Stepfather II (1989)


Terry O'Quinn, a great script, and great direction made the original Stepfather (1987) a critical hit.    I'm surprised O'Quinn came back for the sequel, which at the time I thought was inferior to the original, but now it's a bit of a guilty pleasure and I like a lot of the things they did.   By the way, I'll soon be doing the original Stepfather locations, which shot up in Vancouver, keep a look out.   (And for those interested in the Stepfather remake, you can check those out at the link.)   But for now Stepfather II....

First up, a shot from the driving montage as Jerry seeks out his new home....

UPDATE November 2013:  While I knew the location for the asylum, I waited until I was staying at the Langham Huntington in Pasadena to photograph the location.  It's a beautiful hotel...

UPDATE November 2013:  While attending the 35 Years Of Terror convention for Halloween, I had the great pleasure to meet Caroline Williams, easily one of my favorite guests at that event.   While there, I was able to get the Stepfather II script, which included all the call sheets with locations!   I had been looking for her character's house for a while with no luck, but thankfully the address was right there on the call sheet, in Burbank no less!   Here is  the house...

Evil-Lyn, Meg Foster.....




And the fantastic Caroline Williams....
(This was originally a photo failure as she accidentally had her eyes closed for the pic, but hopefully a little photoshopping makes it look okay!)
