Critic Reviews of "The Stepfather (2009)"Time OutDecember 11, 2009
Not so much a contemporary re-make of Joseph Ruben's 1987 psychological thriller as a lobotomised bastard step-child: over-plotted, over-long, and stripped of the original's sharp, satirical subversion of suburban family values.L.A. WeeklyOctober 22, 2009
The Stepfather is, finally, only as good as its stepfather -- and Dylan Walsh ain't bad.Orlando SentinelOctober 19, 2009
That last stormy night of violence should be the shocker. Giving away his ruthlessness in earlier killings robs the movie of it its payoff as it saps the climax of much of its power.Chicago ReaderOctober 18, 2009
This perfunctory retread had a tame, made-for-TV feel, and not just because the humdrum cast is composed of network and cable B-listers.Hollywood ReporterOctober 18, 2009
This remake turns a fondly remembered horror/thriller into a mild and tedious suspense film.AV ClubOctober 18, 2009
Even by horror-remake standards, The Stepfather sets the bar for pointlessness.Georgia StraightFebruary 15, 2013
What a shame that the remake fell into the unwieldy hands of the same jokers responsible for last year's execrable Prom Night redo.Common Sense MediaDecember 19, 2010
Horror remake has more tension than blood.CinemaBlend.comAugust 12, 2010
The genre has diverged into two paths: the brutally gruesome and the suspenseful. This is going for the latter, which would have been fine if it were in fact thrilling.Groucho ReviewsFebruary 15, 2010
Any subtlety or implicit social satire to be found in Joseph Ruben's original went out with the last neighborhood trash pickup. Too bad the service was canceled before it could haul away this waste-of-time remake. [Blu-ray]London Evening StandardDecember 11, 2009
There's mayhem all over the place and not a policeman, or much logic, in sight. Watchable nonsense, with performances better than the story deserves.Empire MagazineDecember 11, 2009
Cliché-ridden and full of plot-holes.
