Recent movies have caught onto the way social media is changing our initial judgments of, and relationships with, others. In 2017, both Friend Request and Ingrid Goes West depicted obsessions born from internet interactions. Granted, in Friend Request (in theaters September 22) the stalker is a demon-witch — but she still goes through the usual avenues of Facebook feeds to track down her target.
But even if the social media component is new, movies have been dealing with the themes of obsession forever. So, with "Every Breath You Take" blaring in the background, get acquainted with some of cinema's most unforgettable stalkers. They certainly won't be forgetting you.
