Feel the fear and the danger of the unknown in Ishana Night Shyamalan’s horror-thriller, “The Watchers”

Director Ishana Night Shyamalan weaves fantasy and horror together in her feature debut, The Watchers, and takes us on a mystery deep within the forests of Ireland. “The movie is very much a journey of uncovering this mystery—figuring out who these creatures are and what they want. Why are they being watched?”

To set the stage where the mysterious Watchers can observe the trapped individuals, Shyamalan started to formulate the look of the coop. “The coop is such an intriguing place, and it gave us so much to play with and think about when designing the build. In essence, it’s an observatory, but it works two ways—you are looking out, but you’re also being watched,” she says. “We were really drawn to the idea of almost a play with very theatrical elements and lighting—where any moment you are being observed and on display. That can be a very uncomfortable feeling. So, we leaned into brutalist architecture, and the colors and textures associated with it.”

“It felt like an unending pool of inspiration to draw from—that’s the dream as both a writer and director.” Ishana Shyamalan was riveted by A.M. Shine’s novel, The Watchers as she was searching for inspiration for her first feature film. Now The Watchers has been transformed into an enthralling horror-thriller, based on the novel and starring Dakota Fanning.
