Plot : Michael Harding returns home from military school to find his mother happily in love and living with her new boyfriend, David. As the two men get to know each other, Michael becomes more and more suspicious of the man who is always there with a helpful hand. Is he really the man of her dreams or could David be hiding a dark side?
Review : Watching your parents get divorced must be brutal, but it also sucks if one of your parents moves on a little too fast and brings home somebody that you aren’t fond of. This is what happened to Michael, he came home excited too see his family and the first person he sees is his moms new boyfriend of about 2 months who already moved in. Talk about taking things fast! The story and plot was very entertaining it does a great job with combining horror, suspense, and thrills, which helped form this great film. Absolutely loved the story! The remake to the original Stepfather was actually really good!The acting in this movie was maybe in the middle of decent – good. Which isn’t that bad if you ask me. I think that Dylan Walsh had a great performance, he was really believable in this role, and I don’t know if this is a good thing but he fit the part nicely. The rest of the cast were likable they all had solid enough performances to help the movie remain good.The acting might not have been amazing, but it was good and will keep you entertained while you are watching this film.
Blood and kills were not really a big thing in this movie, but there was still few kills with some pretty good kill scenes. As for the blood, there wasn’t really much of that, the movie wasn’t really gory, which would probably be the only thing I wish they could have changed about the film. The movie did make up for lack of blood though, the suspense and thrills that the movie gave us were off the charts, I would have to say I jumped up a lot and the movie really does a great job with making you feel scared for the characters in the movie. It was great and entertaining, made me not want to look away from the television. This movie will have you like:Overall I loved this movie and thought that it was highly enjoyable. This is a movie that can give you some good scares! The story was amazing and the movie contained pretty good actors. There really wasn’t much blood or kills, but the kill scenes were enjoyable. What really made this movie good was the suspense and thrills, this movie will absolutely have the viewer on the edge of their seats the whole time. I also felt like the ending was absolutely crazy, don’t want to spoil it but this movie is a MUST WATCH! If you haven’t seen this movie yet I highly recommend that you go watch it. You wont regret it! I guarantee you that you won’t want too look away from the television.
