Review: This was a fairly well-known thriller back in the 1980s. I saw the recent remake of this film first and was told that the original is even better – and it in fact is. In this original it is a young girl – rather than a teenaged boy in military school – that is terrorized by the psychotic Stepfather and that makes it easier for the viewer to feel her fear when she suspects her stepfather to be a serial murderer. Acting is wonderful throughout. Jill Schoelen shines in this film as the young girl under threat, and the praise she received from this film was to gain her several lead roles in movies later. Terry O’Quinn is appropriately creepy as the murderous Stepfather. The disc contains no extras, but one should perhaps be grateful that this rare film is at last available in Blu-ray.
