Fatal Attraction

This thriller from the late 80s is definitely THE creepy stalker film. Glenn Close plays a woman on the prowl, luring Michael Douglas away from his fairly happy home for a "fatal" affair. It does not take long for Douglas to realize his mistake, but he just cannot seem to escape Close. Things get lethal pretty quickly. It is the kind of suspenseful scary movie that even people like me (who hate horror films) can enjoy. Everyone should at least see this one once.

Cape Fear

I always love Gregory Peck, and this film is one of the few scary movies I actually enjoy watching. Peck plays a lawyer with the unfortunate task of putting criminals behind bars. When one prisoner gets out of jail, he makes it his sick and twisted mission to stalk and torture Peck's whole family. They do all they can to escape, but this mastermind can find them almost anywhere. I have heard the 1991 remake is even scarier, but I will always have a special place in my heart for the original.
