This movie incomparable to the book. However, thanks to Michael Ironside incredible performance this movie still rocks and entertaining no matter how many times I watch as it never gets boring. Thumbs up!?

Would've been interesting if they followed the book alittle more but it was okay. And they needed to show a longer shot of the monster.

Nothing spectacular but has some originality for an 80s movie. Corey Haim is a tad annoying with the squeaky voice and aww shux attitude.. The moussed up teenage hairstyle is in full effect. Best thing about Watchers is the dog and Michael Ironside being his normal scary self.. Not a must see but if you are at home sick with the flu, give it a look.

Never read the book, Found this on dvd for 3 so bought it anyway. Well I thought that its got one of the lost boys star's in it. How bad can it be?

Thought I was watching a made for TV production, I managed to watch the film through to the end.

I can't really defend my liking this movie, I grew up with it. I was a child of the 80's and three of my favorites were Silver Bullet, The Lost Boys, and of course.. Watchers. It is what it is, it's a low budget monster movie with rampant over acting, and a creature that is almost never shown. Personally I see that as a smart decision on the part of the film makers, if you're not one hundred percent confident in your effects department.. then hide their creation and only show it in quick cuts. I think it works well, the monster didn't even look that bad- and trust me I've seen a lot. Michael Ironside is fun as the villain, there are some decent scares, some graphic violence, and a moderate amount of suspense.

That sould be a negitvie 5 starts. For what they did to a good book the directors and producers that worked on this film should NEVER be allowed to work in the industry again!!!

Garbage! Rubbish! A few cool death scenes so I give it 1 star.

Another of those middle-of-the-road horror movies from the 1980s. This one has the likable Corey Haim (1971-2010) and a decent, if cliched, story of government experiments gone awry. Decent diversion for a rainy day.

Probably my favorite Dean Koontz story that isn't "The Oddkins", but this is also the last movie I would have wanted to see made in the 80s with one of the Coreys.

Read the book. Much better.

Worth watching for the Golden Retriever alone. That dog was awesome! Everything else especially the creature was lame except for Corey Haim. I can't believe they made so many sequels which I will never see!

Corey Haim + killer Sasquatch = f'ing awesome!

This was a pretty decent movie about a boy, played by Corey Haim, who takes in an escaped, highly intelligent dog, not knowing that it is being tracked by a creature that is truly evil.
Haim was at the peak of his popularity when this was made and he's always been good.
Decent thriller/horror based on Dean Koontz novel.

About as good as Cory Haim's heartbeat right about now.

Bad dialogue, ridiculous plot and a creature that looked so stupid they made sure not to show it until the end of the flick. If this is the best that Koontz can bring to the screen, I have been justified in never reading any of his novels.
