Check out the trailer for The Stairs and read more about the movie below.
Directed by Peter “Drago” Tiemann, The Stairs is a frightening tale about a group of hikers hunted by a sinister presence in the woods. Twenty years after the mysterious disappearance of an 11‐year‐old boy and his grandfather, a group of friends find themselves along the same trail, unaware of a long‐forgotten evil lurking just beyond the tree line. What started as a week‐long adventure with friends, quickly turns into a terrifying fight for survival as they come face to face with the thing that nightmares are made of.
Film festivals have been flipping for The Stairs. The movie has received great reception from horror fests around the world. It has been an Official Selection at 15 film festivals and has garnered 11 nominations and more than 22 wins. Accolades include Best Picture at Haunted House FearFest and the Audience Award for Best Picture at Nevermore Film Festival. Most recently, The Stairs won top honors at the combined 2020/2021 International Horror Hotel Film Festival, namely Best Director (Tiemann), Best Cinematography (Ryan Purcell), Best Actor (Korson), Best Sci‐Fi Feature, and Best Overall Film.
The Stairs co-stars John Schneider (The Dukes of Hazzard) and Academy Award-nominee Kathleen Quinlan (Apollo 13). Reviewing the film, Joseph Perry of Whenitwascool.com said: “The Stairs combines the otherworldly and monsters into one film, and creature-feature fans should find the practical effects makeup and creature suits impressive.”
