So-SO
11 May 1999 | by kneelSee all my reviews

You know what? This movie actually wasn't so bad. The premise is basically the same as most slasher movies, but this one has a twist in that the killer, is actually obsessed with having the perfect family life and in the process, this obsession drives him to murder. Nothing really original with the kill scenes or the ending, but the Stepfather's madness is somewhat interesting. A 7 out of 10.
