Film Review: ‘They’re Watching’

29 March 2016 12:35 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Proving once again that it’s a terrible, terrible idea for loud movie Americans to traipse around former Soviet backwaters, “They’re Watching” finds a reality-tv crew in way over their heads in a tiny Moldavian hamlet with a not-so-distant history of witch burning. Neither very plausible nor scary, this found-footage exercise is nonetheless entertaining enough for a spell, and the writing-directing duo of Jay Lender (a “SpongeBob SquarePants” animation vet) and Micah Wright (hitherto primarily a video-game writer) clearly don’t intend for it to be taken too seriously. Horror fans will be divided on whether the hectic finale makes it or breaks it. Amplify four-walled the pic on 10 U.S. screens starting Friday, simultaneous with the VOD release that will doubtless provide its principal returns.

After a short flash-forward to the end — revealing that at least one character’s fate involves the business end of an ax — we »

Movie Review – They’re Watching (2016)

26 March 2016 3:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

They’re Watching, 2016.

Directed by Jay Lander and Micah Wright.

Starring David Alpay, Cristian Balint, Brigid Brannagh, Dimitri Diatchenko, Mia Faith, Carrie Genzel and Kris Lemche.

Synopsis:

An American TV crew are sent to a small Moldovan village to record a reality home improvement show, but they soon come into conflict with the locals, and their folkloric beliefs of witchcraft.

This found footage horror-comedy begins with a fictionalised reality TV home redevelopment/relocation programme. Californian artist and pottery enthusiast Becky Westlake (Brigid Brannagh) and her spouse Goran Potsnik (Cristian Balint), a shallow soccer player, are looking for a fixer-upper property on the outskirts of a Moldovan village. Local smooth talking salesman Vladimir Filat (Dimitri Diatchenko) takes them around this “potential” country home; an abandoned, half-burned, derelict building. Filat’s unabashed optimism, and possible naiveté, goes to work to smooth out any issues with the house. So whenever Goran points out the obvious, »

Watch Exclusive Clip For Micah Wright And Jay Lender’s Tense Horror Flick They’re Watching

25 March 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Careful, They’re Watching, but in an effort to ease the tension, We Got This Covered has an exclusive clip for Micah Wright and Jay Lender’s horror flick to share with you today, and it’s simply dripping with tension.

Billed as a horror-comedy at its dark and brooding core, They’re Watching sends a group of friends to Moldova in search of a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle. What they find, however, is anything but normal, irking a volatile religious cult birthed in the shadows of the Eastern European village.

Of those making the ill-advised – and likely one-way – trip to Moldova are Brigid Brannagh, Kris Lemche and David Alpay, and fans can look forward to the release of Wright and Lender’s genre mash-up tomorrow, March 25.

Look for Micah Wright and Jay Lender’s feature when They’re Watching creeps out of the shadows and into theaters today, »

[Review] They’re Watching

25 March 2016 5:41 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

What do you get when you combine uninventive found footage, a location chosen specifically for its cheap production costs, and CGI the likes of which has not been seen since the mid-1990s? Such a recipe could only result in They’re Watching, a horror comedy whose filmmakers appear to have no basic knowledge of how either genre works.

In all fairness, the film does bait its hook with an auspicious premise. Set in the former Soviet republic of Moldova (it was actually shot throughout Romania), it captures the crew of a House Hunters International-type reality show as they return to a remote village to follow up on a money pit acquired by a wealthy American artist (Brigid Brannagh) and her Eastern European footballer husband (Cristian Balint). As expected, a classic rural vs. urban conflict begins when the outsiders crash and secretly film a sacred funeral, causing the deeply superstitious populace to become hostile. »

They’Re Watching Review

24 March 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Be honest. We’ve all done it. Some of us willingly and with no apologies, while others of us are closet fans, but those reality real estate shows are popular and addictive. Perhaps it’s because they tap into a core element of the American dream, but whatever the reason, they’ve made an impact on what television looks like these days. With that said, it only seems logical that some creative soul would take this phenomenon and mash it up with another modern cultural trend.

The graphic novelists and animators Jay Lender and Micah Wright have done just that, they wrote and directed this melding of reality-based home shopping shows with found footage, faux-documentary style horror-comedy. That’s right. No, I didn’t stutter or lose my mind. This is a thing. A real thing. I know, your reaction right now is probably quite similar to mine when I first heard of this film, »

They’re Watching Review

24 March 2016 4:05 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

*Read In Russian-y Accent* “Only found-footage horror comedy in Moldova iz Best found-footage horror comedy in Moldova” – right? Sorry Dorothina, you’re not in Pavloka anymore. There’s a big cinematic world out there filled with found-footage hopefuls and, unfortunately, They’re Watching is pretty middling by comparison.

Filmmakers Jay Lender and Micah Wright do their best to conjure a witchy Eastern European tale when a reality show crew returns to detail a drastic home makeover. Home Hunters Global unites prospective buyers with fixer-upper dumps, and after an initial sale, host Kate Banks (Carrie Genzel) returns to update viewers on the progress.

In Kate’s latest season, Becky (Brigid Brannagh) and her soccer-playing husband Goran (Cristian Balint) bought the “worst house in Moldova,” and it’s time to witness the transformation. Kate returns to Pavloka with her camera duo, Alex (Kris Lemche) and Greg (David Alpay), along with Sarah (Mia Faith »

"They're Watching" Movie Review

24 March 2016 10:44 AM, PDT | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

.Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. and .My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2. are not the only ones vying for your attention this weekend. Let me direct you to a small movie with some pretty big scares, it.s called .They.re Watching,. a film that is so funny, it.s scary.

Adapting the found footage genre, .They.re Watching. tells the tale of a group of American TV crew making a .House Hunters. style reality show in the quaint and mysterious village of Moldova in Eastern Europe.

The first half of the film, when we meet the characters, is the highlight for me. .They.re Watching. has a strong cast and each are likable enough to follow their crazy adventure. There.s the sound guy named Alex (Kris Lemche), Greg the photojournalist (David Alpay), Mia Faith is Sara the production assistant, and my favorite, Carrie Genzel who is the stern Type A producer Kate. »

It's a Renovation Nightmare: See an Exclusive Clip from the House Hunters-Inspired Horror Movie They're Watching

23 March 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Open floor plan, stainless steel appliances and ... scary, unexplained rituals? In an exclusive clip from They're Watching, the House Hunters-esque horror comedy from Micah Wright and Jay Lender, things get a little spooky when a TV crew member is filming B-roll footage. (A warning: The clip contains some Nsfw language.) Recording video around a renovated Eastern European home, staffers from an American home-improvement TV show encounter something seemingly unexplainable. "Go make yourself useful, and go get me some B-roll shots," the woman's boss commands. "Shoot some f------ trees, some cows, just get the f--- out of my face." Filming close-ups of the forest setting, »

A new trailer for They're Watching has been released. Very comedic, the clip shows a group of friends hounded by an Eastern European cult. From the creators of Spongebob Squarepants, the theatrical trailer also shows what can happen when you move to Moldova. Brigid Brannagh, Kris Lemche and Carrie Genzel star in this feature, which will be released later this month. The synopsis mentions a home improvement television show. From there, the protagonists enter a village, where you are not allowed to say the word "witch."

On this date, the film will be available in a few select theatres and through video-on-demand. Film fans can find a few laughs now, in the trailer and even more, when the film releases soon!
