Scary to think this could happen to you!
9 December 2001 | by (Pittsburgh) – See all my reviews

It's overwhelming to know that a young girl of 14 was stalked by a 20 something man! And the worst part is the police did nothing. I sugest that young and middle aged women should see this movie because you never know if some one is watching you. After you have seen this movie you will know whow to deal with people like Curtis, look out for warning signs of a potential stalker an know how to protect your self!
