The Stepfather (2009)

Daddy's Home...

Welcome back for the final episode of The Liberal Dead's Stepfather Retrospective Podcast Series! In this episode, Jeff (@Jeff_FOTD) and James (@DrJimmyTerror) close out the series and take on Nelson McCormick's 2009 remake, The Stepfather.

Are remakes inherently bad? Is there really an Iranian remake of this remake? How many times will the guys bring up Amber Heard and her bikini? How did Shawn sum up the film in five words? More importantly, how do things come full circle for the franchise?

Find the answers to these burning questions here - along with talk of the film's history and origins, its critical reception, and its place in pop culture and the franchise. As always, the guys give you their unfiltered opinions... Oh, and expect some reflection on the series as a whole in there, too...
