Web Video / The Stalker
The Stalker (The Sims 2) is a collection of 6 horror movies created by user dan10093. It is made using The Sims 2
and is heavily inspired by Scream (1996)
, however it also contains elements from I Know What You Did Last Summer
. The films were originally going to end at the third sequel, but more or less continued on three movies. The series main character is Katie Barcley, a young woman who is continuously mentally and physically attacked by an unknown person in a white and black ninja suit, usually using those who are important to her. This method has also been used to torment Lori Yates, one of the survivors of the third film. As of 2013, five movies have been finished with the 6th one in production.
Tropes used in all films:
Tropes used in The Stalker
- Action Survivor: Katie and Adam
- Adults Are Useless: Then again, we only see them for about one minute in the entire movie.
- Bastard Boyfriend: Adam seems like this at first.
- Big Damn Heroes: Adam, who shoots Richard before he can kill Katie.
- Blonde, Brunette, Redhead: Kris is the Blonde, Jen and Katie are the Brunette, and Alex is the Redhead.
- Bound and Gagged: Well, replace "gagged" with "blindfolded".
- Broken Bird: Alex, after Kris' death due to them being best friends.
- Child by Rape: Katie. This is revealed by her father.
- Cruel and Unusual Death: Jason doesn't even appear for two seconds, and we already see his horrific demise (he was ripped in half offscreen). Jen's death ends with her being struck in the skull with a meat cleaver.
- Damsel out of Distress: Once again, Katie.
- Danger Takes a Backseat: Alex's death only shows the killer staring at her from behind the backseat before she is killed offscreen.
- Death by Sex: Reversed actually. Katie and Adam have sex before the massacre and are the only survivors.
- Decoy Protagonist: Jen. Many people were greatly surprised that she was killed. And quite brutally, I might add.
- Dumb Blonde: Kris is described as this by the creator. We see enough evidence in the opening.
- The Dog Was the Mastermind: Tom is revealed to be one of the killers.
- Et Tu, Brute??: Katie is understandably shocked by Tom and her dad's betrayal.
- Fainting: Jen faints as a side-effect of her spiked drink.
- Final Girl: Katie, although she's not the only survivor.
- Freudian Excuse: The reason Richard's after Katie is because she was a Child by Rape. Tom's reason is because he's obsessively in love with her.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Adam is slashed in the back with a meat cleaver by Tom, however he survives. Jen was also killed via cleaver to the head.
- Kill the Cutie: Poor Jen.
- Love Makes You Evil: Tom's motive
- Missing Mom: Katie's mother is gone on a business trip with her sister, Holly.
- Murder the Hypotenuse: Possibly why Tom murdered Jen.
- Nice Girl: Jen
- Offing the Offspring: Richard's motive.
- Official Couple: Jen and Tom. Katie and Adam. Kris and Jason.
- Offscreen Moment of Awesome: We really have to give some credit to the killers: Jason's death was both disturbing yet fascinating. They also manage to murder everyone at the party in one night! Wow.
- Parental Betrayal: Richard Barcley to his daughter Katie.
- Peek-a-Bangs: Alex
- Peek-A-Boo Corpse: Jason's body is placed in front of Kris' door in the opening. The Stalker hides the dead party-goers bodies in the garage. Katie also finds Jen's body in the upstairs bathroom.
- Too Dumb to Live: What does Kris do when she see's Jason's dead body? Runs upstairs, doesn't even bother to stop and call the police, and the place she hides? An open balcony that ultimately leads to her death and instead of getting up, crawls around on the ground. Nice escape plan, honey.
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Richard kills Tom fully knowing his plan won't work.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: Alex. Her death is only mentioned twice, and even then it's not officially clear, and she's not even mentioned again for the rest of the movie.
- Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Richard. He only wants to live a peaceful life with his wife and daughter. The way he plans to do it however is out of the question.
