The Stepfather

The Stepfather is a 1987 American thriller slasher starring Terry O'Quinn in the title role. It is loosely based on the life of mass murderer John List, although the plot is more commonly associated with slasher films of the era than a true story. It was directed by Joseph Ruben and written by Donald E. Westlake, from a story by Westlake, Carolyn Lefcourt and Brian Garfield. Although production started and ended in 1985 in British Columbia over 40 days, the movie was not released until 1987, when it was met with critical acclaim. It was followed by two sequels, released in 1989 and 1992, and a remake, also called The Stepfather, which was released on October 16, 2009. ... more on Wikipedia
