Storyline

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.

Goofs

SPOILER:At the end of the movie,it is found that Becky's boyfriend Goran Potsnik has been murdered some time ago, because his truck is hidden in the barn and covered in dust, giving us the idea that Becky killed him not long after she bought the house, which was 6 months before. In the movie Goran Potsnik is a professional soccer (football) player and a European one at that, pretty much making him a famous or well known person in Europe. Which makes it hard to believe that no one would have noticed he was missing and reported it. If a professional athlete was not heard from or seen in several months it would be all over the news. But in the movie, no one has noticed. See more »

Fear the Frogs!
30 April 2016 | by scythertitusSee all my reviews

Great found footage movie that doesn't get bogged down in over- seriousness and has a sense of fun, while at the same time being really creepy. The characters are likable enough and the dialogue works, you can really tell that a lot of thought went into the filming and that the whole thing must have been a lot of fun.

As for the story itself, it evolves at a nice pace and plays with audience expectations a bit, especially towards the end. There is something creepy going on at least every few minutes but a lot of it is in the background so you also get to know the characters quite a lot as the film progresses.

Overall this is a smart and enjoyable horror with a decent amount of comedy and character work thrown in. I would recommend this to anyone who doesn't hate found footage movies and also say that for the most part the filming is actually important to the story in this case.
