Movie Info

According to the NBC publicity packet, the made-for-TV Revenge of the Stepford Wives was "based on characters created by Ira Levin" -- specifically, those characters created by Levin for his fantasy-suspense novel The Stepford Wives, which was transformed into a theatrical film in 1975. On this occasion, plucky TV journalist Kay Foster (Sharon Gless) is stranded in the "idyllic" New England community of Stepford, populated exclusively by chauvinistic males and their eerily submissive and subservient wives. With the help of Megan Brady (Julie Kavner), a new arrival to the community who hasn't yet been "conditioned," Kay tries to learn the terrible secret behind the robotic Stepford wives -- and to foment a rebellion against the wicked menfolk. Revenge of the Stepford Wives first aired on October 12, 1980.

Critic Reviews for Revenge of the Stepford Wives

All Critics (1)

More along those lines, this is a surprisingly good cast for a made-for-TV sequel, and one that delivers, in its ending, a cathartic and pitilessly effective ending that would have had even the ancient Greeks concurring, "Yes, that was a good sparagmos."
