The People Under the Stairs: Wes Craven film gets a 4K UHD release in May

Wes Craven’s 1991 film The People Under the Stairs will be getting a 4K UHD release from Scream Factory in May

About two and a half years have gone by since it was announced that Jordan Peele would be producing a remake of Wes Craven‘s 1991 film The People Under the Stairs (watch it HERE) – but while we wait to see if that announcement is going to lead anywhere, Scream Factory is set to give Craven’s film a 4K UHD release on May 23rd. Copies can be pre-ordered at THIS LINK!

Written and directed by Craven, The People Under the Stairs follows a young boy and two adult thieves who become trapped in a house belonging to a strange couple known as the Robesons after breaking in to steal their rare coin collection. They find a lot more than they bargained for waiting for them in the basement.

The film stars Brandon Adams, Everett McGill, Wendy Robie, A.J. Langer, Sean Whalen, Yan Birch, Kelly Jo Minter, and Ving Rhames.

Scream Factory’s 4K UHD release of The People Under the Stairs has the same bonus features as their earlier Blu-ray release of the film:

Are you a fan of The People Under the Stairs, and will you be buying the 4K UHD release of the film from Scream Factory? Let us know by leaving a comment below. I don’t have 4K capabilities, so these announcements don’t let me know about things I’ll be getting for myself. It’s just nice to know that these movies will be sticking around on formats that I haven’t even upgraded to.

While we’re talking about The People Under the Stairs, also let us know if you would like to see the Peele-produced remake go into production, or if you think this one should be left alone.
