Synopsis


The Stepfather
Terry O'Quinn plays The Stepfather in this intelligent, unsettling chiller. We'd tell you O'Quinn's character name, but he has so many. You see, O'Quinn has been a stepfather many times over, romancing and marrying widowed women in several different states. After each wedding, everything is blissful -- at least, until O'Quinn's new wife and kids fail to measure up to his notions of perfection. Then he kills them en masse, and moves on to his next victims. Shelley Hack and Jill Schoelen co-star as O'Quinn's latest wife and stepdaughter, who prove to be yet another disappointment to him. An adroit witches' blend of Ozzie & Harriet and Psycho, The Stepfather was scripted by suspense veteran Donald E. Westlake. A lesser sequel, Stepfather 2, followed in 1989. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    Terry O'quinn can play a creepy charecter, he proved that with this horror classic, the whole cast does a nice job, Joe Ruben, well known now for suspense thriller classics like Sleeping w/the Enemy, and one of my personal favorites-the Good Son. With this film, Terry can go from family man to psychotic in a split second, very convincing in both traits. My only suggestion is watch this before you see the remake, and try not to compare the two, although I know it's hard not to do that, with most remakes/sequels.

    A fine fine fine 1987 film that has taken SO LONG to get on DVD. Not a gore film by any means but this is TOP NOTCH SUSPENSE and a real life storyline that delivers that goods!

    This is another good 80s horror movie that was remade recently but the original holds up.
