Check out The Stepfather trailer below as the Halloween thrillers for 2009 begin this Friday, October 16 with the evil, murderous stepfather movie. And that's just the beginning. Next week brings the sixth installment of the Saw franchise as they will try to think of new inventive ways to scare the crap out of us. In addition Paranormal Activity is gathering popularity and widening it's release onto more screens. Reviews are saying that some people were walking out of the theaters during screenings because it is so scary.
The Stepfather is the remake of the 1987 movie about a maniac who is searching for the perfect family as he continuously marries women with children and proceeds to murder them when they are not as perfect as he thought. The tagline for the original movie was classic, "Daddy's home and he's not very happy".
Usually remakes don't turn out to be as scary as the original, especially with the lack of creepy background music that a lot of horror movies in the 80's had. Modern day horror movies just go for the gore factor and leave out any suspense buildup. We'll see though...check out the trailer and see what you think.
