Laura decides not to let him win. She does not want to be his 'victim'. May be an official complaint about Farley would solve her problem? Written by
The stalking of Laura Black and subsequent murder of seven people and the injury of four by Richard Farley (February 16, 1988) and the three-year stalking and murder of actress Rebecca Schaeffer by Robert John Bardo (July 18, 1989) prompted California to pass the first anti-stalking laws in the country.

When Laura's boyfriend gives her the gun he tells her to fire all nine shots into Richard and states that there wasn't a court in the world that would convict her if she shot him on her own property, this is not good advice. While states' law vary about protection of self and property, one can use only the necessary force to stop an intruder (which simply brandishing a weapon might accomplish). If Laura shot Richard nine times, this could be seen by the court as unnecessary and unreasonable force, and it would make a claim of self defense difficult. See more »

This movie was very creepy to me because this kind of thing happens every day.
What I can never understand, though, is why people don't notify law enforcement when things start to get out of hand (one has to be careful with employers, as they're quite often "good-old-boy networks" only concerned about protecting their own, as well as covering their own behinds). If I were the personnel director and I heard comments like he was making, I would have notified the police as soon as he left! However, this film was made in 1993, before workplace and school shootings became fairly commonplace.....
That withstanding, I've never been a victim of stalking, but you can bet that I would also never let things get as far as they tend to do with many people (maybe it's the way I was raised, or because I have a pretty good self-esteem, who knows).
Nevertheless, I find these types of films much more captivating and closer to home than the usual stuff out there.
It's too bad that there are such people in this world.......
