I have to say, after seeing a lot of reviews of this movie, I can honestly say that I'm a little perplexed. A lot of them seem to believe this is some kind of Lifetime movie, some call it a typical dumbed-down teen thriller and I saw one reviewer call it a call back to old horror titillation, and I'm surprised and that this film is neither of those. In fact, it's the exact opposite. While some Lifetime thirllers revolve around a woman who is being tortured by her abusive husband, who'm she must try to escape from his evil man-grasp, this film is actually about the older son of <more>
the family who tries to prove to his mother that her boyfriend is evil, much to the mother's understandable denial. It's not a teen revenge movie about a kid who trying to rail against the new guy in his life who for some unexplained reason is evil. It's a film about domestic life and show's you every minute of what's happening with both the son and the stepfather, explaining every happening and soaking up all the tension between them, with the only exposure to his teen life his girlfriend, who serves less as his flat love interest to escape to and more like his straight-man who calls him about on an obsession based on a though correct simple distrust. Speaking of which, the reviewer who said this was all about the skin and sex appeal must have been pretty prudish, because I think there's about one scene which focuses about them making out, and it's pretty tame as far as thrillers go. She spends most of movie in her bikini, but it's never the focus of any shot. The character's are an oddity in film today, as they're likable for the most part, and when they aren't, it's understandable. This especially odd for the teen couple, who seem intelligent and more than one note. The stepfather is affable, and pulls off the charming part well for the most part, seeming just like the stepdad you've always wanted. He commits murders throughout the movie, but if they never showed any before the end the only thing you would suspect is that the son is obsessed...except for the blasting soundtrack, which I'll admit eases up toward the middle. There's no campiness or over-the-topness in the movie, and everything is done in a realistic fashion, enough to say that if someone was this smart and charming, this could happen to you. It's a bit anti-climatic at times, but otherwise keep you satisfied through out the film.This is a thriller/horror movie that keeps up with the times. It's not like horror movies today that seem to forget they're not in the 70's, making advances in technology into huge plot holes or underestimates the intelligence of today's people, whether the characters or the audience. Rather it uses those advances to it's advantage and perfectly measures the logic and understanding of people today, sometimes using it to add relief or tighten suspense. It takes everything you knows about thillers, and while it doesn't turn them all around or revolutionize anything, it at least stays away from the stereotypes or make the standard tropes less tired It's not some kind of Lifetime movie of the week, or MTV Award bait, or even one of those David Loughery faux-thrillers; what this is a tight scripted, well-acted, truly suspenseful film that keeps you guessing, if you can predict what already happens. I recommend a lot of movies, but if your a horror or suspense fan and you've at least okay with the remakes of films like Friday the 13th or My Bloody Valentine, you have to go see this movie! It will amaze you in how they keep everything fresh and tense!
Very Impressive. (by TodayIsTheDayOurSinsWillBeOver)
Having not seen the original version of The Stepfather I have to say that normally I'm not a fan of remakes, and usually, yes, I do loathe them because they always tend to be a load of crap Texas Chainsaw Massacre remakes for example.. . However, since I haven't seen the original Stepfather film I can't compare them both, but what I have seen in this remake is something else. I was really, really impressed with this, and I am going to have to seek out the original now to see what it was like.The Stepfather basically tells the story of "David" - a disturbed man who is <more>
apparently normal and caring on the outside but very unstable on the inside, both psychologically and emotionally and one of who lives a lot double lives, looking for recently divorced women to emotionally manipulate them and ultimately, breaks them down and kills them and any immediate family. I always compare him to the girl out of the Orphan because they both have nearly the same tactics at luring people into trusting them - in fact this movie reminded me of Orphan a lot. Anyway, when he senses he may be in danger of having his history found out, "David" takes even more extreme action to cover his steps up a lot quicker than he would normally do. "David" has been doing this many for years, and also has evaded capture from the police by changing his appearance and never using any ID when purchasing, for example a car. He always pays in cash, and always changes his appearance in somewhat way before moving onto his next victim. You may think it's a relatively simple plot, but the movie itself is a lot of fun and suspense. There's also a lot of psychological tension and build up as "David"'s new family become suspicious of his activities and his apparent lack of background information. As the movie progresses, things turn for the worse for the family he has deceived as they become wary of his background.The acting is first class, and the guy who acts as "David", Dylan Walsh? I think that's his name. He is very convincing in his role. I honestly can't find one bad thing to say about this movie, as I definitely enjoyed it, and the build up of psychological suspense kept me watching until the very end of the credits. All in all it's quite excellent, and I've given it a 9 out of 10, simply losing one point because it is still a remake, but one that is excellent.If you're a fan of Orphan or indeed, The Strangers, The Stepfather's psychological factors may just peek your interests here. Definitely a must watch at some point. Very enjoyable!
Gossip Girl's Dan Humphrey Penn Badgley plays Michael Harding in this new movie the Step Father. After being sent away to somewhat of a military camp for six months Michael returns back home with his girlfriend Kelly Porter Amber Heard . Only to see with his dismay that his Mom Susan Harding Sela Ward is engaged to a guy he doesn't even know. How would you react in this situation if a person you've never met is a part of your family? His new step Dad David Harris Dylan Walsh says family is the most important thing to him. Michael plays it cool and gives David a chance. Then <more>
after the neighbor tells Susan how resembles a sketch of a man on America's Most Wanted, popping out of nowhere all the time, and bad comments about a mom killing her kids on the news Michael starts to wonder. This movie was yet thrilling and scary and kept you wanting to know what was going to happen next. It was kind of slow, but fun to watch. Penn Badgley did a great job in his role in this movie and he is growing to be a good actor on Gossip Girl. Amber Heard which i saw recently on Never Back Down and Pineapple Express played her girlfriend role to Badgley and did a great job showing her true colors. Interested to see what these young actors will take on next in their acting career. See my Reviews on getthenew.com, thanks ahb.
Not amazing, but entertaining. (by premiumlauraaa)
First off, anyone going into this movie to be scared should just give up and enjoy the few little frightening shots of the amazing Dylan Walsh. It's a good movie in a different kind of way, normally you see the killer either die or be locked up, but since he gets away, this made the movie 100x better for me. I enjoyed the cheap little scares because I knew going in that I wasn't going to have nightmares. A little too much of the swimming with the two whore teenagers. I don't know what was worse, the underwear shots of the teen girl, or the bathing suit shots. There was far too <more><less>
Best 80s Remake So Far (by CoPSwords)
Even though The Stepfather was a remake, it was pretty good. It is probably one of the better remakes, because it does not do so much re-imagining, as it does updating. It takes a genuinely scary concept from the eighties, and makes it work for modern times. Now, the movie does not use much CGI, it tries to stick with older techniques. There are actually far more compliments than complaints with this movie. Even though the plot is laid out from the beginning, it is interesting to watch. It was enjoyable to watch as he lied, manipulated, and murdered. It used a lot of dramatic irony, probably <more>
more so than most movies I have seen recently. Not that it is a bad thing, it was actually quite refreshing for a movie to not really hide anything from you, but hide it from its characters. In the current market, it seems that, movies are trying to leave the audience stumbling around trying to figure out the plot, while this movie comes around and just lets the audience enjoy the ride. The dialog felt very real, even with the stepfather's bizarre emotions and actions. It did not really feel like it was trying too hard to sound legitimate, it just was what it was. That may seem like a given, but when you watch a lot of really bad movies, it is refreshing to have a group of writers who know what they are doing. The only really problem I have with the movie. The older son is supposed to be in high school, somewhere before senior year. The problem is that he, and his girlfriend, look and act like they are in college. Now that seems like a small issue, but it kept drawing me out of the movie because every once and a while he would comment that he still needs to get his driver's license or something, and that would immediately pull me out and beat me over the head. The movie really is pretty good, I might even say that it is better than the original, but I saw the remake first. Other than a few continuity issues, the movie is really well done. Definitely worth watching if you are into thriller, or horror.
