Product Description

Tonight, Daddy's Coming Home To Slice Up More Than Just The Cake...

After a daring escape from a psychiatric hospital, the Stepfather (Terry O'Quinn, TVs LOST) assumes a new identity and sets out in search of a new family to marry into... and kill!

He finds the perfect victims: attractive and recently divorced Carol Greyland (Meg Foster, THEY LIVE) and her son Todd (Jonathan Brandis, HART'S WAR). Posing as a caring family therapist named Gene, he appears to be the ideal second husband and father for these two lonely people. But Carol's best friend Matty (Caroline Williams, Rob Zombie's H2) suspects that Gene is too good to be true. When Carol's first husband returns to attempt a reconciliation, he triggers Gene's fear of discovery, sending him on a violent, bloody killing spree. Eliminating everyone who stands in his way, Gene turns his wedding to Carol into one of the most horrifying and gruesome sequences ever filmed!

I actually enjoy Stepfather 2 more than the first Stepfather movie. The haunting theme does a lot for creating a truly sinister atmosphere. Rarely does a film score stick in my head, but this one does. And then there's Terry O'Quinn who plays the character just right.
You have to remember that this film was basically made in only 4 months. That's writing the script, casting, shooting, post production, etc. It was made for about 1 and a half million dollars and originally was supposed to be a direct to video release. Some additional shots were added and changed when the studio decided it was going to run a theatrical release like the first Stepfather, and they needed a more violent "Horror Movie".
The DVD release presents the film in it's original Widescreen format, and it's a very sharp Animorphic transfer. A great thing included on the disc is that it has many alternate and extended scenes that were from the original Director's cut. There is also a short still gallery, and a very interesting full-length commentary by the Director and Producer of Stepfather 2. The only thing missing is a theatrical trailer...albeit most Buena Vista DVD's lack a trailer so it's no big surprise there.
If you like this film then you need this DVD, it easily blows away the old VHS and Laserdisc editions. Now, if only they'd release the 1st Stepfather movie on DVD!!!

Isn't about time they gave us a series of films about a malevolent stepfather? You just knew this would happen eventually what with the bad reputation stepfathers have in American culture. We all know they are evil beings with warped minds, human vultures with deranged value systems that seek out innocent families to prey upon. Now that I think about it, I heartily salute the filmmakers associated with the "Stepfather" trilogy for bringing this massive threat to wider attention. Certain individuals have formed a conspiracy to throw us off the trail by making movies about machete wielding killers wearing hockey and Halloween masks, but now that we have these films, we know the truth. Evil is more insidious than a massacre at a summer camp, more pervasive than a razorblade clawed monstrosity haunting our dreams. Wickedness, true wickedness, reaches out to us in the form of a middle aged white guy who wears cardigan sweaters while offering to play catch with us in the backyard. After watching this film, along with the two other entries in the franchise, I feel it is essential to alert the unwary to this horrific hazard. Run, don't walk, to pick up a copy of "Stepfather 2."
Terry O'Quinn returns as the enigmatic Stepfather in a sequel that continues the nightmares seen in the first installment. Locked safely away in a mental hospital at the beginning of the film, the Stepfather longs for the day when he can once again walk the streets of suburbia with his own idyllic family. First, he must escape from the facility, not an easy task considering how much the guards hate and fear him. Fortunately, a new psychiatrist decides to try a different tack with the Stepfather. By giving the inmate new freedoms and a sympathetic ear, this fool hopes to rehabilitate the sociopath. Oops.

THE STEPFATHER was one of the most minor but great horror films to come out in 1987. Terry O'Quinn fit the role perfectly, and the rest of the cast, while not all filling their roles to a tee, nonetheless supported him well, making his character all the more believable in his psychotic rage. Now, I saw STEPFATHER 3 before this one, and I wasn't impressed with the third one and don't plan on owning it anytime soon. But there was one reason I bought this DVD and decided to give STEPFATHER 2 a chance: Terry O'Quinn.

You might all remember the end of the first film, as Jerry Blake (O'Quinn's character in part 1) brutally attacked his wife and daughter, having been disappointed that they are not "perfect". He was starting to make another life for himself, but he failed and ended up being stabbed at the end by Stephanie. Did the Stepfather survive the chaos? You better believe he did, thanks to some surgery and healing of medicine. I was hoping for good things with STEPFATHER 2.

We pick up with the Stepfather (in the first frame still Jerry Blake) in a psychiatric institution, a little hair loss and a dream of the events from the prior film. We find that the Stepfather still likes to build houses out of wood, but not so much birdhouses anymore. He's seeing a psychiatrist and at first you feel bad for him because he looks like a poor schmuck the first time he sits in for a session. Ah, but you know by now this guy means business, and he makes a plan to escape, and he does...killing the psychiatrist and bludgeoning the security guard in his wake. He walks off the ground while in the background the alarm at the facility sounds off, marking an escape and panic ensues...all while our Stepfather calmly strolls off the grounds a free man.

Stepfather was a vastly underrated Horror film that dealt with the psychotic Terry O' Quinn (one of my favorite actors) once again trying to find the perfect family and the perfect life. We never really know his chracter's true name as he constantly adapts new alias's to find new families to move into and eventually kill. This time he escapes from the mental facility where he was placed after the events in the first film.

He takes on the alias of Dr. Gene Clifford, a marriage counselor and moves to an idyllic subdivision. He eventually sets his sights on widow Carol Grayland (Meg Foster) and her son Todd (Jonathan Brandis). Once again Gene seems like the perfect dad but this time some of the neighbors and friends of Carol begin to suspect something is not right. Gene responds by killing anyone who gets in his way and tries to interfere with his perfect life.

The film basically follows the same formula that the first did but that's ok because it's a solid formula and O'Quinn is so very watchable in everything he does. Meg Foster is far better in her role as the wife this time than the bland Shelly Hack was in the first. While Stepfather II doesn't break any new ground it is an above average psycho-thriller
