The Doctor Will Stalk You Now
It should have been a great day for Sophie (Brianna Joy Chomer - A Dangerous Date) and her boyfriend Ryan (Carson Boatman) as they have both been accepted to the college they wanted, But they end up in hospital when, whilst driving, Ryan crashes the car as he was busy sending a text at the same time. Whilst Ryan suffers a broken leg which ends his dream of a soccer career Sophie is in a more serious way and it is only thanks to renowned cardiologist Dr. Albert Beck (Eric Roberts - Assumed Killer) that she survives. But Beck has a dark side where he not only has a tendency of proposing to women he has only just met and then snapping in a volatile manner but he also becomes obsessed with Sophie, seriously obsessed as he becomes increasingly delusional when it comes to his feelings for her.
I am going to say spoiler alert as I can't resist going in to some detail when it comes to "Stalked by My Doctor" because it entertained me for both the right and the wrong reasons. So here we have a story about a doctor who is great at what he does but also has sociopathic side to him and he becomes obsessed with young Sophie especially when she starts confiding in him as Ryan, battling depression, decides to dump her. Up to this point "Stalked by My Doctor" is pretty okay but then we have the obsessed doctor kidnapping Sophie, making it appear that she died so that he can keep her all to himself. But wait as there is more, when he realises that Sophie will never love him he sets about making it impossible for her to leave him with a small operation to cripple her. Oh yes Dr. Albert Beck is one twisted medical professional. And yes this story is that twisted it becomes entertaining often in a bad way almost to the point it feels wrong to be entertained by it.
Now "Stalked by My Doctor" is full of the issues I and many expect from a Lifetime movie. The dialogue often never rings true, the camera work is often rushed and the majority of the characters could have been lifted out of a previous Lifetime movie as they have that generic feel. But what it also has is Eric Roberts who quite simply makes this movie with such an entertaining and over the top performance he makes it a lot more entertaining than it should be. In the scenes where Dr. Beck flips out be it making a scene in a restaurant after proposing to a woman he's just met to when he loses it when Sophie spurns his advances it is captivating and simply entertaining. But Roberts also makes Dr. Beck creepy as hell and that makes you all the more fascinated by him.
What this all boils down to is that "Stalked by My Doctor" is for the most quite a typical Lifetime movie with a story about an obsessed sociopath. But this also has a knock out performance from Eric Roberts who takes things to extremes when it comes to making his character an obsessed sociopath and that makes his entertaining and fascinating.
