The new Lifetime movie this week is Stalker’s Prey, a thriller featuring Poltergeist actress Saxon Sharbino. The new movie debuts on Saturday, March 25 at 8 p.m. ET. Read on for a preview of the movie that centers on one of Lifetime’s favorite subjects.

Stalker’s Prey, which is listed on IMDb as Hunter’s Cove, stars Sharbino as Laura, whose life is changed when she is attacked by a shark on her 18th birthday. Her boyfriend is killed, but Laura is saved by Bruce (Mason Dye), who falls in love with his Damsel-In-Distress. She’s still not over her dead boyfriend, so Bruce decides to stalk Lauren because he feels like she owes him for saving her life. Unfortunately, Lauren’s family only sees Bruce as a hero, not a stalker.

The film was directed by Colin Theys, whose credits include The Murder Pact, Deep in Darkness and Dead Souls. It was written by John Doolan, who collaborated with Theys on Lifetime’s Whishin’ and Hopin’, as well as Dead Souls and Remains.

As she recovers, he becomes a local hero for his bravery. As the dust settles, Bruce seems smitten with his damsel in distress, but Laura is not ready to move past the boyfriend she lost in the attack. Bruce shows up in more and more places in her life, but her friends and family can’t see the hints of obsession that she starts picking up from her dreamy rescuer. When she tries to tell him no, she winds up being stalked by a local hero who believes that she owes him her life.”
