The Watcher or Disciples is an incoherent, nudity sown cult star cameo fest that's so cheap and hopelessly overambitious, i was flawed by not seeing a David DeCoteau credit attached to it. One one hand you have excessive sexualised gore and violence which gave the film some satanic majesty about it. On the other hand, Tony Todd is decapitated by CGI so bad, it exits his body in the form of a glowing stream of piss and colours the sky the most crimson red After Effects will allow. What The Watcher gets right is it's intriguing concept and aforementioned practical effects. Everything else from the camerawork to the overwritten dialogue reeks of amateur hour. I feel like a lot of good will and commitment from both actors and special effects artists was wasted here. The scenes of torture are outstandingly plentiful and gratuitous and gave the film some flavour, but everything else feels like a boring afternoon in the director's house. The Watcher is a clumsily assembled mess of a movie which makes Six Angels look like The Ninth Configuration. It has good work from a number of horror icons and the gore is impressive, but the film overall is too wordy, too interior heavy and has a very uneven pace that will try the patience of nearly everyone who will watch it.
A dark twisted apocalyptic shocker about a group of humans and demons who must band together to fight for the fate of humanity. When an ancient prophecy unleashes an evil spirit, hell is brought upon the world.
