What are the best movies you know of that have themes of stalking/cyber-stalking? Preferably thriller/horror/drama/crime.

My recent personal favourite is 'Unlocked', it's a 2023 Korean thriller-horror and I found it surprisingly suspenseful with many plot twists. It's currently on Netflix!

TV shows are welcome as well

First one that came to mind for me. Robert DeNiro, Wesley Snipes, directed by Tony Scott. It's really trashy, and I mean that in a good way.

Nolan's 1998 film "Following".

Caché is a 2005 film about a French couple who is being stalked. They keep finding tapes on their porch that shows them under surveillance.

The Conversation directed by Francis Ford Coppola, sort of stalking but best thriller movie.

Watcher is great. A nice slow burn horror movie.

Movie or show? Because the show was a massive pile of dog shit

The movie starring Maika Monroe. It's on Shudder. Definitely not the Netflix show.

Hush was great. Not really too much about a stalker but someone who wants to kill a deaf woman. Be My Cat: A Film for Anne is kind of stalker-ish but is absolutely a wild ride.

Actually another Korean film, I Saw The Devil.

Its interesting because the stalking goes the other-way.

Not a movie, but the TV show "You" does this quite a bit, and quite well, at least early on.

Play Misty For Me. Clint Eastwood as a DJ stalked by a fan.

Rubberneck. It's less about stalking than infatuation. It's really well made, is directed by and stars Alex Karpovsky from the show "Girls".

If you wanna watch something International, then there is an Indian movie called 'Darr' (Translates to 'Fear'). And it's the exact kind of movie you're looking for. It has a slow start but it's definitely worth a watch. The antagonist is an actor called Shahrukh Khan and he's internationally recognised as one of the best actors in the world (He is the only Indian actor to be on Empire's Magazine of Top 50 actors of all time.) So you'll definitely enjoy.

Edit: It's on Netflix.

I think the first movie of Christopher Nolan is about something like that: Following (1999)
