The Place For The Latest Movie Reviews
Angela is an ordinary high school student, interested in parties and boys. But when she meets a troubled college kid named Chad, the two, and their families, become involved in an angry, violent skirmish of power and control.
Angela is 16 years old when she meets 21-year-old college student, Chad at a party. They hit it off and before you know it she is pregnant. The film doesn't go into a lot of detail on Angela before she makes this very bad decision but you take it that up till now she has been a good kid and student so you immediately feel for her. Chad on the other hand comes from a broken road and his mother is serving time in prison of armed robbery if though he tells Angela that his mom is dead. it doesn't take long for Chad to show his true colors, he is a violent, psychotic who is hell-bent on having Angela and their child with him regardless of what her parents say or do to stop him from coming around including issuing him a restraining order to keep away.
To go into anymore details here would only ruin the film and its few surprises so I am not going to go on about the story here. "Stalked at 17" is a made of Lifetime channel movie so you should know ahead of time what you are in for here as far as story and production goes. I have seen a few of the channel's movies in the past and they seem to be hit or miss but luckily this one is a bit better than most both in story and acting. I'm not going to pick out any one actor here, instead I can say that Taylor Spreitler, Chuck Hittinger, Brian Krause, Linda Purl and Jamie Luner all give very good, strong performances in the film.
So the bottom line here is that I did enjoy the film and the story and characters kept me interested. I also think its a hard film to recommend to buy unless you are a big fan of Lifetime and its films but I at least recommend a rental. In case you are a fan you can order the DVD HERE.
As someone that doesn't go out of his way to watch a Lifetime channel movie I have to say that I did like this one and found it to be enjoyable and a good way to pass some time.
