This week, Brian and John celebrate Father's Day in the only way possible; by reviewing a movie about a homicidal maniac who preys on single parent families in his search for the perfect family. We are of course talking about 1987's The Stepfather. An odd ball and much under appreciated slasher film that feels more like a slasher from the early 80's rather than the late 80's when stripped-sweatered dream killers and sadomascistic demons from a puzzle box were all the rage. Yet this film rises above all that and provides us with a smart and multi-layered horror film that touches on everything from Reagan Conservatism, the American dream, and the mixed emotions that come when new people enter a family due to either divorce or when a parent dies. So grab your world's greatest dad mug and pop on those headphones as we dive into the world of The Stepfather!
