When I first saw this movie I wanted to own it on DVD, but I had to wait years and years for it to come out. It is kind of cheesy but great. The girl in it is a very horrible actress but that just seems to make it better.

The Perfect Father...

"Jerry Blake (Terry O'Quinn) is a new man since murdering his entire family and acquiring a new identity. No one knows who he really is, including his new wife (Shelley Hack) or his stepdaughter (Jill Schoelen from POPCORN and WHEN A STRANGER CALLS BACK). Don't worry, this isn't a spoiler, we know all of this information from the very beginning. Jerry sets up his latest "family" right away, leaving his past behind, as if it never happened. You see, Jerry just wants the perfect family, without fuss or problems. As long as everyone co-operates, everything is dandy. It's when people start disappointing him that Jerry has to respond. He must have order and perfection, or else! THE STEPFATHER is a fantastic 80s thriller, in the same league as FATAL ATTRACTION and future films like THE HAND THAT ROCKS THE CRADLE and SINGLE WHITE FEMALE. O'Quinn is masterful as Blake, a man torn between pretentious calm and homicidal violence. Ms. Hack is excellent as the oblivious mum, while Schoelen plays the pesky fly in Jerry's ointment! A great story w/ a finale that rivals the afore-mentioned classics of the genre! Buy immediately!..."
