The Watcher, which debuted virtually at Sundance Film Festival 2022 has already been picked up by IFC Midnight and Shudder. Watcher is an eerie psychological thriller that banks on outsider hysteria. I’m also excited to see a full-length feature from Chloe Okuna, considering her contribution, “Storm Drain” in V/H/S 94 (2021) was the only segment I enjoyed.
The Watcher is set in the midst of a citywide panic over an active serial killer, as a young woman moves into a new apartment with her fiancé and is tormented by the feeling that she is being stalked by an unseen watcher in an adjacent building.
