To be honest with you, I’m not entirely sure how “scary” a PG-13 horror movie about an evil stepfather can possibly be. Sure, he kills his families when they disappoint him, but at the end of the day he’s just a middle-age guy with anger issues, right? Most of us could take him with the right tools, or if we caught him watching TV in the living room. Anyways, it was good enough for an entire franchise, and now it’s apparently good enough for another one of them ever popular reboots. The first trailer for “The Stepfather” below. Behold, the less than scary frights of a PG-13 horror movie about an evil dad!
Michael Harding (Penn Badgley) returns home from military school to find his mother (Sela Ward) happily in love and living with her new boyfriend, David (Dylan Walsh). 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?
Starring Penn Badgley, Amber Heard, Christopher Meloni, Sela Ward, Dylan Walsh, Jason Wiles, Jon Tenney, Sherry Stringfield, Skyler Samuels, Braeden Lemasters, and directed by Nelson McCormick.
