Stalker

By Brandon Ladson with 6.2

thriller · Short Films

The title itself establishes a horizon of expectation for the viewer. We are then taken into the morning routine of a man who gets ready for work.

While we may still be making up our mind about whether he is the stalker or the stalked, another character makes their presence known. Nicole has turned up on the doorstep of her unsuspecting neighbor Robin with a request. Prima facie, the request is harmless enough; Nicole simply wants to hitch a ride to work with Robin. However, it soon devolves into something terrible.

The short narrative is well-intentioned, but remains marked by a few rough edges. A more firm control on the execution of the ideas would help similar projects in the future.
