The Watcher Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

A detective is urged on by the lunatic he's trying to put behind bars in this crime thriller. Joel Campbell ([[Performer~P67051~James Spader~jamesspader]]) is a police detective who has recently relocated to Chicago after spending eight frustrating years trying to track down a vicious serial killer who has been terrorizing Los Angeles. However, the slayer, David Allen Griffin ([[Performer~P59355~Keanu Reeves~keanureeves]]), doesn't want the game of cat and mouse to end; even though he previously put his murderous activities on hold, Griffin has started murdering young women again -- and is sending clues to Campbell, mailing him photos of his intended victims and urging Campbell to save them while he still can. Also starring [[Performer~P71267~Marisa Tomei~marisatomei]], Ernie Hudson, and [[Performer~P88897~Chris Ellis~chrisellis]], The Watcher was directed by Joe Charbanic. It marked Charbanic's first feature project after directing videos for a number of alternative rock groups, including Soul Coughing, Sonic Youth, and Reeves' band, Dogstar. The film was produced under the title Driven. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
