To celebrate the release of WATCHER – released on DVD & Blu-ray 6th February – we have a Blu-ray up for grabs!
The debut film from Chloe Okuno is a sleek, remarkably assured thriller that puts a thoroughly modern spin on Hitchcock’s classic Rear Window. Featuring a superb cast including Maika Monroe (It Follows), Karl Glusman (The Neon Demon) and Burn Gorman (The Dark Knight Rises), WATCHER was nominated for awards at Sundance and SXSW festivals, and won Best Feature at last year’s Boston Underground Film Festival.
The film features a really outstanding central performance from Monroe (who shot to fame in the horror phenomenon It Follows in 2014), as a young woman who begins to think something is amiss when she spots a lone figure staring at from the window of a neighbouring flat. Recalling Mia Farrow in Rosemary’s Baby, Monroe is note-perfect as a woman in alien surroundings, plagued with lurking anxiety, who can’t convince anyone, not even her husband, that there is something wrong. Is she imagining things, or are her ever-mounting fears warranted?
With the forbidding Bucharest locations recalling the cold Venice of Don’t Look Now, a sense of unease from the outset, a wonderfully atmospheric score by the brilliant Nathan Halpern (Emily The Criminal), and the tension escalated almost unbearably in the creepy and brutal climactic scenes, WATCHER is a sleek, superb thrill ride of a film. If you enjoyed the recent, similarly themed Barbarian (about a young woman who has trouble getting anyone to believe her that something is awry) then you’ll want to watch WATCHER.
