This creepy thriller about the women of Stepford, Connecticut, has been as hard to find as, well, a good floor wax. Initially panned by feminists and critics, the camp cult classic twists and turns as two bored housewives set out to determine why their dolled-up counterparts love to cook and clean so much — and just what are the husbands up to at that creaky mansion?
