ok movie of week..
27 April 2001 | by goya-4See all my reviews

story of Marla Hanson, a beautiful model who is stalked and ends up being knifed by her stalker..she later takes him to court to end her torment...based on a true story..is shocking in the story of stalkers and their victims..released close to the time when actress Rebecca Schaeffer was needlessly murdered by a stalker which helped change the laws not only in California but throughout most of the country and brought the issue out in public 6 of 10
