Wow. That's all I have to say about this one. Scrolling through Spout.com today, I came across the following semi-trailer for I Think We're Alone Now, a documentary about extreme fans/stalkers of 80s teen pop sensation Tiffany that's debuting at Slamdance. It's without a doubt one of the creepiest things I've ever seen in my life. One guy in particular, who looks about 50, earnestly tells the camera that "Tiffany and I have known each other most of her life and we are in love with each other. And she's a great singer!" We later learn in the clip that Tiffany already filed a restraining order against that guy at one point, but that hasn't slowed him down a lick. We see him reading a document: "As a 16 year-old, Tiffany was forced to get a restraining order against Jeff Deane Turner -- they've got my whole name in there!"
Then there's another guy, who will remind you of the killer from The Silence of the Lambs -- seriously, he's maybe the scariest-looking guy I've ever seen. He has black and white glossy headshots of the singer all over his wall and we see him telling someone, in a very serious tone of voice, "My destiny is that I'm supposed to be with Tiffany." By far, the topper is a video clip of 30-something Tiffany at one of her sparsely-attended outdoor retro concerts, trying to get the crowd to sing along with "I Think We're Alone Now" and guess who is in the audience, singing louder than anyone else? Shudder. I think this might end up being one of the best horror films of 2008.
