The Stepfather (1987)

Who am I here?

Years before he got his moment in the sun as the breakout star of Lost — my all-time favorite TV show — Terry O’Quinn was best known for this chilling slasher.

A blood-spattered psychopath barely holding on to the façade he’s a good-hearted suburban family man, he’s one small crack away from ruining another American dream.

Each time he finds a new family, our troubled father figure thinks, “This is the one. The one that works.”

But they never do, and then the knives come out, and the screaming starts, and Ward Cleaver warps into Norman Bates.
