Exclusive Clip: 'They're Watching' puts a twisted spin on the 'House Hunters' formula
Asked to describe their new found footage horror film They're Watching, writer-directors Micah Wright and Jay Lender had this to say: “You know that television show House Hunters International? Our movie’s like that, only at the end, everybody dies screaming.” If that sounds up your alley, get a taste of what they mean with this HitFix-exclusive clip from the film, which features one of the least-welcoming wall murals you've ever laid your eyes on.
Watch the clip above or below, and check out They're Watching in theaters and On Demand on March 25.
When an American home improvement TV show visits a remote Eastern European village, the young crew thinks the lack of mocha lattés and free wifi will be the worst of their problems. But after their filming interrupts the superstitious villagers' private religious ritual, the situation takes a turn for the homicidal… and when the blood starts flowing, that's when things get really weird. With THEY'RE WATCHING, noted graphic novelists and animators Micah Wright and Jay Lender turn a classic horror premise upside down to create a fresh, funny, eye-popping twist on the genre.
