Here is a short review of "Watcher" movie plot summary.
American Julia (Maika Monroe) moves to Bucharest with her husband, Francis (Karl Glusman), who takes a marketing job there. Francis, whose mother is Romanian, is fluent in the language, but Julia is not. The couple move into an apartment building with a large picture window. Julia immediately notices a man looming in a window from the building across the street. While Francis works long hours, Julia attempts to familiarize herself with the city, and begins learning Romanian. However, she is continuously unnerved by the man in the window, whom she notices watching her on a daily basis.
Julia's fear heightens when she learns of a serial killer, dubbed "the Spider" by local media, who is decapitating young women. While walking through the city one day, Julia senses a man is following her. She enters a movie theater in an attempt to evade him, but the man follows her inside and sits directly behind her. In a panic, Julia exits the theater and walks to a nearby market, where the man also follows her. She manages to flee through a back exit. That night, Francis finds Julia rattled by the incident, and, at his suggestion, they visit the market to review the security footage. They find footage of the man and Julia in the store, but Francis is unconvinced that he was stalking Julia.
Julia finds some comfort in her neighbor, Irina (Madalina Anea). While the two have drinks together, Irina'a ex-boyfriend Cristian (Daniel Nuta) knocks on her door, but she makes him leave. Irina shows Julia a pistol Cristian gave her that she keeps for protection in the drawer of her coffee table. Later that night, Julia returns to her apartment and confronts the man in the window by returning his stare. She waves at him, and he waves back. Convinced that the man in the window is the same man who followed her, Julia calls the police. Francis accompanies an officer to the adjacent building to speak with the man, whom they learn is named Daniel Weber.
