The Stepfather 2 Directed by Jeff Burr The Stepfather, one of the most effective psychological thrillers made in the early 80's, may have been a flop in theaters, but it found a second life on cable and videocassette, gaining enough of a cult following to result in a sequel. The original Stepfather was a complex thriller about a man whose quest for perfection leads him to murder his family and try to start fresh with another. Stepfather 2 definitely follows the same formula, but focuses on the courtship leading up to the marriage rather than  the marriage itself. It begins with an opening montage, recapping  the end of the first film. we learn that Daddy Dearest, a.k.a. Gerald Blake, a.k.a the stepfather, survived the bullet and knife wounds from the end of the original.  Played once again by Terry O'Quinn, Blake is now an inmate in a mental hospital. »
