Editorial Reviews

Jerry Blake (Terry O Quinn, Lost) is a man obsessed with having the perfect American Dream life: including the house with the white picket fence in the suburbs, an adoring wife and loving children. He believes he has found it when he marries Susan Maine and becomes the stepfather to her 16-year-old daughter, Stephanie. But Stephanie gets an uneasy feeling when she is around Jerry with his Father Knows Best attitude: she can see that there is a darker side behind his cheerful exterior. Could she just be going through the typical teenager rebellion against her new stepfather, or is he actually the same man who brutally murdered his family just one year earlier?

Bonus Features:

* Audio Commentary with director Joseph Ruben

* The Stepfather Chronicles:(HD) An all-new retrospective featuring interviews with cast and crew.

i couldn't be happier that this movie has finally found it's way to dvd. one of my all time favorites and what was becoming the "holy grail" of movies to find on dvd. the transfer looked good without any obvious "cleaning up" of the scenes for dvd. i wish there were a few more special features but i am happy they included "the stepfather cronicles" because i love hearing the behind the scenes workings of my favorites. terry o'quinn does an acting tour de force as jerry blake, the stepfather. he so completely inhabits the role that i am suprised and thankful that he was not type cast after this role.i read somewhere one time that his role as the stepfather was a cross between mr. rogers and mark harmon. i can see that. it may not be hamlet or macbeth but it is damn fine acting. jill shoelen is great as the daughter. i am so happy to hear that the dvd release may have brought her back to the conscience of producers and casting directors. this is a great movie that possibly gets a bad rap as "horror" or "slasher" neither of which it is. it is a great movie about one mans struggle to make his world the way he believes it should be and treating it, and everyone around him, like an "etch o sketch" when they inevitably disappoint him. he simply reinvents himself elsewhere and then cleans up the mess at home before embarking on to his new existence. do yourself a favor and watch this movie.

I'm pretty sure I'm with everyone else, on this page, when I say it's about time!
I'm a huge scarry movie fan, and I must admit, I'm a bit partial to the older films, than most of what comes out today.
That being said, If your seeking a real tale of fright, this is your movie. It's funny, everytime you get together with people & talk about scarry movies, "The Stepfather" is either always the last one mentioned, or not mentioned at all; and I can't, for the life of me, understand why.
It's an original story, not like other scarry movies where the storyline is being used for the 100th time. This movie has everything you could want in a horror film. It has the right elements of atmosphere, music,suspense, character development, and just the right amount of the red stuff . . . without going overboard! I haven't seen many films that actually bring these key elements together just right, and this one does it right. There are a couple of comical moments, as is usual, but for the most part, this film is dark, serious, and means business.
Maybe that's it, maybe it's to real for people to accept.
I promise,when watching this one, you will not be leaving in the middle of the film for extra soda & popcorn!

I Saw The Remake Trailer And Smiled

Why? Because I knew because of this we were finally gonna get the original Stepfather on DVD. This movie for me was one of those rare times I came home late put on cable an caught the opening scene without knowing what this movie was called or what it was about. Isn't that great when that happens? Your thinking what is this? Then he walked down those stairs passed the bodies and blood and out the door, I was glued to my TV from that moment on. This has been one of my favorites ever since. You know what else is wonderful about this movie, the cinematography,the look and feel of this picture. The neighborhood,the fall,the leaves,trees, the homes the street the lighting. I wish this were coming out on Blu Ray, hey maybe.

Till this day no matter how many times I've seen it I still get soooo humorously annoyed with JIM OGILVIE. He does this incredible job of tracking Jerry down. He knows the damn house he lives in now, walks in the door with his gun in his pocket lol and then is shocked to see him with blood on him.
What a boob! That and the sound of the phone hitting Shelly Hacks face still makes me cringe. Great writing, great directing, and wonderful acting,this film is scary yet so warm and inviting. You actually feel sorry for this lunatic. Must Have!

I can't recommend this movie enough. Terry O'Quinn's performance should rank amongst the best of all time in film. O'Quinn takes this role in what would be a good movie and takes it to another level. He makes it a masterpiece of any genre.

The Stepfather's only shortcomings are not doing more with the Jerry Blake character. He is so brilliant that you don't want the movie to end and it leaves you with a strong desire to see more of a backstory. The film does a good job of explaining what's going on which sets up its scenes effectively. However, it would've been awesome to see more of O'Quinn, instead of the plot just being set up by references.

Shout Factory does a solid job with the blu ray release. However, it does not appear to be remastered. It is pricey, but I felt it was a must for my collection. It also includes an interesting documentary on the making of the film.

All in all, I'd recommend this to anyone older than 16. The foul language is minimal. The violence is gruesome in spots, but not over the top, and it feels like just enough to effectively execute certain scenes. There is a very brief sex scene containing no nudity that I feel would be teen safe. However, there is a later scene of nudity that I definitely would not want my children or teen to see.
