But when Morgan starts calling Casey and watching her at work, she has a feeling something is wrong. As Morgan's behavior escalates and he begins to watch Casey every waking hour, writing letters and calling her dozens of times a day, she turns to the police for help. Only they can't help her, not until Morgan makes an actual threat against her. Distraught, Casey begins to withdraw from life. But when Morgan crosses the line and hurts the people Casey loves, she must find the strength inside herself to stop living in fear, and finally put a stop to this dangerous obsession.

Realistic and well acted
19 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The title doesn't indicate that this is an above average lifetime movie with good acting and a plausible story. For this kind of movie it isn't too overboard. It avoids melodrama or shock tactics and remains plausible and realistic. Of course it is a movie so there are some elements of the plot that feel like a composite to achieve a dramatic story. The plot is a waitress/writer becomes the stalking target of an obsessed mentally ill man who is off his meds. The difficulties in dealing with a mentally ill person and the limited recourse for stalking victims is presented in a no nonsense fashion.

The behavior shown is an accurate if extreme portrayal of the mental illness schizophrenia even tough the violence only occurs in extreme cases in real life. I have seen someone like that with the obsessive calling and rubbish rantings and papers. Will Estes does a good job of portraying the mentally ill person without overacting or melodrama.

Amanda Righetti gives a believable performance through the various stages and ups and downs of coping with the situation and the effect of the stalking on her.

Well done. Worth a watch.
