Watch, Pass, or Rent: The Stepfather

I haven't been wowed by the promos for The Stepfather, but it does have Gossip Girl's Penn Badgley in it, so maybe I can be persuaded to go see it on Friday.

Based on the 1987 original, the film follows Michael (Badgley), a son who returns home from military school to meet his mom's new boyfriend, David (Nip/Tuck's Dylan Walsh). But once a neighbor suggests that his stepfather looks like a suspect on America's Most Wanted, Michael gets suspicious that the guy is not as nice as he seems [cue creepy music].

While The Stepfather doesn't look scary-movie-bracket-worthy, the scene in the trailer where David drops a chainsaw on Michael's girlfriend did make me jolt. Maybe I'll go see it if I'm in the mood for a fright, but otherwise, I think I'll pass.

Are you going to check out The Stepfather? Or will you wait until you can watch it at home with the lights on?

I will say, I am a fan of Amber Heard. I just wish All the Boys Love Mandy Lane got released instead of this

I didn't think the original was all that great. This looks even worse.

I'll take the original, tyvm. And I can hardly stand Penn as Dan Humprehy on GG, why would I pay to watch him try to act in this remade mess?
