My Thoughts On 'KEEP WATCHING'

Keep Watching' is a 2017 horror thriller.. Chandler Riggs (from The Walking Dead), Bella Thorne (The Babysitter, Amityville: The Awakening, Boo! A Madea Halloween) and Natalie Martinez (Under the Dome, CSI: NY, Death Race) star in this dud..

The story centers around a family returning home following a vacation only to become imprisoned by intruders, who have rigged the house with cameras and force them to play a life-and-death game, where the mysterious rules become clear as the night unfolds.

I remember seeing a trailer for this flick last year, at the time it seem pretty interesting (a found footage knockoff of The Purge).. I can assure you, the trailer is a lot better than the film..

For the most part I was totally bored with this flick, nothing really interesting happens in till about an hour in the film. The acting is pretty weak, especially by Natalie Martinez who plays the mom. The characters are completely clueless numbskulls..

Keep Watching was shot back in 2013 and you can tell because Chandler Riggs looks pretty young..

Back in 2015 Screen Gems acquired the film with plans to release it on December 2 2016.. But the release date came and went (that should tell you something).. The film was finally released in theaters for one night on October 31, 2017, than dumped on dvd last month..

There isn't much to this movie, I'm struggling to even talk about it.. The flick is basically people running around a poor lit house doing stupid things that poorly written characters do in bad movies.. I could go on and on about how stupid these characters are..

I'm giving 'Keep Watching' 3 out of 10

Rest of the cast: Carl Mitchell, Jared Abrahamson, Leigh Whannell, Matthew Willig, Christopher James Baker, April McCullough, Carlos Arellano, Savannah Douglas..

Written by Joseph Dembner and Directed by Sean Carter.
