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.

Please Don't Consider This A Study Of Mental Illness
19 November 2012 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

I notice this is is called SHADOW OF FEAR but when it was broadcast in Britain it was called DANGEROUS ATTRACTION a title that indicates i's going to be a clone of a very famous film from the 1980s so SHADOW OF FEAR is probably a more appropriate title . What is also interesting is that the site doesn't indicate it's a TVM . This certainly has all the feel of a chick flick TVM of having a woman stalked by a male hence the woman's trauma is the centre of the film's focus . It's unfortunate that that her stalker is a young man suffering from schziophrenia which means anyone watching this movie who has no knowledge of real life mental illness might jump to the wrong conclusion all schizophrenics are violent people . In reality a person suffering from this psychotic illness is 40 times more likely to kill themselves than another human being . In thisrespect SHADOW OF FEAR is offensive in its portrayal of mental illness whilst at the same time being inoffensive in every other aspect which again leads me to believe it's a TVM , one that's not worth watchingfor the most part
