The Watch premiered on LMN tonight, and it is one of the creepiest movies I have ever seen on this channel. It is also excellent. Clea DuVall is Cassie, a graduate student who accepts a position as a fire lookout in a watch tower for one month by her lonesome. During this month of essentially total seclusion surrounded by miles and miles of vast forest, she will finish her thesis. At least that is the plan...

This TV movie is truly chilling. DuVall is an exquisite casting choice--her acting chops are top notch and it shows. Hunky James A. Woods is also quite good here, and Elizabeth Whitmere is realistic in the best friend role to DuVall. Scenic locations, a sharp score, and solid pacing elevate this flick above some other made-for-TV movies of late. Check it out if you happen upon it.
