On the Screen: 50 of the Best Stalker and Psychopath Movies


Like obsessed pursuers, psychopathic stalking films are a genre that just won’t go away. Admittedly, I would rather watch a good thriller or drama, than live through one. And unlike my real life, I can always press pause and head to the kitchen for a snack, when things get too intense or graphic for me to handle.

Other times, because stalkers are ridiculous idiots, I like to watch a good comedy making fun of a weird and kooky (mostly harmless) stalker.
