Paste Magazine - Jacob Oller
Watcher flourishes as it complicates its premise beyond the unknowable and faceless desires of a shadowy silhouette.

The Film Stage - Jake Kring-Schreifels
[Okuno’s] made a smart, controlled movie of pricks and gestures and tones that accumulate into a satisfying catharsis. And perhaps validated the urge to follow your gut.
70
Film Threat - Norman Gidney
This classically styled thriller plays on universal themes of alienation to deliver a punchy diversion with macabre tints and a love of the genre.

The Hollywood Reporter - Jordan Mintzer
In a genre movie climate marked by cheap thrills and easy scares — whatever gets us not to click on something else — it’s nice to see a film that sustains a strong ambiance of dread simply via someone looking out the window and shopping for groceries.

Variety - Jessica Kiang
Watcher, if it has an agenda beyond being a fun, shivery, fish-out-of-water chiller, is not so much a manifesto to Believe All Women as it is a reminder to all women watching to at least believe ourselves.
