Description: Filmed by director of Sister-in-Law movie. «Stepfather» horror, released in small period of extinction genre «slasher», namely in 86-90-th years of 20 century. This film, few could see the few people he could enjoy. Especially in those times, when the screens went out all new and new parts of Halloween, Nightmare on elm street» and other representatives of the genre, and so was the competition and the audience was tired. But despite the difficult period, the film was still trying to find their connoisseurs.
With one hand in front of us a great Thriller that can highlight some of the problems in the families of the world. Has amazing atmospheric and famously twisted plot. This makes it easy to watch, and sometimes not even think about that before you a horror movie. Plus, we still have a young actor Terry O Quinn, who coped with the role perfectly. His face is visible some charisma, and something in his eyes causes a nervous flutter.
On the other hand – tight Thriller. Exactly – tightened. Whether the writers strongly hurry, whether Joseph Rubin something overlooked when sitting in the Director’s chair.
Although the tape and there are a couple of disadvantages, but this did not spoil the view. Fans of the genre this movie, of course, enjoy it, but here’s children, widows and divorced women I would not recommend. Too much of the story came out impressive.
