The Look-See is a live-action horror web series created, written, and directed by Landon Stahmer and produced by Crypt TV. It primarily stars Sean Brison as the titular monster, The Look-See.

The original short was released on YouTube on July 21st, 2017.[1] When more episodes were produced, it was retitled "The Wedding Hand" and made the first episode of the series. The first season's finale, "The Backwards Watch", was released on February 27th, 2018.[2]

On July 25th, 2018, Crypt TV confirmed that the series would receive another season, with popular horror YouTuber James A. Janisse set to guest-star. The season premiered with "The Second Home" on August 31st[3], and concluded with "The Second Hands" on September 21, 2018.[4]


Plot

The series takes place in the town of Harbor, and follows a sharp-toothed grinning demonic entity known as The Look-See, who puts his chosen victims to potentially-fatal tests. Victims must choose to let go of a specific item or person that they have held onto for a long time, and failure to release that specific item will end in the victim's death.

The series relies heavily on symbolism, with victims' injuries from their encounter with The Look-See symbolic of who or what they needed to release.


Cast

Main Cast

  • Sean Brison as The Look-See, a demon who hunts those who are unable to let go of a part of themselves or their past weighing them down. His proxy leaves the victim a note indicative of his coming, which reads "If you yourself can not release, then it will come to take a piece". Should the victim not "release" what they can not let go, The Look-See will kill them in a way that is symbolic of what they can not release, For example, the first victim of the series, a woman named Jenni, could not move on from her divorce, so The Look-See took her left hand, which is the hand that married couples typically wear their wedding rings on.

Supporting Cast

Season 1

  • Belinda Gosbee as Jenni, a middle-aged woman who divorces her husband, Daniel, after learning that he is cheating on her with another woman. Jenni is attacked by The Look-See in a public bathroom, where she attempts to flush her wedding ring down the toilet to save her life. She fails to flush the ring as it misses the bowl, so she is crippled by The Look-See -- however, because she attempted to let go of her past, she is made the monster's proxy.
  • Gwen Carole as Marlene, the mistress of Jenni's husband, Daniel. She is decapitated, symbolic of her being unable to let go of her attraction to a married man.
  • Sean Brison as Daniel, Jenni's ex-husband and Marlene's boyfriend. Some time after he married Jenni, he began seeing Marlene on the side. His eyes are removed, symbolizing the wandering of his attraction.
  • Jeremiah Hahn as Jonathan, a widowed man who lost his daughter to drowning a year prior to the series. He fails to let go of his daughter's death, and has his arms removed and his head twisted 180 degrees, implying that he may not have been paying attention to his daughter when she died.
  • Presley Reese as Camille, Jonathan's preteen daughter. She drowned some time prior to the series.
