The Number 1 Horror Movie On iTunes Is An Unmissable Indie Chiller
Will you be watching?
We’re always interested in keeping tabs on horror movies topping the charts. But we’re especially interested when said horror films are indie releases. Today we are happy to announce that Chloe Okuno’s Watcher is sitting comfortably on top of the iTunes charts in the USA.
This slow-burning horror event stars Maika Monroe (It Follows, The Guest) in yet another career-defining role for the genre icon. If you have yet to set your eyes on this indie chiller, check it out this weekend. It will keep you guessing. See the full iTunes Horror Top Ten List below.
In Watcher, Julia (Maika Monroe) joins her husband (Karl Glusman) when he relocates to his family’s native Romania for a new job. Having recently abandoned her acting career, she finds herself frequently alone and unoccupied. One night, people-watching from her picture window, she spots a vague figure in an adjacent building, who seems to be looking back at her. Soon after, while alone at a local movie theater, Julia’s sense of being watched intensifies, and she becomes certain she’s being followed — could it be the same unknown neighbor? Meanwhile, a serial killer known as The Spider stalks the city.
Watcher had its world premiere at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival and opened theatrically on June 3rd from IFC Films. Dread Central’s own Chad Collins saw the title out of Sundance where he called it “sensational” and “bone-chilling”. Read his full review here.
Writer/director Chloe Okuno’s work also includes writing a remake of Audrey Rose for Orion Pictures and writing and directing a segment of the anthology series V/H/S/94.
