Michael (Penn Badgley) returns home to find his mum living with a new man called David (Dylan Walsh). Michael becomes suspicious of his new stepfather and keeps watch on him. Also starring Amber Heard and Sela Ward. This is the remake of the 1987 film of the same name.Very cliché but it wasn’t too unbearable. It was a good watch but I wouldn’t watch it again. Nothing interesting happens until the very end which is a shame. There were no edge of your seat scenes unfortunately but I only watched it for Penn Badgley who was in Gossip Girl. It’s not a very interesting film really, quite boring and predictable in places but it’s easy going.
I was hoping the ending would be very climactic but it wasn’t. The showdown between son and stepfather lasted about 2 or 3 minutes and was a bit pathetic really. I haven’t seen the original so I can’t compare them but after watching this one I don’t think I’ll be watching the original.
