The final hurrah...
30 July 2006 | by (Noctropolis) – See all my reviews

Revenge of the sequels! "The Stepfather III" is one of the most un necessary sequels on Slasher cinema history. Different villain, but same old clichès. I liked this movie for the wrong reasons. I mean, when you rent/buy this movie you want to have cheap entertainment, or watch some gore. I watched it because it features Prsicila Barnes, and because it's a sequel to a guilty pleasure: The Stepfather.

This movie has the basic plot as the previous movies. But this time our beloved villain meets his match in a physically disabled boy who is smarter than everyone thinks. His hot mom falls in love and eventually marries our villain and you know the rest... Expect some decent death scenes and good acting. This is a perfect example of a regular Slasher flick with drama tones made for T.V. The ending is actually pretty good and it assures that the stepfather won't return.

The highlight of the movie is Priscila Barnes in a steamy sex scene where she wears sexy lingerie. That's it.

This time the Stepfather with a perfect plastic surgery in the face returns with a horrible attitude. The kid gets really annoying at some point but delivers a good role.

You could either watch the movie for Mrs. Barnes or if you love low budget Slashers. I watched it for both reasons.
