Stalker is nothing to get to excited about & is NOT a horror film
First of all everyone should know this is not anything even close to
what you would expect from a film named "Stalker". It involves a writer
under pressure for her second book, her first was a #1 Bestseller so
people were eager to see what's next. The author, rumored to have had a
recent breakdown, has also had a very tragic childhood. We are given
flashbacks from what appears to be her childhood but it all doesn't
make full sense until near end. It is a short film at around 70 minutes
and I was getting kind of bored around mid point, but then the
unveiling of the classic twist which we have seen many times before. So
all in all it was a decent effort but was nothing to run out & try to
track down or pay to view for that matter. It was an average movie & I
had no problem spending some time watching it. I'm not really sure how
to rate it mainly due to it's lack of originality. I'll say 5-6/10.
However this is not a horror movie at all IT HAS BEEN MISLABELED there
is very little gore & very very little tension till the final minutes.
So if you're looking for that as I was, you will be sadly disappointed.
