They're Watching

Synopsis: 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.

ALEX:
Just go, go!

Shit!

(GASPING)

ALEX:
Oh, shit.

Oh shit.

(PANTING)

ALEX:
Come on, come on,

Sarah, come on.

(PANTING)

This way, this way!

SARAH:
Help us!

MAN:
Wait...

(THUD)

(WINCES)

ALEX:
F*ck, Sarah...

ALEX:
No, no, no,

no, wait!

(MUSIC PLAYING)

NARRATOR:
Welcome to Moldova.

An affordable gem nestled in

the heart of Eastern Europe

where the old meets

new in surprising ways.

Meet Becky Westlake,

a successful artist

and potter.

After 10 years in the hectic

Los Angeles craft scene,

she is looking for some

Old World inspiration.

BECKY:
Running the

gallery has been great

but I think it's

time for a change.

I wanna slow down,

focus on my life,

my relationship.

My name is Goran Potsnik.

I think people know

who I am, but okay...

Professional soccer player.

What else do you wanna know?

(CHUCKLES)

BECKY:
Goran was cute,

athlete, very different

but, um, actually I think

that's what turned out

to be the nice part,

we're very different.

GORAN:
Well, we meet in,

uh, in Lisbon in, uh...

In a bar and here we are.

BECKY:
A healthy relationship.

NARRATOR:
Becky wants a

house where she can set up

her pottery studio,

with enough room left

over to raise a family.

To find a bargain, Becky

has enlisted the help

of local real estate

broker Vladimir Filat.

Moldova has very

complicated laws

with taxes,

land titles, religious zoning,

and gypsy prohibitions.

Not to worry.

Vladimir is best

broker in Moldova.

NARRATOR:

And as Vladimir says,

"Only broker in Moldova is

best broker in Moldova."

BECKY:
Moldova's beautiful.

It's, um, got a

sense of history.

And I wanna be

a part of that.

NARRATOR:
To find a house

on Becky's limited budget,

Vladimir directs them to

the remote farming hamlet

of Pavlovka.

She'd be trading a modern

city of 8,000,000 people

for a rustic village of 200.

So rustic that the

local legend contends

that there was once

a witch-burning here.

But the people are

much friendlier now.

(EAST EUROPEAN MUSIC PLAYING)

NARRATOR:

A few miles outside of town

is a cottage home right

out of Hansel and Gretel.

Becky may like

Old World charm,

but does she really

know the difference

between rustic and a wreck?

No one has lived

here for long time.

It's very remote, very cheap.

Many opportunities

for improvement.

Well, for the right price,

I don't mind doing the work.

Really? You can't

handle this much work.

This must be the worst

house in Moldova.

Nobody can fix this.

(CHUCKLES) Come.

Bedroom.

It's small.

I guess families were

closer back in the day.

(WATER DRIBBLES)

How 'bout some drinks?

NARRATOR:
The

interior needs some work,

but the bones of this

old house are strong.

(CHUCKLES)

Voila.

BECKY:
(CHUCKLES)

Oh, this is seriously feral.

I see media room.

What is this, an outhouse?

It is, uh, a bread

oven, very traditional.

Oh, God, I could turn this

into a kiln for my pottery.

Yes, this is what

I thought as well.

This is good for

spanking, no?

(CHUCKLES)

(CAT HOWLS)

(SCREAMING)

Oh, what was that?

It's, uh, in Moldova,

good luck.

NARRATOR:
And there's

one last surprise under

the master bedroom.

A cellar with

hidden potential.

This used to be

wine cellar originally,

but I thought maybe,

uh, you want to use

as pottery studio.

Oh, my, I could

entertain down here.

What is this?

It's, uh, a pit for,

uh, stomping grapes.

For making wine.

Hot tub!

Bow chicka bow wow.

Is that... What is that,

a painting?

VLADIMIR:
Perhaps,

artist lived here before.

Much like yourself.

I like it.

I like it all.

You serious?
