“We need to move on…”
I’ll Be Watching released on May 2nd 2023 on Demand. The sci-fi thriller film stars Eliza Taylor and Bob Morley. It runs for approximately an hour and thirty-five minutes.
After her sister is murdered, Julie moves into a new home with her tech-genius husband, but when he goes away on a business trip, she fears someone may be trying to break in to do her harm.
Here is the trailer:
I’ll Be Watching attempts to breathe new life into a familiar premise with two likable leads, but does it do enough to earn a watch? Let’s find out…
Eliza and Bob…together again!
Well, they are married in real life, but I absolutely loved them both on The 100 so I was super excited to see them in this film. Their characters were a little different than I expected and part of me was screaming for Eliza to unleash her inner Wanheda on everyone, but it was really nice to see them on the screen again and I hope that they work on more projects together soon!
Picks up toward the end.
It took a while to get there, but the last thirty minutes of the film was as intense as it could get and I appreciated a few of the twists and reveals thrown our way to prevent this film from becoming completely predictable and stale. Sure, it was ridiculous and there was one particular scene I could have done without, but if you enjoy Lifetime-esque films to watch on a Saturday night with a glass of wine, then you’ll probably find enough to enjoy with this one.
Really slow start.
The first hour of this movie was really hard to get through. As much as I love these two actors, there just wasn’t enough happening. I wanted so much more for this film. It had a cool concept (even though it’s been done before), but I think it played it safe. It tried with some of its twists, but it just didn’t do enough to fully captivate me. It wasn’t the worst thing I’ve seen. It just could have done a lot more…
So am I in or out?
I’m 50/50 on this one…
Heavy on the Lifetime thriller tropes, but it does have some redeeming moments.
I just wanted a lot more for Eliza and Bob…

DON’T TAKE THE JOB…
It was only supposed to be temporary…but when Olivia Crewe accepts a new position that seems too good to be true, she soon discovers that twelve other girls previously had the same job as her. Only none of them lasted for more than thirty days. No notice. Nothing…right before they mysteriously disappeared without a trace.
