In this episode of The Forgotten Flix Podcast, we discuss the creepy, suspenseful classic The Stepfather (1987)! Directed by Joseph Ruben and starring Terry O’Quinn (Lost), Jill Schoelen (Popcorn, The Phantom of the Opera), and Shelly Hack (King of Comedy).
This is the tale of Jerry Blake (O’Quinn), family man extraordinaire. He dreams of having the “perfect” family and he’ll kill to get it. When he marries Stephanie’s (Schoelen) mom, Susan (Hack), the perceptive teen begins to suspect her new dad is not who he claims to be.
As bodies start stacking up, Stephanie learns the truth about Jerry. But will it be too late for her and her mom? Find out as we explore the many layers of this under seen, Hitchcockian thriller.
