Theme of stalking- By Samantha Recknell

  1. 1. Theme of stalking By Samantha Recknell
  2. 2. <ul><li>Stalking is a term commonly used to refer to unwanted, obsessive attention by individuals (and sometimes groups of people) to others. Stalking behaviours are related to harassment and intimidation. It may also be used to refer to criminal offences or civil wrongs that include conduct which some people consider to be stalking, such as those described in law as &quot;harassment&quot; or similar terms. </li></ul><ul><li>After researching a bit about stalking, was have considered this as one of our final themes for our opening sequence as it is possible and can be done very well. This is also a popular theme in thriller films as it is also seen as quite a psychotic behaviour which links the two themes together. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Stalking can be a terrifying experience for victims, placing them at risk of psychological trauma and physical harm. Common emotional consequences include depression, anxiety, loss of self-esteem, shame, hopelessness and a sense of vulnerability that can persist long after the stalking ends. This is what is going to happen in our film sequence as maybe the girl/boy could fear of her own life and also blames herself for the mans behaviour. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Different types of stalking <ul><li>Rejected stalkers pursue their victims in order to reverse, correct, or avenge a rejection (e.g. divorce, separation, termination). </li></ul><ul><li>Resentful stalkers pursue a vendetta because of a sense of grievance against the victims – motivated mainly by the desire to frighten and distress the victim. </li></ul><ul><li>Intimacy seekers seek to establish an intimate, loving relationship with their victim. To many of them the victim is a long-sought-after soul mate, and they were 'meant' to be together. </li></ul><ul><li>Incompetent suitors , despite poor social or courting skills, have a fixation, or in some cases a sense of entitlement to an intimate relationship with those who have attracted their amorous interest. Their victims are most often already in a dating relationship with someone else. </li></ul><ul><li>Predatory stalkers spy on the victim in order to prepare and plan an attack – often sexual – on the victim </li></ul>
