IFC Midnight has released a brand new poster and trailer for the upcoming psychological thriller, WATCHER. Make sure you check it out in the player below and let us know what you think!
In WATCHER, Julia (Maika Monroe) joins her husband (Karl Glusman) when he relocates to his family’s native Romania for a new job. Having recently abandoned her acting career, she finds herself frequently alone and unoccupied. One night, people-watching from her picture window, she spots a vague figure in an adjacent building, who seems to be looking back at her. Soon after, while alone at a local movie theater, Julia’s sense of being watched intensifies, and she becomes certain she’s being followed — could it be the same unknown neighbor? Meanwhile, a serial killer known as The Spider stalks the city.
The film stars Maika Monroe (It Follows, Greta), Karl Glusman (Love, Greyhound), and Burn Gorman (The Dark Knight Rises, Enola Holmes).
The film is directed by Chloe Okuno (V/H/S/94, Slut). The screenplay was written by Zack Ford and Chloe Okuno.
WATCHER had its world premiere at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival (where you can check out our review and interview with Director Chloe Okuno), and was most recently screened at the 2022 SXSW Film Festival.
WATCHER will open theatrically on June 3, 2022, from IFC Films, and then will be available everywhere you rent movies starting on June 21, 20222. Shudder will take the first streaming window of the film.
