More than 10,000 people worldwide claim they're the victims of a vast organized surveillance effort designed to ruin their lives, a phenomenon known as "gang stalking." For those who believe they're constantly being watched—by the government, a secret society, or some other group—everyday activities like taking a walk or driving on the highway can become a nightmare.

On this episode of HYSTERIA, VICE meets up with a handful of Americans who claim their lives have been derailed by gang stalking to understand what serious consequences it presents. Then we hear from Dr. Josh Bazell, one of many physicians who believes the victims of gang stalking could be experiencing delusions.
