Yet Another Stalker Thriller - Yawn
20 October 2005 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

The plot of this TVM revolves around Jeffrey Quint who visits a bar and lets himself get talked into a game of liar's dice by a man called Neil Jones who he has just met and I think the producers might have a problem in getting the audience involved because this set up is difficult to relate to unless you play liar's dice in bars with strange men but I guess all the other plots like being stalked by a policeman who attended to your house after you've been burgled or being stalked by a nanny who looks after your children or being stalked by a flat mate have already been used as plots in films so this only leaves getting stalked by a man you've just met in a bar who plays a game of liar's dice with you as the premise for a story . I've no idea what liar's dice is either

As you might expect Jeffrey rants and raves to the police that someone is trying to kill him while he police don't take him seriously and why should they because we see Neil in a variety of disguises bringing flowers to Mrs Quint which is very nice of him . Well it would be if he wasn't a raving psycho . Why can't we see a film where a stalker is just stalking someone because it gives them a hobby ? I'm sure that's the one plot we haven't seen yet
