Stepford Wives / 1975

Anchor Bay Entertainment has released two DVD editions of the still-timely 1970s horror film The Stepford Wives. This bare-bones first edition is to be avoided, while the second, more deluxe "silver anniversary edition" is to be applauded, as it comes loaded with extras and actually costs less while giving more to the consumer. Even if this edition comes in the widescreen letterboxed format, the quality is lower than the cleaner, crisper anamorphic widescreen transfer found on the silver anniversary edition. While this edition of The Stepford Wives leaves much to be desired, at least Anchor Bay quickly corrected its mistakes and released the silver anniversary edition.

The Stepford Wives 3.7 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 6 reviews.

In today's era of slasher movies and blood and gore, it is fun to just watch a silly movie. It wasn't made to be one of the worlds greatest mysteries of all times, but I think it does what it sets out to do, entertain. If you are a seventies kid like me, I'm sure you will enjoy it. I can't wait for the re-make. I bet Nicole Kidman will be great in it.

If you loved the horror film Jack Frost, if you listen to Kidz Bop cd's, if you think 40 days and 40 nights is the best teeny bopper movie ever, then you'll love this one. As for me, this charmer is the biggest waste of my time...what a shame they are making a remake

One of the creepiest movies of all time, especially if you are a professional woman whose husband has, at times, wished you were June Cleaver with enhancements! Ira Levin (Sliver, Boys from Brazil, Rosemary's Baby) articulates the thinking woman's nightmare! I can't wait for the remake (Nicole Kidman, Bette Midler, and co.)

For those of you who liked Rosemary's Baby, Psycho, and The Shining, you will definately find this one enjoyable. There is a lot of suspense, many laughs, and some great acting. The ending is a little wobbly, but other than that, a guarenteed good film.

first off, i've only heard about this movie from seeing trailers of the remake. finally got to see this and have to say it was interesting creepy and just wrong. had a feeling it would be what it revealed at the end. anyway basically its the story of what would happen if you arrived in a town with only perfect ladies that was like something from the 60s, thank goodness times have changed but others are still in the loop to be exact.

Some people may dismiss this film as a silly piece of fluff. It is, in fact, a darkly humorous commentary on chauvinism and the housewife. Beautiful Katharine Ross shines in this dark comedy about a woman whose two acquaintances become hausfraus obsessed with housework. This chiller is not for those of you who watch films such as this one for mindless entertainment. This is for all the women, whether they're housewives or not, who refuse to be June Cleaver-esque throw-backs. This is also for men who, hopefully, will wake up and accept women as equals and not appreciate them only for their looks or what they want to them to be.
