Watcher

Evil wants to be seen.

As a serial killer stalks the city, a young actress (Maika Monroe, who made waves as an indie arthouse horror “It Girl” in movies like IT FOLLOWS and THE GUEST) who just moved to town with her boyfriend notices a mysterious stranger watching her from across the street in this terrifying thriller.

“A stunning gaslighting whodunit, [with] a blood-curdling villain for the ages.” (Harper’s Bazaar)

“WATCHER benefits from director Chloe Okuno’s chilling grip on the material — and Maika Monroe’s terrific work in the leading role.” (Rotten Tomatoes)

“An expertly bone-chilling, paranoid thriller.” (Dread Central)

“WATCHER is a dark, smart treasure of a film, with the collaborative energy of Okuno and Monroe very much at the heart of what makes it such a compelling viewing experience.” (Women on Film)

“A film that sustains a viable ambiance of dread simply via someone looking out the window and shopping for groceries.” (Hollywood Reporter)

“An old-fashioned thriller with a modern heartbeat, an announcement of Okuno as a major talent to watch.” (RogerEbert.com)
