A few days ago Warner Brothers gave us a look at their new horror thriller “Unwelcome”. It comes from director Jon Wright who penned the screenplay with his frequent collaborator Mark Stay. This strange looking feature has a cool visual style to go along with its fairly well-worn premise. And while I’m not really sure what to expect, there looks to be enough stylish flourish and quirky ‘scares’ to prod my curiously.
Maya (Hannah John-Kamen) and Jamie (Douglas Booth) are a handsome young couple expecting their first child. To get away from the bustle of city life, Maya and Jamie jump at the chance to move into a quiet and cozy country cottage. Sounds nice, but anyone who has seen these kinds of movie knows that they’re is for a rude awakening. In this case it’s bloodthirsty goblins called “Redcaps” who live in and around the house. Horror hijinks ensues.
“Unwelcome” is set for a 2022 release. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
