One of the horror movies premiering at Sundance 2022 next month that we’re particularly excited about is Watcher, which comes from director Chloe Okuno. The film comes in the wake of Okuno directing the popular segment “Storm Drain” from our V/H/S/94, which introduced the world to a new indie horror icon in the form of the sewer-dwelling Raatma.
Ahead of the world premiere, a “Meet the Artist” video from Sundance this week gives us our very first look at star Maika Monroe (The Guest, It Follows) in Okuno’s debut feature.
Check out the first-look footage below and expect more soon.
Karl Glusman, Burn Gorman, and Ciubuciu Bogdan Alexandru also star.
In Watcher, “A young woman moves into a new apartment with her fiancé and is tormented by the feeling that she is being stalked by an unseen watcher in an adjacent building.”
Zack Ford wrote the script, and producers on Watcher include Roy Lee, Steven Schneider, Derek Dauchy, John Finemore, Aaron Kaplan, Mason Novick.
