I Killed You 'cause I Had To (2008)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
After a loner, Leo Breemer, who records his compulsive life through his video camera, misinterprets his vivacious next door neighbor's kindness for romantic love, he creates a pretend world with the unsuspecting woman as the sole object of his deadly obsession. Leo Breemer, under the guise of filming his new neighbor, Sima Reablo, for his "documentary", videotapes the trusting woman insistently. After stealing her trash and scavenging through it for "treasures", he discovers an engagement card and, psychotically, assumes it is proof of their forthcoming nuptials. Euphoric, Leo purchases a lavish engagement ring, honeymoon trip and "practices" the wedding day with the best man - his pet fish Opie. At the engagement party Leo is publicly humiliation by Sima's real fiance, Lukas; berated, furious and distraught, Leo murders Sima. And, post-mortem, they enjoy their first "date." However, the guilt of his crime becomes too burdensome, and Leo decides killing himself will be the only way to be reunited with his beloved so they can live happily ever after.
A one sided "love story" gone wrong. Very wrong.

- A one sided "love story" gone wrong. Very wrong.
- Leo's pet fish is named 'Opie'. The name was picked because original footage from _"The Andy Griffith Show" (1960)_ was purchased from CBS and the rights cleared. However, days before filming the gracious Mr. Griffith unexpectedly refused "likeness permission" - so it was Andy "86'ed" but Opie stayed.
The director conceived and wrote the screenplay based on a real-life stalker. In this case it was a woman and she dedicated her life buying expensive gifts for her "one true love" and showing up conveniently at every job and social event he attended. After several restraining orders she ultimately gave up by committing suicide.
