Experience the Terror and Mystery of “The Watchers” in Ishana Night Shyamalan’s Debut Film – Now Showing

Explore the eerie and mysterious world of "The Watchers," Ishana Night Shyamalan's debut horror-thriller. Now showing in Philippine cinemas. Don't miss out!

Ishana Night Shyamalan, in her feature debut, weaves fantasy and horror together in “The Watchers,” taking audiences on a thrilling journey 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?” Shyamalan explains.

An Intriguing Setting: The Coop

To create the eerie atmosphere where the mysterious Watchers can observe the trapped individuals, Shyamalan meticulously designed 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.”

Dakota Fanning on the Unsettling Coop

Dakota Fanning, who plays Mina, delves into the unsettling nature of the coop and being one of the characters trapped inside. “The coop’s purpose is to keep these four characters safe from the Watchers, and to also provide a way for the Watchers to watch them. There’s a big window that turns into a mirror at night,” Fanning explains. “At first, we filmed mostly with the mirror in, so you were kind of forced to look at yourself, which was a little bit strange at first, but it was also helpful, because it added to the uneasiness that the characters might also feel.”
