We have come to the end of the Stepfather Retrospective Series which means we’ve arrived at the 2009 remake simply entitled The Stepfather and o(pens with the same scene essentially and then… the movie just has it’s way with you). I want to be absolutely clearly that Jeff and I do not outright hate remakes. All movies deserve to be screened (well… nearly all movies), and we tried to give this one a fair shake. Think we liked it? Did you see it and enjoy it? What’s your ranking for the entire Stepfather series (1-3 and the remake)? Think we’ll get a re-imagining called The Stepmother? The Dead Air guys go through all of this and include an in depth discussion of the Remake.
We’ve come a long way since Terry O’Quinn shaved his beard and went on a disposable family bender. We’ve seen three separate people don the sacred title of Stepfather (as opposed to Godfather). From thriller to slasher to cash grab made for TV to let-me-make-a-stepfather-flick-scary, this podcast will discuss it all. Before listening remember that we discuss this movie and all others in the series including full on spoilers. This will spoil the movie (if anything is even worth spoiling). Listener take warning.
We would like to note that we have an upcoming Sleepaway Camp Retrospective series currently in the can that will be posting shortly (or half in the can which is better than half in the bag). Make sure you take a look down your pants and see what your packing if you know what I mean… tee hee hee. We’ll be dividing the series into three parts beginning with the first movie, moving to parts 2 and 3 directed by Michael Simpson and then moving on to a composite Sleepaway Camp IV and Return to Sleepaway Camp episode. We’re all going to learn something this series.
Also note that after watching The Stepfather remake and realizing that the same director is responsible for the Prom Night remake, we’re going to do that one sooner rather than later. Get your dancing clogs on and keep following us on your social media weapon of choice to find out when that’s coming. Book your hotel rooms. WE’RE GONNA GET LAID!
