The Stepfather Trailer

This fall, Daddy's home! The first trailer for The Stepfather, a remake of the 1987 thriller of the same name, has hit the web today. Yep, this is that movie with a poster that has hands holding a tie in a menacing way (see that here). It's kind of like Disturbia, except that the serial killer is actually this guy's soon-to-be-stepfather, not his neighbor. Oooh, that one give you chills? Of course, this features plenty of hotties in bikinis (is there any other way to sell a horror?) like Amber Heard and plenty of menacing "I don't trust this guy" moments. Anyway, I'll probably check this out, but it doesn't look like it'll be anything too special.

Watch the first trailer for The Stepfather:

[flv:http://media2.firstshowing.net/firstshowing/stepfather-trailer.flv http://media2.firstshowing.net/firstshowing/stepfather-trailer.jpg 482 272]

Michael Harding returns home to find his mother happily in love and living with her new boyfriend, David. As the two get to know each other, Michael becomes more and more suspicious of the man who's always there lend a helpful hand. Is he really the man of her dreams or could David be hiding a dark side?

The Stepfather is directed by Nelson McCormick, of last year's Prom Night as well as plenty of TV show episodes. The screenplay was originally written by Donald E. Westlake and then revised by J.S. Cardone (The Covenant, Prom Night). Screen Gems will debut The Stepfather in theaters on October 16th this fall.

    Itslike Disturbia... but... in the same house.

    I love Dylan Walsh but I don't think this will be anything like the original. I'd rather it be a drama about a new dad but no there always needs to be a cheesy horror flick that ruins a career or shows the same shit over and over again. #1 That is exactly what I thought! And this trailer gave away everything so pass!
  • Crimson
    seems like that trailer just showed us the whole film.
  • Kevin
    You have to admit...the swinging circular saw at the end is pretty great. You should all go back and watch the original. Terry O'Quinn (Locke from LOST) is the stepfather. It's actually a pretty good movie and O'Quinn is awesome as always.
  • Lucky
    they showed the whole movie......
  • Chad
    looks decent
  • Amber Heard, yeah baby Yeah..!
  • Seen it in less than 3 mins, bonus!
  • cody
    sooo domestic disturbance 2
  • Shelby
    who decides what goes into these trailers? they give away way too much about what is going to happen, especially at around the 2:00 minute mark.
  • Brandon
    The male version of Poison Ivy? More Amber Heard please!! She really fills out that bikini. Yummy
  • xerxex
    I don't think Walsh can beat Terry O'quinn (John f'ing Locke) as a manical killer.
  • teddymercury
    it's like disturbia... but the exact same thing.
  • Walsh and Terry O'quinn who is the winner ?
  • xerxex
    Terry O'Quinn. Walsh seems to be too nice, which isn't bad.
  • Mario
    This would have been awesome if directed by David Cronenberg. Still, i might watch it.
  • xerxex
    #16 I have to agree.
  • Nutsac Tacos
    Its like Disturbia, but without Shia Lebeouf
  • viral
    just me or does the use of font evoke "the Godfather" feel?
  • Movies Rule
    Wait so that's not how a step-father relationship is? Seems normal to me
  • martyn
    Amber Heard very yummy!!!
  • Dr. Christian Troy will show up and save the day?
  • d1rEct

  • Ripper
    Domestic Disturbance the Disturbia Edition
  • quez

  • Zeezee
    Nothing could be the pure awesome of Terry O'Quinn but this doesn't look bad.
  • mrmr
    meh. you almost sold me on the hotties in bikinis. but id much rather SEE hotties in bikinis, ill just go to the beach this weekend. this could be disturbia part 2. just not as good.
  • miracle disease
    was that a trailer or the entire movie itself? hopefully there's more in the movie than what is there in the trailer...
  • First CHILLING trailer? I guess you have not seen Inside or Martyrs yet.
  • Sebastian Selig
    PG-13. I'm out.
  • Conrad
    "Mother said turn it DOWN!"
  • JussHaten
    I think the original was better already!
  • Seductive Flamingo
    Yep. PG 13. All the good parts are in this preview. So enjoyed that while it lasted. But yes I will agree. The hanging circular saw, was PRETTY sweet.
  • big r
    It seems like every movie that comes out can be referenced to a movie that already came out in the past. This looks like that, that looks like this... then when they reboot or remake a movie, people complain about that as well. I guess there really is no more originality.
  • Dexter
    The poster's soooo cheesy, who ever came up with that idea ought to be fired! looks like some japanese executives strike placards.
  • Foxmulder32
    This is the crappy version of Domestic Disturbance (Which wasn't all that great to begin with). I guess Vince Vaugn did star in a crappy version of Psycho...so he deserves it.
  • tankmaster
    Haha if a saw is falling down on u roll out of the way!
  • Tired of Remakes
    Wish Hollywood would come up with original ideas! Way too soon for this to be remade.
