Critic Reviews for Stepfather II

All Critics (5)

Rarely has a sequel followed its predecessor's exact template like this thoroughly imitative follow-up.

...a tiresome sequel that boasts little worth recommending aside from Terry O'Quinn's expectedly electrifying performance.

The original is great; this is lousy.

Audience Reviews for Stepfather II

Not as great as the first one, but it's still exciting and a good horror movie. I enjoyed it.

A logical and just as worthy sequel in the Stepfather series. Terry O'Quinn is back as the menacing family-killing stepfather figure. This time around, he has a stepson (Jonathan Brandis of Neverending Story 2 fame!) The wedding reception end battle is great.

Inferior sequel to am average slasher film, The Stepfather II fails at capturing the essence of what made the first one entertaining. Filled with lacking Suspense and thrills, The Stepfather II is a disappointment and doesn't try to terrify the audience, most of time you feel bored, as the plot is too predictable and cliches ridden. overall, Stepfather II is a slasher flick with not a single interesting thing about it. A below average film, even by slasher film standards.
