  1. FISCHER's rating of the film The Stepfather

    "Famille je vous hais" écrivait André Gide, ce qui est à l'extrême opposé du troublant paranoïaque qui recherche inlassablement la perfection symbolique et réelle de la cellule familiale, idéalement harmonieuse jusqu'à bannir ses échecs antérieurs ..... www.cinefiches.com

  2. film_lies101's rating of the film The Stepfather

    As 80's commentary it pales in comparison to 'People Under the Stairs' but Quinn's performance is absolutelychilling

  3. PETE GCDB's rating of the film The Stepfather

    I think my favorite scene in this film is when Jerry has one of his psychotic meltdowns in his basement while unbeknownst to him, his new stepdaughter Stephanie watches on in shock. When he notices her presence he completely does an emotionally schizophrenic 360 and says: Oh, Hi Honey. An excellent pitch black comedy/horror film.

  4. T. J. Harman's rating of the film The Stepfather

    Very 80s slasher elevated by O'Quinn's performance.

  5. Westley's rating of the film The Stepfather

    Classic 80's slasher. Family values have never been scarier than this.

  6. trondjo's rating of the film The Stepfather

    Based on pure entertainment value this is a four star horror movie. It's dumb, over-the-top and totally unbelievable. Nevertheless it's a great ride, and Terry O'Quinn (the bald guy from "Lost") is mesmerizing in a "Jack Nicholson-way" as the maniac family killer. 3+ stars.

  7. Silenzio's rating of the film The Stepfather

    A flawed but highly enjoyable horror film which owes a lot to Terry Quinns performance which is entertaining without ridiculous overacting. Among the standout scenes are the chilling opening, his first murder in the new town and the scene in which he momentarily forgets his identity....

  11. Francisco Adrian Cabrera Godoy's rating of the film The Stepfather

  12. Checkpoint Charlie's rating of the film The Stepfather

    O'Quinn is good, but the film is quite laugable even with him in the center of it.
