31 Days of Halloween #22: The Stepford Wives

It's the most scariest time of the year once again, so in the spirit of the season, I will be featuring a favorite Halloween horror flick every day this month (click here to see my other selected films).

No, I'm not speaking of the horrendous 2004 remake that wasted the talents of Nicole Kidman, Glenn Close and Bette Midler. The only good thing to come out of that disappointing mess is that it made me love the original film even more. Released on February 12, 1975, The Stepford Wives is about Joanna (played by the lovely Katharine Ross), who moves with her family to Stepford, Connecticut, where she soon discovers that the suburban town has a deep dark secret involving the married men and their hyper-domestic wives. The film has a great supporting cast that includes the delightful Paula Prentiss, Tina "Ginger Grant" Louise, and Mary Stuart Masterson (making her film debut at age eight as one of Joanna's daughters). Besides the remake, three TV sequels have been made over the years: Revenge of the Stepford Wives (1980) with Sharon Gless and Don Johnson, The Stepford Children (1987) with Barbara Eden, and The Stepford Husbands (1996) with Donna Mills, Michael Ontkean and Cindy Williams.
