Part of the premise of Alfred Hitchcock’s classic Rear Window, and every film that has emulated it in decades since, is the idea that there’s no such thing as privacy. If your windows are open, it’s all public and fair game. In the movies, such snooping tends to lead to mischief or murder, and such is the case for the aptly titled The Voyeurs, which hits Amazon next month.
The leading duo for this is pretty great. Justice Smith (Detective Pikachu) and Sydney Sweeney (The White Lotus, Euphoria) star as a couple who get a little too nosey with their neighbors across the street, and kick-off something they’ll really wish they hadn’t started.
Behind the camera is Michael Mohan, best known for the Netflix hit Everything Sucks!. Ben Hardy (X-Men: Apocalypse) and Natasha Liu Bardizzo (Guns Akimbo) co-star.
The Voyeurs hits Amazon Prime Video on September 10th.
When Pippa and Thomas move into their dream apartment, they notice that their windows look directly into the apartment opposite – inviting them to witness the volatile relationship of the attractive couple across the street. But when they attempt to intercede in their lives anonymously, they unwittingly sets in motion a chain of events that will lead to disaster.
