‘Kill or be killed’

Keep Watching is a 2016 American home invasion horror thriller film directed by Sean Carter, making his feature debut, from a screenplay by co-producer Joseph Dembner. The movie stars Bella Thorne, Ioan Gruffudd and Natalie Martinez.

In October 2015, Screen Gems acquired distribution rights to the film, changing the title from Home Invasion because there are already other films with that title.

It was originally scheduled to be released on December 2, 2016, but was re-scheduled to be released on March 24, 2017 and then pulled. Keep Watching will now receive a wide release on Halloween night, October 31, 2017.


Jamie (Bella Thorne) is a confused and problematic girl, hiding a secret. Her parents Carl (Ioan Gruffudd) and Betty (April McCullough) are divorced, but she never accepted her new stepmother, Nicole (Natalie Martinez).

During a weekend her family is imprisoned inside their own home by three psychopaths – anonymously under the names Mysterious (Leigh Whannell), Terror (Matthew Willig) and Creator (Christopher James Baker).

The family is forced to play a terrifying game of “Kill, Or Be Killed”. As the night unfolds, the game’s mysterious rules become clear, and the family realizes their nightmare is being streamed live to riveted viewers all over the world, who are compelled to keep watching… not knowing if what they’re seeing is real, or staged.”
