An ordinary man suddenly finds himself the victim of persecution and surveillance in the new film The Watchers, a snappily paced suspense / thriller from Two Man Crew Productions, starring the very good Jeff Moffitt as the pursued ordinary Joe.
Moffitt plays accountant John Porter, who suddenly notices that he’s being followed by a number of gloomy individuals…all of them staring at him creepily and popping up everywhere in his life, with no explanation as to who they are and why they are pursuing him. Immediately, these “watchers” consume John’s every thought, with his fear rising and his trust in those around him very limited. Convinced of his plight, John goes to see shrink Dr. Orwell (Timothy J. Cox) but his prognosis is that John is paranoid and needs a little rest and relaxation. Things only get worse for John after his visit with Dr. Orwell.
I don’t want to give too much away, but I will say that the payoff is definitely worth it.
Moffitt and director Sy Cody White produced and penned the script, which blazes along sharply in the style of 24, where you don’t know who to trust or where the story is going to take you next.
The Watchers is an original, articulate and highly entertaining yarn with a lot going for it, including Moffitt’s compelling performance, nicely conveying John’s mounting tension, frustration and fear and he is ably supported by Cox and the entire supporting cast, each making the most of their appearances.
