FBI agent Joel Campbell, burnt-out and shell-shocked after years spent chasing serial killers, flees L.A. to begin a new life for himself in Chicago. But five months later, Joel’s best laid plans are abruptly cut short when his new hometown becomes the setting for some particularly gruesome murders–murders that could only have been committed by one man: David Allen Griffin. One of Joel’s most elusive and cunning nemeses, Griffin has followed his former pursuer to Chicago in order to play a sadistic game of cat and mouse. Taunting Joel with photographs of his intended victims and leaving his crime scenes meticulously free of clues in order to keep the police at bay, Griffin derives as much pleasure out of watching Joel react to every movement as watching his victims die. But when Griffin moves into Joel’s inner circle, Joel must quickly find some way to stop him before someone close to him becomes the next one to die.
The Watcher – fantastic movie. I don’t watch many movie online in thriller category, but this one was awesome. If a movie can manage me to stay hooked on the whole movie online, that’s fucking impressive.
No movie ever has filled me with so much strange energy and gotten me so immersed in it. I did not know anything about this movie before, I did not even see a trailer, but I enjoyed it very much in the first place. The opening song still gives me goosebumps and increases the warmth of my body.
This director is great. With The Watcher online he seems to be setting himself some kind of a test – how far over the top can he go? I chose to load this wonderful movie in YesMovies so everyone now can see it online for free.
