Movie Info

After cheating death by surviving being both stabbed and shot, psychotic killer Jerry (Terry O'Quinn) is placed in a mental institution, but he soon murders his doctor and escapes. Taking on a dead man's identity, he moves to an upscale neighborhood in Los Angeles and sets his sights on local woman Carol (Meg Foster), slowly winning her heart. Carol's son, Todd (Jonathan Brandis), grows suspicious of his mom's new lover, however, and tensions reach the boiling point at the couple's wedding.

    In a way it is more ambitious than its predecessor (trying to get into O'Quinn's head more is a great idea) but that doesn't translate into a better movie. Ultimately the problem is that the setup requires too many unbelievable situations and scenarios.

    It's a better-than-average horror sequel with more style and dark humor than the first. However, the script's not as tight and suspenseful, and we're not really exploring new territory here. Terry O'Quinn's performance is again the highlight.

    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.

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