Pay a visit to the insanely cool FX studio behind The Walking Dead, Evil Dead 2, Inglourious Basterds, and a ton of other notable violent films from the last two decades. This is the place where nightmares are made, and it couldn't be any more fascinating.

Although an unfortunate and extremely tragic incident has marred the original title of this film, The Watch (previously Neighborhood Watch), has more in line with Tom Hanks' 1989 movie, The Burbs, inasmuch as it's about a bunch of nosy dudes (Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Richard Ayoade, and Jonah Hill) figuring out all the weirdness going on in their neighborhood. This trailer is Not Safe For Work, btw.
