To escape this danger Aiden spends the next 13 years offline, in therapy and secluded anonymity. Who should Aiden trust in a web of deception where no one may be who they seem?

Cyberstalker also known as Offline is a made for cable Lifetime television film starring Mischa Barton who plays Aidan whose parents were murdered 13 years earlier. The killer was never caught which still taxes the detective in charge. Now she spends time as a reclusive artist but it seems the cyberstalker is back to terrorise her.
The film is low budget, quickly shot, formulaic but rather watchable if you switch your brain offline. The culprit could only be the characters we have been introduced to which could be the detective, her new boyfriend, the Svengali gallery owner or the wheelchair bound computer expert newly employed by the police.
I reckon there is no need for Columbo or Sherlock to solve this whodunit. There is plenty of silliness as our cyberstalker can hack into and control traffic lights for example. Still Lifetime know which audience to aim their films at, its female friendly with enough thrills to keep you mildly entertained.
