The Stepfather Movie Review by Joe (7/19/2011)

Another useless, lackluster, boring old routine of a movie remake is just how this movie should be simply put. The central, same formulaic plot with the mother meeting a guy, falling for him, getting married and this new stepfather being one total dick is here of course. There are teenage girls screaming everywhere, when...

The Stepfather Movie Review by Movie Addict (4/15/2011)

- the remake is nowhere as good as the original,
- the remake is so different you wonder why it's called a remake, or
- the remake is exactly the same as the original

We saw an example of #3 in the 1999 Gus Van Sant remake of Alfred Hitchcock's...

The Stepfather Movie Review by Bennie (3/7/2010)

Nelson McCormick's The Stepfather is a remake of the 1987 cult classic of the same name. I liked it about as much as the original. It does have some things going for it that the first one didn't: a bigger budget, Penn Badgley with his shirt off, more suspense in my opinion, and finally Penn Badgley with his shirt off. I...
