Critic Reviews for The Watch

All Critics (1)

This efficient and tightly made (if slightly flawed) horror-tinged thriller has a terrific young cast and a zesty concept.

Audience Reviews for The Watch

It's TV Movie as Hell, no two ways about it. But hidden amongst that are a couple of moments of pretty genuine creepiness, something that eludes the majority of horrors. It's wrapped up so neatly that it's almost to the point of being confronting, again, not a staple in the horror genre. I just wish it had been a little more entertaining.

Interesting horror film which isn't quite what it appears to be! I liked it. I am surprised by the negative comments it has had. First of all, had better add that this is the Clea Duvall movie I am reviewing - I am not sure what is going on with the "cast" list and the 15 minute running time on the description, but judging by the other reviewers who seem to be reviewing the same movie I am, I would say it's one of the mixed up Flixster pages I see from time to time that somehow get meshed together with two different films. I picked this one up for $2 as I like Clea Duvall... wasn't expecting a whole lot, but was pleasantly surprised with it. Not bad at all for a straight to DVD movie - had good suspense and was really quite creepy. Also, considering much of it is just Clea in a cabin, it runs pretty quickly. I guess maybe I would have preferred if it stuck to what it appears to be, but I've seen a lot of that, and this made a nice change. Something a bit different. Definitely worth the hour and a half and the $2!
