The most exhilarating creature features are not only driven by an emotionally compelling family story, but also terrifying creatures that represent a warped reflection of humanity. That’s certainly the case for the upcoming horror film, ‘Unwelcome.’
The drama was directed by Jon Wright (‘Grabbers,’ ‘Tormented’), who also co-wrote the script with Mark Stay (‘Robot Overlords’). ‘Unwelcome’ stars Hannah John-Kamen (‘Ant-Man and The Wasp,’ ‘Ready Player One,’ ‘Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City’), Douglas Booth (‘The Dirt,’ ‘Jupiter Ascending’), Colm Meaney (‘Con Air,’ the ‘Star Trek’ franchise) and Kristian Nairn (‘Game of Thrones’).
‘Unwelcome’ follows a couple, Maya and Jamie (John-Kamen and Booth) as they escape their urban nightmare in London to mvoe the tranquility of rural Ireland. However, upon their arrival, they’re surprised to hear stories of mysterious beings who live in the ancient wood at the foot of their new garden. As warned by their new neighbors, in Irish lore the Redcaps will come when called to help souls in dire need of rescue, but it’s crucial to remember that there’s always a dear price to pay for their aid.

Fun Film Fact: ‘Unwelcome’ was shot in 2020, only a few months after the outbreak of COVID-19. The UK had been on complete lockdown, and ‘Unwelcome’ was one of the first independent movies to go into production with the support of the UK government-backed insurance system that was aimed at supporting productions throughout the pandemic.
