One of My Favorite Movies of All Time--Revisited!

The StepFather

Today I was rummaging through my Google Reader per usual, and I was stunned to find info about the filming of a "Stepfather" remake. In case anyone doesn't know, I have been an avid "Stepfather" lover since my sophomore year of high school. I own all three films in the series. I used to watch the series every weekend (interchangeably with the "Sleepaway Camp" series). Heck, if you don't believe me, you can even look to the right of this page and view my top 10 favorite movies of all time. I don't think too many others (with the exception of anyone I was best friends with in high school [maybe college] have any idea this film ever existed.)

I will admit, however; times have changed if the part of Jill Schoelen, who played the STEP-daughter of now-Emmy-award-winning Terry O'Quinn, the original Stepfather in the original film, is being replaced by Gossip Guy Penn Badgley. Blah. If there is hope for a "Stepfather" remake, then perhaps down the line we'll see a "Paperboy" remake? Ahh...now that would be pretty awesome. And they can get a Jonas Brother to play little psycho Johnnie.

If you were a fan of the original "Stepfather" series, sound off in the comments below!

I'm a huge Terry O'Quinn fan and am disappointed they are remaking this movie. Terry IS the stepfather! At least I've heard they are having him make a cameo in the new movie.
