However, in contrast to the other review for this film, I have to mention he did NOT appear in Part 3. And that's why it sucked :)
Oh, and because I'm on Amazon.ca, I will mention - Stepfather was filmed in Canada, Vancouver I believe but I'm not sure, and features many actors besides O'Quinn who would feature in Chris Carter productions. The first one to spring to mind is a man who works for the Police who played the First Elder in The X-Files. X-Files, and Millennium, were both filmed in Vancouver too, you see :)
Terry O'Quinn as the Stepfather gives a stellar performance as a nutcase case walking the thin line between reality and psycho. The movie takes you inside the head of someone obsessed with creating a Rockwell fantasy world.
So go on then.... whistle a few bars of Camptown Races & create a dream family to die for!!!
Limited release in theatres when it first came out without much hype so it went straight to VHS where it became a cult classic and thats where i discovered it, in the Horror section along with the likes of Nightmare on Elm Street, Slaughter High, April Fools Day, Friday the 13th and more..
Even though it is classified as a Horror Film and there is alot of violence and blood...i wouldnt put it as a horror, more as a suspenseful thriller but whatever...it does what it's supposed to do...play with your emotions, get you really stressed & makes you jump, but what it really does so well...is that it keeps you glued to the screen to know whats going to happen next.
Terry O'Queen (From Lost) is amazing as "The Stepfather"...a kind and friendly man who can turn into a psycho at the flick of a switch...but the acting is so good that you could see him as both a loving father and a murderer...just a great performance, too bad he didnt get enough praise for it during that time, lets hope that the re-release of this film will give him the credit he deserved!
Of course, the release of this film is of course to cash in on the 2009 remake but whatever, nothing can compare to the original...watch it, you wont be disapointed!
Worth Noting: There was also a part 2 which was still not bad but not great, thank god for another fine performance from O'Queen and yes, believe it or not...Stepfather 3 was released as well 1-2 years later...still with O'Queen, but i think he was sick at that point of doing these sequels and it showed..and it just was a bad film all together...surprised it did not get released along with the first two...maybe one day!
