“Father knows best.”

Jerry is the perfect loving father…unless things don’t go his way, then he turns into a raging psychopath and hacks up the entire family. Terry O’Quinn (Lost) gives one of his most memorable and entertaining performances in The Stepfather (1987). A lot of actors say that playing a villain can often be more exciting than being the hero. Well if thats true, it was an excellent role for Terry to go crazy with (pun intended). The movie was remade in 2009 but if you haven’t seen the original version, we highly recommend giving it a watch. It mixes black comedy and horror together really well.
