WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Julia (Monroe) moves with her husband Francis (Glusman) from America to his family’s native Romania when he gets a new job. Unable to speak the local language, Julia initially finds herself alone, but whilst people-watching from her picture window, she appears to spot an unknown figure looking back at her from the opposite building. Soon, she begins to feel as though she is being followed by the figure, which puts her on a dark path…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

That feeling of being watched is played into by filmmaker Chloe Okuno for this creepy psychological thriller, starring Maika Monroe as someone being followed by a very different, but equally dangerous entity.
