THREE COMEDIANS LAUNCH HORROR MOVIE TRIBUTE SERIES
‘THE FILMS HAVE EYES’
Featuring puppets, re-enactments, animated shorts, practical effects, and special guests, the series pays homage to The Muppet Show, Pee Wee’s Playhouse, and late night public access television.
Comedians and horror movie addicts Dakota Freeman, Bryan Mathews, and Marty Wurst have launched a new web series calledThe Films Have Eyes, in which these three demented hosts kidnap guests and force them to watch their favorite horror movies. In the series, Dakota, Bryan, and Marty live together in an old haunted mansion where they spend their time watching horror movies with their cat projectionist Church and concocting plans to inflict the next film selection on an unsuspecting guest. Episodes are available on TheFilmsHaveEyes.com.
In the first episode, Bryan and Marty capture Dakota and force him to watch the 1985 cult classic The Stuff directed by Larry Cohen, only to discover that Dakota is perhaps an even more devoted horror fan than they are. They invite Dakota to join their merry band of psychopaths and help spread the gospel of horror movies.
Other residents of the mansion include Ashley the insecure ghost; Kenny, a man being held captive in the basement by two giant spiders named Rick and Charles; and the disgustingly handsome servant Igor. Dakota, Bryan, and Marty also have a pet maggot named Maggot who emerges from his hellmouth to cackle along with the trio’s antics. Webcams showing what these crazed characters are up to at any given time can be viewed on TheFilmsHaveEyes.com, where you can also read bios of the hosts, see a gallery of Church’s photos with celebrities, read in-depth blog posts, and even send in a question to Vigo the Carpathian.
Follow the whole gang and get notified when new episodes are released on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube, where the hosts have also posted animated shorts by Dakota Freeman, movie reviews, and behind-the-scenes clips from the show.
