11 September 2003 | tim-topping
class brit drama
10/10 Quiet british TV movie about a writer who befriends a young publisher through a novel he's submitted. The unsuspecting publisher becomes hooked on the novel's graphic dictation of how to stalk and murder somebody, becoming himself, a stalker and potential murderer. To his horror the publisher discovers the book isn't a work of fiction but a set of instructions the writer has given him to follow.
