I'm amazed that newb filmmaker Chloe Okuno - making her first full length feature film debut (with a few prior short films) as writer and director, created this near perfect little gem. Aside from needing to better direct some of her cast, her camera work and non-stop tension filled story could put some seasoned filmmakers to shame from what they've put out lately. This wasn't Hollywood-ish, and that's fine by me, but still managed to hold your attention, create enough suspense, and throw in some clever red herrings and twists, that only big Hollywood productions can create. Sure it could've had some more action and energy, but it was just right at 91 mins with the spot-on pacing. The cinematography was perfection as was the score. This genre has been filled up for some time, and although somewhat predicable and typical, it was just done right, as best as any pro could create with what they have. Okuno is certainly a filmmaker to keep an eye out for. I applaud her for this amazing little gem we all thoroughly enjoyed. A well deserved 8/10 from me.

An amazing B-film from a newb filmmaker.
Slightly short of being a great thriller
Wow, just wow. I had no expectations about Watcher, but it turned out to be really good.
Like seriously, everything worked so well up until the ending, which felt somewhat disappointing and didn't make much sense. It wasn't the worst thing they could've done though, so thanks for that.
Actual care was put into the film and it shows. All the elements they have are nothing new, really, but these blend quite well. The unfamiliar environment, the language barrier, the fear, and the feeling of being misunderstood and left alone by the careless close ones. Great acting, great atmosphere, great music. Just overall a solid thriller that tried to step away from cliches as much as possible.
I can agree that the pacing was relatively slow, but it only helped absorb the atmosphere of what was happening.
A split 7.5/10 could've been an 8.5/10 if not for the ending that felt a little too much, although I get the message.
I am looking forward to new movies from the director.
They don't have curtains in Romania?
Above average thriller about people looking out of windows. I wonder where I've seen that before? Of course the entire premise would fail if they'd only buy some curtains like normal people but they don't. Maika Monroe plays the damsel in distress but her character is a bit of a misery guts and spends most of the movie scowling, sulking or frowning. Burn Gorman is perfectly creepy. The movie itself is low key and by the numbers as if it was written and directed according to a check list but it's effective for all that. There's quite a lot of Romanian language so if you watch without subtitles you miss some dialogue but I'm not sure if you miss anything important.
i love it
When the snake rears its ugly head, you SEVER it!!!
CURTAIN FOR SALEEEEEE DM ME 50% OFF
after seeing a crime scene and knowing what is all about, She hyped herself up that she is being followed and turns into paranoia thinking it was her neighbor across from her apartment building. Turns out, her instinct was right. Movie is slow and not too bad... Most people love a happy ending so they put one, but I think ending should have been different. Great copy, FREEMAN.
wft...put a curtain man...
Good movie .Great ending
Why is this chick ALWAYS getting FOLLOWED!
Best movie ever
