The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising (2007) (part 10 of 14)
Cut back to casa de Stanton, where Will and co. have just finished Christmas dinner—as indicated by Mom declaring that she’s stuffed but they have plenty of turkey left (if you ask me, this whole movie is stuffed. And, hell, it’s a turkey as well. The perfect metaphor!).
Moments later, James shows up with Cute Chick in tow, and now introduces her as Maggie (she finally gets a name, nearly an hour into the movie. What a relief!). Maggie immediately reveals herself to be sweet and helpful as well as attractive, by offering to help clean up (yep, she’s evil incarnate). Will takes the opportunity to stare at Maggie some more (oh for fuck’s sake, get over it, you little dipshit!), and she catches his eye and smiles adorably (evilevilevil). We get an odd little moment of her walking around, with some decorations between herself and Will, always keeping her eyes on him, like she’s stalking him. Just in case we’re too dense to have already figured out her nefarious purpose, this is a subtle visual metaphor that shows us that she’s… um, stalking him.
