March 21, 2016

theyre_watching_xlg“They’re Watching” is a horror/comedy thriller set in a small Eastern European village. Where old traditions and old superstitions are more abundant than coffee shops and free wi-fi. An American tv crew is filming a home improvement show where they quickly learn how hunting houses in the wrong place can flip into houses hunting you. See the trailer below.

The film is Produced by Mark Lagrimas. An up and coming producer in the entertainment industry and a fellow San Diegan from around the block. His friend since their college days at UCLA, Jonathan Wandag, was the film’s musical composer. Take some time to watch the film this friday and tell your friends. We will be hearing more from both Mark Lagrimas and Jonathan Wandag in the future as FilAmFest revamps itself to further support Filipinos in Art and Culture projects throughout San Diego.
