Someone's Watching Me is sort of the forgotten movie of John Carpenter's career. Someone's Watching Me aired back on November 29th of 1978, which was almost a month after Carpenter's career took off with the horror classic Halloween.

Originally John Carpenter wrote the movie as theatrical film, but Warner Brothers decided to make it a TV movie. In my opinion I think that was the right move. Even though this movie aired after Halloween it was actually filmed prior.

I have to admit I enjoyed this movie quite a bit, but I don't think it would have worked as well as a theatrical film. You can clearly though see flashes of the brilliance Carpenter would show through out his career. Despite his reputation as a filmmaker who uses violence, Carpenter aims more for suspense and tension. This is a TV movie so the violence will obviously be lacking, which in some ways I think is a plus. Carpenter had to create a certain amount of tension and suspense and rely on that to make up for the lack of violence.

John Carpenter has stated many times his love of Alfred Hitchcock and here he pays homage to the master of suspense with a movie clearly inspired by Rear Window. The screenplay by John Carpenter is well-written though there are some cheesy moments in the script. The structure of the script I don't think really works well as a theatrical film. Had it been a feature I'm sure there would have been changes made though.

As I stated Someone's Watching Me is one of the forgotten movies in John Carpenter's career; while watching this flick you can see the potential John Carpenter had and in my opinion very much lived up to.

This made for TV movie is just that, a made for TV movie . You won't find any carpenter music style in this or the intensity that most of John carpenters movie have . It's an ok film . It was filmed before the iconic halloween right after assault on precinct 13 . If you are a John carpenter fan like myself then check this out but like I said ... Made for TV movie.

While 'Someone's Watching Me' may not be Halloween, The Fog, or Escape from New York, it certainly delivers both thrills and chills. The story is not the most original; kind of like a reverse Rear Window where someone with a telescope is terrorizing someone across the way in another building. The police are helpless; what can they do to a crank phone caller?

The movie, as I've said, may not have the best story, but John Carpenter delivers a well paced and directed TV movie that would have pleased even the Master of Suspense himself. This film is scary and tense, and a definite purchase for any John Carpenter or suspense film fan. Highly recommended.

**Mild spoilers**

I have been a huge fan of EARLY John Carpenter ever since I was a kid. From the absolute awesomeness of Halloween, the grungy thrills of Assault on Precinct 13, the intense paranoia and pessimism of The Thing to the sheer junk heaven of Big Trouble in Little China, his early films are sheer cinema bliss. So when I recently saw that Someone's Watching Me, a TV movie he made right before Halloween, had been finally released on DVD a couple of years ago, I raced out to get it. The film stars Lauren Hutton as a young woman who moves to Los Angeles and finds a job at a local TV station. She moves into a high-end, high-rise apartment building that faces another high-rise. Soon after moving in she is stalked by someone in the other apartment building, although she is initially unaware that anything is amiss. Alright, I admit that this story outline makes this sound like a lame direct-to-DVD potboiler, but the fun in the film comes from its less predictable, even bizarre elements. First off, Hutton's character is really unlike any other main character I've seen; a real goofball, she happily chatters away to herself walking down the halls of her apartment building and makes jokes that other characters don't get or that cause them to squirm. The strange way in which she is stalked, which involves a series of gifts sent by a fictional travel agency asking her to guess the destination of her prize trip so that she can win it, also adds to its unpredictability. I also adore the scene where Hutton, sitting by herself in her car, is approached by a man who leans in and says "It's a hell of a life, isn't it?" then stumbles away, never to be seen again. Sadly the plausibility starts to take a steep dive in the final scenes as the inevitable confrontation is nothing you haven't seen a million times in many other movies. Still, I found the movie highly entertaining (enough that I watched it a second time the next night, something I never do).

A very good American "giallo" film
written and directed by John Carpenter.

I'm a John Carpenter fan and I'm surprised
that this film is overlooked when a discussion
of his films is engaged.
I'm also surprised that this was a television
production.
It is certainly good enough have
been released in theaters.

A clever killer stalking a woman
is not an unique plot,
but it is all in how it's done
and Carpenter does it right.
If you enjoy Hitchcock and Argento,
you will certainly enjoy this,
although it is not in that league.

The pacing is great.
Slowly building the tension
from beginning to end.
It gets better and better with
some virtuoso cinematography.

The very ending was somewhat
disappointing for me.
Not experientially which is excellent,
but rather the plot.
That is a subjective opinion.
I have no doubt that others
would defend it vigorously
and I can guess what their valid
arguments would be.

The only substantial flaw in the film
was the musical score.
It is standard canned TV movie music.
If this film was also scored by John Carpenter,
in his unique style,
it would have been several degrees better.

I would love it if Mr. Carpenter composed
a score for this film and re-released it
on DVD.

There is a notable discontinuity in the
circumference of a scanning telescope image
that is sloppy film-making/editing
and partially damages a great sequence.

I Love This Kind Of Thing:
Check out the reflection of the man's face
in the knife on the insert illustration.
Look at it up close and then from a distance.
Nice!

You will want to watch
"Someone's Watching Me"
more than once,
which makes it an excellent
addition to your collection.
