It had all the right elements, but...
11 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

I had no idea what "It Watches" was about prior to sitting down and watching it. However, it was more than enough that it was a horror movie to have me interested. And when reading the synopsis on IMDb, then I will admit that my interest was a bit more peaked.

The story in "It Watches" is about Andre, who is asked to house-sit a big house for a friend. However, he quickly finds that someone or something is in the house with him, as strange sounds and even stranger occurrences take place in the house.

"It Watches" did have all the right ingredients to make for a good suspenseful thriller / horror movie, however, it just turned out to be too generic and predictable; playing it safe on every parameter and giving the audience nothing new that hasn't already been done countless times before in other similar movies.

Director Dave Parker did however manage to set up a good atmosphere and had the movie progress at a nicely paced speed.

And actor Ivan Djurovic really carried the movie tremendously well with his performance. This movie was all his, given his performance, and he really outshone everyone else on the cast list. Now, I can't claim to be familiar with his previous work, although I have watched the 2011 "51" movie, but I can't recall his performance here.

"It Watches" is good enough for a single viewing, however, it offers nothing new to the genre, and chances are that if you are a seasoned veteran to the horror / thriller genre, like I am, then you will not be overly impressed with what you see here. This is the type of movie that you watch once, and then bag and tag it, never to watch it again.

I am rating "It Watches" four out of ten stars. And that below-mediocre rating is solely given because the movie didn't bring any surprises to the genre, nor did it bring anything new to the genre, and it was just too predictable.
