Watcher trailer: Maika Monroe catches the eye of a killer in upcoming thriller

It’s been just over a month since we saw the teaser trailer for the psychological thriller Watcher, which will be reaching theatres on June 3rd before heading to the Shudder streaming service later in the year. Now a full trailer for the film has arrived online; you can watch the new trailer in the embed above and check out the teaser trailer at the bottom of this article.

The feature directorial debut of Chloe Okuno, who rewrote the original screenplay by Zack Ford, Watcher stars genre regular Maika Monroe (The Guest, It Follows, The Stranger), who is joined in the cast by Karl Glusman (Love) and Burn Gorman (Pacific Rim). The story follows

young married couple Julia (Monroe) and Francis (Glusman) as they move into a new apartment together in Bucharest, just as a citywide panic is brewing over a possible serial killer on the loose. Julia, who finds herself isolated in her new surroundings, becomes increasingly tormented by the belief that she is being stalked by an unseen watcher in the adjacent building. 

Watcher is an Image Nation and Spooky Pictures co-production. The film was produced by Roy Lee, Steven Schneider, Derek Dauchy, John Finemore, Mason Novick, Aaron Kaplan, and Sean Perrone. Stuart Manashil, Rami Yasin, and James Hoppe serve as executive producers.

Our own Gaius Bolling saw the movie when it premiered as part of this year’s Sundance Film Festival, and he gave it an 8/10 review you can read at THIS LINK.

Chloe Okuno previously directed the short film Slut and the Storm Drain segment of V/H/S/94.

Watcher looks interesting to me and I tend to be a fan of Monroe’s work, so I’ll be watching the movie at some point – probably once it’s available on Shudder. Will you be watching this one? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
