IN OBSESSED, a successful professional man with a beautiful wife finds his idyllic life threatened by a temp in his office who reveals herself as a stalker.
You have the perfect husband.
You have the perfect child.
You have the perfect house.
Now another woman wants what you've got...and she's obsessed.
In the frightening psychological thriller OBSESSED, Beyonce Knowles stars as Sharon Charles - a smart young woman married to handsome husband, Derek (Idris Elba) with a young son... and they've just moved into their dream home thanks to Derek's recent promotion.
Then one day Derek meets a new temp at the office: Lisa (Ali Larter). Beautiful, poised, and perpetually cheerful, Lisa is the perfect co-worker. Soon Derek finds her crying at work over a boyfriend and tries to comfort her. Then Lisa comes on to him at the company Christmas party, and he firmly tells her she's got the wrong idea. The next day she tries again. Lisa won't take no for an answer, and begins to come more and more unhinged with each and every refusal. Soon, Derek becomes terrified by how far it appears Lisa's obsession will go.
When Sharon comes home one day to find that Lisa has been inside her home, she's had enough... What started as an office flirtation culminates in a shocking, no-holds-barred, violent and bloody standoff between two women who both feel they have everything to lose - and they're willing to die to keep from losing it.
