In the Stepfather, intertexuality was a very important concept. One of the most important scenes in the film had a visual referencing from films like "What lies beneath".
In both films, there is a significant similarity with the stairs (mise en scene) that was used in the two films when the victims were trying to escape from their attacker.Also another important aspect of intertexuality used in the stepfather is the borrowing of the use of white bathrooms, bathtubs, shower and backround curtain from Fatal Attraction, What lies Beneath and Psycho. Also in the Stepfather when Daniel attacked susan and glass shattered on the floor this dilemna is also seen in Fatal Attraction.
