Sean takes a look back at a movie that terrified him as a sensitive 15-year-old: the Corey Haim vehicle Watchers (1988). Based on a novel by Dean R. Koontz, Watchers is the story of a super-intelligent, genetically engineered dog who has a psychic link with another, more beastly creature. When both of them escape from a government research facility, they somehow end up putting 80's teen heartthrob Corey Haim and his family in danger. Listen as we give props to the genius of Michael Ironside, have a lengthy aside about the merits of the Sylvester Stallone movie Cobra, and figure out how you can make a monster movie without having a monster in your movie.
