The Stepfather (1987)

An All-American Family... He'd Kill For It!

Welcome to the inaugural episode of The Liberal Dead's Stepfather Retrospective Podcast Series! In this episode, Jeff (@Jeff_FOTD) is joined by co-host James (@DrJimmyTerror) to tackle the first film in the franchise, 1987's The Stepfather.

How many people has Jeff met that have murdered their families? Why does Joseph Ruben keep making movies about murderous family members? Why are the guys uncomfortable looking at Jill Schoelen's boobs? More importantly, how does James' stepdaughter feel about him after seeing this movie?!

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.
