They’re Watching

Showtimes

When an American home improvement TV show visits a remote Eastern European village in Moldova, the young crew thinks the lack of mocha lattés and free wifi will be the worst of their problems.

“Eye-popping comedy/horror … s**t definitely hits the fan.” – Blood Disgusting

But after their filming interrupts the superstitious villagers’ private religious ritual, the situation takes a turn for the homicidal, and the clueless Americans are about to discover that it’s all fun and games until someone accidentally calls the locals a bunch of “witches.”  And when the blood starts flowing, that’s when things get really weird. With They’re Watching, writer/directors Micah Wright (video game writer of  “Call of Duty: Black Ops II”) and Jay Lender (Emmy-nominated writer of “Spongebob Squarepants”), cartoon industry survivors, turn a classic horror premise upside down to create a fresh, funny and splattery twist on the genre. (Dir. by Jay Lender & Micah Wright, 2016, USA/Moldova, in English, 95 mins., Not Rated)
