The initial reaction to trailers for Nelson McCormick’s remake of the 1987 patriarch horror “The Stepfather” were highly negative. It was pegged as yet another remake and it appeared to be filled with actors not too interested with the project. After all, there was no way that Dylan Walsh would be able to out do Terry O’Quinn from the original movie, so why bother? Now having sat through the movie and seeing just what Dylan Walsh was capable of as an insane step father hell bent on the perfect family, I have to eat my words. It turns out, the movie and Walsh were just fine.
