Having recently abandoned her acting career, she finds herself frequently alone and unoccupied. One night, people-watching from her picture window, she spots a vague figure in an adjacent building, who seems to be looking back at her.

“Soon after, while alone at a local movie theater, Julia’s sense of being watched intensifies, and she becomes certain she’s being followed — could it be the same unknown neighbor? Meanwhile, a serial killer known as The Spider stalks the city.”

Meagan Navarro reviewed Watcher for BD, calling it an “atmospheric and stylish paranoid thriller.” You can also read a lengthy interview with director Chloe Okuno here.

David Cronenberg‘s new movie Crimes of the Future arrives in theaters everywhere this Friday, the Scanners, The Fly and The Dead Zone filmmaker returning to his horror roots.

In the film, “As the human species adapts to a synthetic environment, the body undergoes new transformations and mutations. With his partner, Caprice (Léa Seydoux), Saul Tenser (Viggo Mortensen), a celebrity performance artist, publicly showcases the metamorphosis of his organs in avant-garde performances.

“Timlin (Kristen Stewart), an investigator from the National Organ Registry, obsessively tracks their movements, which is when a mysterious group is revealed… Their mission – to use Saul’s notoriety to shed light on the next phase of human evolution.”

Crimes of the Future is a meditation on human evolution… the ways in which we have had to take control of the process because we have created such powerful environments that did not exist previously,” said Cronenberg. “[It’s] an evolution of things I have done before. Fans will see key references to other scenes and moments from my other films. That’s a continuity of my understanding of technology as connected to the human body. Technology is always an extension of the human body, even when it seems to be very mechanical and non-human.”
