Alupului (UCB), and as always we’ll be interspersing our feature presentation with comedy bits, host segments and prize giveaways!

Released about halfway between A Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream, The People Under the Stairs is an off-beat tale of desperate inner city residents discovering terrifying secrets in the seemingly idyllic suburban home of their landlords. Longtime Horrorfest followers may remember that I screened this movie on the old version of the show back in 2015, but I figured Jordan Peele’s Us may have whetted people’s appetites for socially relevant horror (or that the new Twin Peaks may have whetted appetites for Wendy Robie and Everett McGill). Besides, the new show format will allow us to unpack all of the movie’s sadly-still-relevant themes in a totally fresh way. It all goes down at Cantina Royal in Brooklyn (58 N 3rd St.) on April 26th! Doors at 7:30, show at 8:00. Tickets just $5! 18+! Come through and laugh until you scream!
