The psychological thriller Watcher will be reaching theatres on June 3rd before heading to the Shudder streaming service later in the year, and with two days to go until its theatrical run begins we’re proud to share an EXCLUSIVE clip from the film. Check it out in the embed above! Our own Gaius Bolling saw Watcher 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.

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. 

In the clip we have embedded at the top of this article, we see Julia trying to hide from the person she believes is stalking her.

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.

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