2.0 out of 5 stars "Who Am I Here?" 21 April 2010
Format:DVD
The original was an impressive, unassuming little movie from the 80s (which, incidentally, has been given a pathetic full-screen dvd release), so I was looking forward to seeing how they'd screw up the remake. To be fair, it starts promisingly enough, with serial fruitcake Dylan Walsh attempting to mould Sela Ward and her offspring into the perfect family. Nip Tuck veteran Walsh is surprisingly intimidating as the steppie from Hell and there are some effectively uncomfortable scenes as his mind starts to unravel. It's a more aggressive performance than Terry O'Quinn's brilliantly warped portrayal in the original, but the 1987 film had a streak of black humour that worked particularly well and is sadly lacking in this reworking. Other shortcomings include:
1) Far too much screen time devoted to the stepson's relationship with his girlfriend, which is basically an excuse for the director to perve on massively annoying bimbo Amber Heard.
2) A gaping hole in the plot concerning the real father's disappearance halfway through the film. Why isn't he reported missing?
3) A crucial sub-plot from the original (victim's brother attempts to track down the murderer) has been ignored. Consequently this adaptation hits a flat spot and never recovers, becoming hopelessly repetitive in it's storytelling.
4) The climax is totally underwhelming and unexciting.
The film is certainly watchable and superior to some of the other appalling recent remakes, but I can't help thinking this was a missed opportunity to improve on the humble, low budgeted (but very entertaining) original.

4.0 out of 5 stars Top Notch Thriller 8 Oct 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a really exciting thriller with loads of twists and opportunities to scream at the nervy scenes. And of course it features the beautiful Amber Heard, who is also a fine actress + the reason i purchased the item! To conclude, i recommend the movie.

2.0 out of 5 stars FAMILY IS IMPORTANT 15 July 2013
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The film opens quietly on Christmas morning with David (Dylan Walsh) having a cup of coffee, playing Christmas music, and leaving his bludgeon family behind. It was a nice scene, almost surreal in how it was done. We know David is the family slasher as his charming self meets up with a new mommy (Sela Ward). After 6 months they are engaged. Her son Michael (Penn Badgley) initially takes to the new stepfather, but then starts to have his doubts as does other people. Michael's girlfriend (Amber Heard) provides the film with some token bikini eye candy.

The movie concentrates mostly on the building of the new relationship and the clues David drops that he is not what he claims to be. As people figure out his identity, he must eliminate them one by one until we get to the expected climax scene, which even by modest slasher standards, was a bit of a let down. I will say the acting was better than most "B" productions, but the script lacked the "few good scenes" that any movie needs. There are better slasher films out there.

1 f-bomb, no sex, no nudity.

2.0 out of 5 stars Inadequate Flawed Remake 1 April 2012
Format:DVD
Aimed more towards the teenage market than it's superior original,The Stepfather is a below-average irritating mess of a thriller aimed at making a quick buck from those who aren't even aware there is a much better movie from the 80s out there with the same title.
Dylan walsh is unconvincing as the serial killer who's obsessed with the concept of the perfect family.Terry O' Quinn was much more intelligent,chilling and belivable in the original 8os cult chiller.
Dylans' character makes too many silly mistakes considering he's supposed to have got away with this murdering business for a number of years.He even forgets to delete the history on the family computer after checking his photo-fit on America's Most Wanted website.(DUH!!)
The two teenage characters in the movie (the future stepson, and his girlfriend played by Amber Heard) are totally useless spending most of the running time frolicking about in the family pool.
Ms heard's contract no doubt stated 'your character must spend most of her scenes walking around half-naked looking empty, and void of any human emotion'.Not so different, in fact, from her character in 'All The Boys Love Mandy Lane'.Is this girl being typecast by any chance?
All in all this is a feckless bit of movie-making with few redeeming qualities as so far as a good thriller goes-unless of course you are just looking for footage of Amber Heard strolling about with a minimum amount of clothing on.If so then you've just struck gold!

1.0 out of 5 stars One to avoid... 14 Nov 2011
By J. Morris TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
The Stepfather (played by Dylan Walsh - Nip/Tuck) is about a serial-killer that has a preference for single mothers with children. He moves into their lives rapidly, fronting as a recently-bereft mourning father himself who just needs love. Once inside, he tries to force the family into his idea of a perfect family unit - whether the mother and kids like it or not with violent results should anyone dare to differ.

Resultantly, he has to deal with the suspicious friends & neighbours who notice that he only uses cash, shies away from anything that requires his social security number or any official documentation. Naturally, the teenage son (Penn Badgley - Gossip Girl) is highly-suspicious and so begins a Disturbia-stlye cat & mouse play except the killer is inside the house.

Where this film falls completely flat is any sense of tension that should have been present in this film is robbed from it by the opening scene showing that he is, in fact, a serial killer. So we are not on board with the rest of the family umming & aahing about 'is he/isn't he', we are literally just left waiting for him to go off. I mean he is right there on the cover, knife in hand FGS!! The one card this hackneyed plot had to play is not knowing whether the man you have let into your house & family is a killer or not - and that was ruined from the get-go.

Maybe - I stress this - maybe, worth a watch if you like these type of predictable horror movies (scary but predictably safe) but other than that, this is really one to avoid!!
