Watcher’s Maika Monroe Talks Becoming A Modern Scream Queen Amidst The Recent Horror Revival

When it comes to horror movies, the genre just wouldn’t be

the same without its scream queens and final girls.

You have your all-time greats like Jamie Lee Curtis, Sigourney

Weaver and Neve Campbell, but in recent years with the horror

revival, we’ve met a new generation of actresses who frequent the genre, including Maika Monroe.

She’s, of course, best known for her 2015 breakout role in It Follows,

and the actress she continues a streak within the genre for Watcher,

she is discussing her journey in being considered a modern scream queen.

CinemaBlend spoke to Maika Monroe and new director Chloe Okuno about the upcoming horror movie Watcher.
