A movie made for the cinema.
18 October 2001 | by (London,England) – See all my reviews

The Stepsister is a brilliant movie about a money grabbing woman named Joan who with a little help from her daughter, marries men, then kills them covering up the murders and then gets all there money. But, when Joan ends up falling in love with one of the men she's supposed to kill, her evil daughter, Melinda makes a cunning plan to kill them all and get the money for herself. She has to get past the mans daughter, Darcie though, who's very suspicious and knows something is up the minute she meets Joan and Melinda.

Rena Sofer who plays the lead role here is brilliant as usual and is fast becoming one of my all time favourite actress'. Linda Evans who plays Joan is also good too. The only complaint I have is, Bridgette Wilson. She really doesn't do a job in her role. She's just whiny and annoying. Still, not even that can spoil this original suspense thriller.

If you want to see a great thriller which keeps you interested all the way than The Stepsister is for you and I give it a 10/10.
