Hoff’s Horrorfest Presents: The People Under the Stairs!
April 26 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$5.00
On Friday, April 26th, host Hoff Matthews and co-producers Ian Goldstein (New York Magazine), Tim Barnes (Comedy Central) and Andrei Alupului (UCB) present the latest installment of this comedy show/horror movie screening series, interspersing their feature presentation with comedy bits, host segments and prize giveaways! This month’s feature selection: Wes Craven’s 1991 chiller The People Under the Stairs!
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. If Jordan Peele’s Us has whetted your appetite for socially relevant horror (or if Twin Peaks whetted your appetite for Wendy Robie and Everett McGill), this is a feast, and the Horrorfest crew will be there to unpack every sadly-still-relevant theme. 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!
