Based on the 1987 original, the film follows Michael (Badgley), a son who returns home from military school to meet his mom's new boyfriend, David (Nip/Tuck's Dylan Walsh). But once a neighbor suggests that his stepfather looks like a suspect on America's Most Wanted, Michael gets suspicious that the guy is not as nice as he seems [cue creepy music].
While The Stepfather doesn't look scary-movie-bracket-worthy, the scene in the trailer where David drops a chainsaw on Michael's girlfriend did make me jolt. Maybe I'll go see it if I'm in the mood for a fright, but otherwise, I think I'll pass.
Are you going to check out The Stepfather? Or will you wait until you can watch it at home with the lights on?
