Somewhat predictable like all films of this kind but extremely well acted and suspenseful. Not your typical horror flick. Really enjoyed it.

Fine.. Good.. Okay.. So-so. I didn't really expect too much from it, but my girlfriend and I were treating some friends and they wanted to watch a scary movie. It was a good movie, but as far as scary goes, it was a little bland. Its hard to be scared when you know who the killer is and who his targets are right from the get-go. Honestly, I would just rent it. Its not cram-packed with movie-delight, but it was still decent in its own way.

Bad. Acting so so. Storyline predictable. Thank goodness this was only 1 hour 41 minutes. Would not recommend paying too much to see it. Wait for DVD...worth 99 cents

Stepfather is formula Hollywood, but enjoyable

I walked out of this movie not really impressed, but felt it was worth the time to see it. There's nothing really new in the movie and the ending is hardly surprising. The editors certainly enjoyed showing off the good bodies of Penn Badgley and Amber Heard (neither of which looked like they were in high school), but both good to look at. It was fun guessing who was the next victim.

not bad

For a remake, it was alright. Stuck with the original story which to me is all that really mattered. Guy is obsessed with the "perfect family" syndrome and will do anything to have it. Will always be a great thriller plot
