Part of Midnight Movies: Bad Dads. See Also: THE SHINING

Jerry Blake (Terry O Quinn, “Lost”) is a man obsessed with the American Dream: the house with the white picket fence in the suburbs, an adoring wife, and loving children. He believes he’s found it when he marries Susan Maine and becomes the stepfather to her 16-year-old daughter Stephanie. But Jerry’s FATHER KNOWS BEST attitude leaves Stephanie with an uneasy feeling. She can see that there is a darker side behind his cheerful exterior. Could she just be going through a typical teenage rebellion against her new stepfather, or is he actually the same man who brutally murdered his family just one year earlier?

“FATHER KNOWS BEST starring Ted Bundy...” —Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
