Watcher 2022

Stream full movie Watcher 2022 on moviesjoy website in HD. In the slick and effective Watcher, a solid debut feature from writer/director Chloe Okuno, a young woman struggles to adjust to a new life as her husband takes on a new job. Much of this effective suspense/thriller is recognisable. There are nods and winks to Rear Window, Someone to Watch Over Me, It Follows, a splash of Halloween, a spritz of 1990s erotic thriller seediness, and a story in which a woman has the very real feeling that she is being watched and followed nearly every time she is left alone. Julia (Maika Monroe) is frequently alone. While her husband Francis (Karl Glusman) works from early morning to late at night, Julia is left to navigate a city she is unfamiliar with.

Okuno frames many early scenes without subtitles, effectively leaving her lost in translation and quickly engulfed in a city where she finds herself alone. Julia is frequently left in her spacious new apartment and randomly looks out their big picture window, heightened by a spooky score by Nathan Halpern. She quickly locks her gaze on a man in a window who is staring back at her (Burn Gorman). She averts her gaze, uneasy, until it happens again on another day. And then some. Julia begins to believe she is being followed by the man from the window as she searches for something to do. Julia becomes obsessed and terrified by the prospect of the curious neighbour across the complex after learning that a serial killer known as “The Spider” may have claimed several victims in the previous months.
