Movie With Monster Hidden In Crate Under Stairs?

I can remember an early to mid 1970's made for TV movie about a large wooden crate that was sitting under a stairwell in a school(?) They would show a closeup of the crate and you could see evil looking eyes peering through the cracks in it. Eventually it somehow breaks out and starts killing students. That's all I can remember. Anyone know the name of it. It was probably a low budget film.

It sounds a little like Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, but there were no students being killed.

That sounds like the episode "The Crate" from the original CREEPSHOW (1982) ... see https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0083767/reference/

I believe it's and episode from Creep Show and a Prof feeds his wife to the monster in the crate because she's such a nag.
