The original packaging stated the title as “Dean Koontz’ Watchers 3″. Koontz sued because he had nothing to do with the creation of the film. Koontz won and forced the company to place a sticker over part of the video’s package that covered the original title with the statement “based on the novel ‘Watchers’ by Dean Koontz” in much small print than was originally printed on the boxes.
The promotional packet for Watchers 3 lists the original “Dean Koontz” title. All four included publicity stills were captioned “From the New York Times Best Selling Novel by DEAN KOONTZ: WATHERS 3…” (The eight included color slides were not so captioned.)
