He’s Watching is a 2022 American horror film about two siblings who play a series of pranks on each other that soon turns sinister.

Written, co-produced, photographed, directed and edited by Jacob Estes (Don’t Let Go; The Details; Mean Creek). Also produced by Iris Serena Estes, Lucas Steel Estes and Gretchen Lieberum.

When happy-go-lucky siblings Iris and Lucas are left alone while their parents recover from an illness, a series of playful pranks they play on each other escalate when they start receiving unsettling images and videos on their phones. As the incoming messages become increasingly nightmarish, Iris and Lucas realise something sinister has taken root in their home…

“The sheer passion and love for filmmaking, that you feel from everyone involved is definitely enough reason to check out this movie. Just be ready to enjoy one part more than the other. For me, the first part of He’s Watching was at a 4 out of 5 level. The last part was only at 2 out of 5 for me. Heaven of Horror

“As supernatural found footage films go, this shot-on-phone project boasts more surreal elements than many, and delivers some creepy visuals. Iris and Lucas are realistic in their portrayal of young siblings who find common ground after blaming each other for weird incidents, and their characters are true-to-life and genuinely likable, or at least easy to sympathize with.” Horror Fuel

“The lighting is amazing in this film because it shows us how little the siblings must work with, as well as the unexplained moments surrounding it. In many other films, this would be seen as a negative, but the dimly lit scenes add so much more to the movie. When it comes to the images they are put through, there are some disturbing creations added in.” 4 out of 5, Movie Review 101

“Mostly we get some creepy-looking figures, played by the director or his wife Gretchen Lieberum […] There’s almost no action at all, which means there’s little to distract the viewer from He’s Watching’s lack of plot. With a tighter plot, it might have been an effective mood piece. But as it stands it’s more interested in being weird for the sake of being weird…” 2 out of 5, Voices from the Balcony
