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 »

A bizarre, yet enjoyable experience
12 July 2016 | by jtindahouseSee all my reviews

'They're Watching' is a very strange viewing experience. It's almost impossible to fully understand what I mean by this without having seen the film yourself, but it's the tone that is utterly bizarre. The film shows immense patience for the first 98% of the run time and then just completely unleashes everything it has in the final 2%. The good news is that both sides of the coin are done well. The build-up is great and handled with class and then the conclusion gives the film some X-factor and memorability.

It's a found footage film, which despite copping a lot of flack, is still a very effective film-making method, allowing directors to create a very realistic feel in their films. The cast is unknown (at least to me) and yet perform well with a lot of charisma and chemistry. The story is slow-burning, but more than creepy enough to keep the audience on edge and and knowing that more is going on than meets the eye. The twist at the end is the icing on the cake and tops off a fine horror film very nicely.
