    I like it quite a bit. I read the book too, and although they are very different, I liked them both for different reasons.

    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!?

    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.

    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!!!
