Thriller about a single mom and her daughter who move from a West Hollywood condo to a supposedly safe neighborhood (after the daughter is attacked in the condo by a neighbor). The troubles just continue in the new place. Who is the real stalker?
I've seen a good deal of Lifetime movies and without question, Stalked by My Neighbor is one of the most well crafted, especially in terms of how the trials of Neighbors are explored. The movie leans on the usual Lifetime melodrama, but also invests time to develop Jodi Allen as a believable, grounded character. This includes a masterful early montage that establishes the repetition, tedium, and denied relief she experiences. This is potent, realistic content that deserves more eyes, though of course, the movie soon pivots into a thriller. Even then, Jodi's mental health and vulnerable state are factors in how the thriller elements unfold, so while there's the melodrama, this is very well written and executed. The shifts between grounded and melodrama might seem like they'd be jarring, but that isn't the case and Stalked by My Neighbor isn't a wild, over the top ride like some Lifetime movies, more of a grounded thriller that dials things up when needed. Still a good amount of drama and a fun thriller, but it does a lot more than just provide a simple whodunit, so the movie deserves some solid credit. If you have even a minor interest in Lifetime cinema or just want to see a skilled take on the tribulations of Neighbors, give Stalked by My Neighbor a look.
