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 »

Reading reviews as funny as the movie
29 July 2016 | by bloopvilleSee all my reviews

A large portion of the reviews of this film explain why this is a very good film. To read that "nothing happened" and it "wasn't scary until the end" means that the film fooled some percentage of it's watchers. Of course, it is no more a horror film than a Simpsons or Family Guy episode with ghosts and witches would be a scary cartoon. It's just absurdist humor with purposely bad special effects. And, it's mostly hilarious. I rarely laugh at movie comedies. This was a total gag fest, and I had many hearty guffaws.

The only problem with it is the typical contrived "must keep filming even when all my friends are dying horrible deaths around me" conundrum of all found footage films. Other than that, it's a very enjoyable comedy.
