edit Skinfan13's useless opinion of you article...

Humour: 4 I didn't read the background for this article. Basically, any random person who views this article isn't going to have the background context either, so I'm judging this article on its own merits. It's not like the article doesn't have the potential to be good, but the humor is simply below average. Basically, I've seen this article before, in a number of forms. So basically, if I see this concept again, it has to be pretty darn good and well played out. This is simply like everything else: the article's "narrator" is someone watching the reader and is going to get them (of course, using {{USERNAME}} is a must. The bloodsplatter image is of course used at the end centered without the thumb option in order to imply that you the reader has been attacked/killed. I'm not saying this is technically a bad approach, but the fact that I've seen that in at least four other articles really detracts from it.

With all of that said, there isn't much here that made me chuckle. This middle part, "Oh but that's no reason to be scared! You should instead be terrified. I'm serious though really, don't cry. It's only death! It happens to everyone! Of course this is a horrible, mutilating, slow and painful death... But that's besides the point." is the part I enjoyed the most. Other than that, not much stood out. Overall, a little below average.

Concept: 6 Once again, this format, style, and concept has been attempted numerous times on Uncyclopedia. You've done it ok here, but for the most part I'm not a fan of this article style. I'm not sure if it's because I've seen it so much, or whether it's a result of the fact that it just simply doesn't resonate with me. Regardless, I remain ambivalent. The second thing is that I don't necessarily understand the reason why a page called "I'm stalking you" is necessary. Perhaps this page could be renamed something better?
Prose and formatting: 6.5 The all red text serves a point, but is visually annoying. secondly, I don't understand the large 8-bit man break-dancing at the bottom. I also don't understand why you've linked the title to a VFH page... I realize it provides context, but this is very much an inside joke... Therefore, people on the outside (like me and potential readers) are just scratching our heads...
Images: 4 I like the eye poking through the white at the top, but the bloodsplatter is an Uncyc cliche, and the breakdancing guy makes no sense. No captions to rate, so that's that.
Miscellaneous: 5 simply average. It's an inside joke article that's probably better left in namespace rather than mainspace. It won't make much sense to people, even with a little context. There are some funny bits to it (as I pointed out) but overall, nothing too impressive.
Final Score: 25.5 I work on it a bit more if you want this mainspaced. otherwise, I'd keep in in namespace and list it in the "inside jokes" article category.
