Madison Wolfe in The Man in the White Van

For decades, children have been warned about never talking to strangers and entering their vehicles. In the stalker thriller The Man in the White Van, a young girl tries to seek help from a stranger stalking her in a vehicle without anyone believing her story.

Here is the full synopsis:

Inspired by a true story, The Man in the White Van delves into the eerie underbelly of a seemingly idyllic 1974 Florida town, and follows the harrowing experience of young Annie Williams, a spirited girl whose carefree existence is turned upside down as she becomes stalked by an ominous man in a white van.

The tranquility of Annie’s world, from her love of horseback riding to her leisurely strolls home from school in the nearby woods, begins to crumble as the menacing white van inches closer and closer. As her parents’ skepticism increasingly grows, Annie finds herself psychologically isolated, and on Halloween night her worst fears materialize into a full-blown nightmare as she gets abducted.

The film stars Sean Astin, Alie Larter and Madison Wolfe.
