Tension and Release and appreciation for Watcher

Banes at 12:00AM, Sept. 29, 2022


Watcher (2022) is a fairly unknown new movie, I think, and I recommend it. Simple, well-made, and scary.



Might as well get an early start on the October celebration, here - the fall is my favorite season, for so many reasons, including the time to celebrate our love for the scary ...
