Film: They're Watching

They're Watching is a live-action comedy-thriller written & directed by Micah Ian Wright & Jay Lender. "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."

They're Watching is available on DVD, iTunes, GooglePlay, Amazon Instant Video, Vudu, X-Box Live, and Netflix.
