North Brooklyn has seen its share of campy DIY horror films (think Ava’s Possessions and Summer of Blood), but They Look Like People is dead serious.

Onur Tukel must’ve set some kind of record when he premiered Applesauce at Tribeca Film Festival just weeks before premiering his other new film at the Brooklyn Film Festival.
