Do you want to marry me?
9 October 2002 | by (Montgomery, Alabama) – See all my reviews

Jonathan Brandis is terrific as Todd in this charming horror film. The supporting cast is brilliant. The costumes are nice. One of the good films in the genre, Stepfather 2: Make Room For Daddy will become a father of terror to the viewer. 7 out of 10.
