If you haven't read book, you'll probably enjoy this cheesefest.

Short and sweet ... Why does Hollywood think that a movie can have the title of a good book, yet not follow the story line?
D. Wynne
Other Koontz books, "Phantoms" and "Hideaway", were pretty good, and the TV mini-series of "Intensity" was very good.

"Watchers" opens with an experiment gone horribly awry. The United States military, always up to no good according to Hollywood, came up with a really groovy way to rack up a high body count during a war. Panadyne, one of those secret Department of Defense research laboratories, developed two organic weapons systems. The first ingredient of the project is a dog, a very intelligent dog trained to roam enemy landscapes looking for soldiers and, one presumes, innocent civilians. Whoever finds the dog and befriends the creature is in for the shock of their life, though. You see, Panadyne also created a hideously twisted organism capable of wreaking bloody havoc in a big way. A telepathic link between the dog and this creature--called Oxcom--allows the creature and the dog to communicate. Moreover, Oxcom hates the dog with all of its being, and will do anything to track down the canine and destroy it. This hatred is in fact the primary motivation for the creature to act as a weapon of mass destruction. The opening sequences show us the inevitable; the dog and the creature escape from the laboratory and head out into the good old U.S. of A. looking for trouble.

Teenager Travis Cornell (Corey Haim) discovers the dog after fleeing from a covert meeting with his girlfriend. Immediately impressed with the canine's intelligence, Cornell takes the animal home even though his mother won't allow her son to keep pets in the house. As Travis blithely drives away, his girlfriend's father stumbles over Oxcom and perishes in a particularly horrible manner. The girlfriend escapes largely unharmed and summons the police to the farmhouse.

I am a devout Dean Koontz fan, I bow to his decandence filled elegance. The first book I read from him was "The Bad Place" and I haven't looked back. This movie is a slap in the face to the man who has given so many incredible stories.

I am a fan of cheesey, B-horror moves (see original "Dawn of the Dead", but a teenaged Corey Haim as a 40 something ex-special ops man, get real. Trust me DO NOT READ BOOK FIRST!!! If you haven't read book, you'll probably enjoy this cheesefest. I would give this movie no stars, but Amazon won't let me.

Mr. Koontz, since you have more control over how you're books are translated now, I hope there is a time when you can pay correct homage to Furball.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful A Kid's Review on October 3, 2004
Based on the Dean Koonz novel, this is standard fun 80's horror. The concept of the two animal weapons is very inventive. An intelligent, genetically engineered golden retriever escapes from a military lab. Hunting him is the Oxcom, a curious baboon like monster(he actually looks for all the world like the title monsters from "Where the Wild Things Are"). The psychotic Oxcom is apparently tracking our lovable pooch by scent, and kills anyone who's in his path very efficiently. After all, he's a "combat mammal".

But wait! Yet another genetically altered killer here. A man played by Michael Ironside is tracking the beast as well, and killing all who come into contact with it(apparently for a govt clean up job).

Oh yeah, there's also Corey Please Give Me Work Haim as a teen who loves to feel up his girlfriend and cares for the dog. I don't know if this film was shot in Washington, New England, or maybe Canada, but it makes nice atmosphere.

The nasty italian lady's death was awesome.

Terrific purchase. When Corey passed I was so upset. I grew up with his movies and wanted to have movies of his to remember him by. So many sites were trying to cash in on his death and charging ridiculous prices for his movies. This same dvd was on another website selling for $180. Insane. This dvd came in practically brand new condition. It was nice to watch again after all these years. Thank you for the memories.

Watchers
---------------------
The military has devised a pair of biological weapons to use in tactical assaults against the enemy: one, a super-intelligent canine unit used to locate and infiltrate the enemy, and the other, a mutant beast sent to seek and destroy the dog any anyone in its proximity. When one of the dogs escapes and aligns itself with a high school student, it is up to a trained assassin to find the two and stop the killer Oxcom unit! WATCHERS is a fun, kid-friendly creature-feature from the late-80's starring Corey Haim as the film's eccentric teenager that is constantly on the run. It manages to strike an even balance between the campy humor involving the clever canine and the scarier moments when the Oxcom attacks from just off-camera in a series of bloodless kills. Most of the film's suspense is built on the final reveal of the creature when it catches up with Travis and Furface in the end, but the short lived battle is anti-climactic. Michael Ironside makes an appearance as the ruthless N.S.O. agent, living up to the typically sadistic villains he has portrayed in other films. Along with its sequels, WATCHERS makes for an entertaining monster movie with plenty of safe thrills!

Watchers 2
----------------------
WATCHERS 2 is an unrelated sequel featuring another Oxcom unit and its clever canine companion that are released from an experimental laboratory by a group of animal rights activists. The dog links up with marine facing a court-martial, and the two attempt to outrun the military officials and the killer beast that will stop at nothing to destroy its target.
