Watcher is a minimalist horror film shot in Romania in the spring of 2021. The film’s director, Chloe Okuno, has worked on short films and made the Storm Drain segment of the Shudder horror anthology. She is an experienced director and knows how to create a slow burn without being overbearing.
Despite the fact that thriller/horror films usually are not embraced by mainstream critics, eight of nine film critics gave Watcher high marks. In fact, one of the movie’s most recent reviews in Harper’s Bazaar praised the movie’s strong performances, especially from Monroe’s likable character. Throughout the film, Monroe manages to navigate the idiosyncrasies of the people around her, despite being an expatriate.
While Watcher is not currently available on Netflix, it may find a home on other major streaming services in the future. It is currently distributed by IFC Midnight. It may wind up on the horror-thriller streaming network AMC. Shudder, another popular streaming platform for horror and thrillers, has not mentioned the film in its lineup yet.
Watcher will be released in theaters on June 3, 2022. It screened at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival and SXSW Film Festival. While there is no information on a digital release, Blu-rays and DVDs generally release three to four months after a movie hits theaters. So the physical media may be available as early as September or October 2022.
