Mother and Daughter

Jill Schoelen and Shelley Hack
played mother and daughter in The Stepfather

Shelley in a screen shot from the cult hit movie The Stepfather which was released in 1987. Shelley played Susan Blake, wife to Terry O'Quinn's Jerry Blake, who was stepfather to Stephanie (played by Jill Schoelen.) The movie was a surprise hit and gained a cult following. It even spawned a two sequels (1989 and 1992) as well as a remake (2009.) But none of them captured the chills viewers got from the original which changed the meaning of "stepfather" forever.
