The movie Unwelcome will be in theatres next year. It’s about a couple who leave the city for a quieter life in rural Ireland, but things don’t go as planned.
The movie is directed by Jon Wright and is based on an original screenplay by Mark Stay. It has a great Irish cast, including Jamie-Lee O’Donnell, who is famous for being in the band Derry Girls.
In an interview with Empire, Jon Wright said, “A lot of this movie is about a very urban, liberal, progressive couple getting in touch with their primal, animal selves again.
Release Date of Unwelcome
According to Bloody Disgusting, Unwelcome will be in theatres on March 10. Four days later, on March 14, there will be a video-on-demand release.
Is There Any Trailer For Unwelcome?
Yes, there is a trailer for Unwelcome, and it looks really creepy. If you want to know what to expect from Maya and Jamie’s terrible move to Ireland, take a look at what’s below…
Official Synopsis of Unwelcome
Warner Bros. has given the following official plot summary for the movie Unwelcome.
“UNWELCOME stars Hannah John-Kamen and Douglas Booth as a couple who escape their urban nightmare to the tranquility of rural Ireland only to discover malevolent, murderous goblins lurking in the gnarled, ancient wood at the foot of their new garden.”
We have an interesting set-up that goes against what a typical home-invasion movie looks like: instead of a settled home being invaded by someone from outside, we have a couple from the city moving to a quiet country area. Aside from the obvious cultural connections, this setup also uses an Irish folklore monster instead of a generic fantasy creature.
The Irish Redcap is basically a murderous creature that looks like a goblin and likes to be violent and mean. The “red cap” the creature wears got its color from the blood of the people it killed. The rest of their bodies are covered with cotton shawls. Sometimes they wear heavy boots made of wrought iron, and they usually carry weapons from the Middle Ages, from small daggers to heavy pikes. The creature’s history depends on where it is, but we can expect it to act like the popular Gremlins do when it comes to being cruel.
The trailer for the movie tries to show that both the Redcaps and the Irish people are a real threat. Also, it seems like the Redcaps attacking the town’s people aren’t because the couple didn’t “feed” them blood offerings, but because the town’s people put pressure on them. What’s really strange, though, is that since the couple got their new house because a family member died, they didn’t seem to have to take care of feeding the Redcaps.
We see the Redcaps attack other people besides the couple, so you’d think it would be in their best interest to tell any new residents what to do. No matter what, it’s likely that the whole movie will explain it.
Who’s In the Unwelcome Cast?
Douglas Booth and Hannah John-Kamen will play the main characters, Maya and Jamie, an English couple who have to fight against the Redcaps because they are at war. Booth has been in a lot of movies before Unwanted.
He was the main character in Netflix’s The Dirt and also appeared in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Noah, and the 2013 version of Romeo and Juliet that was shown in theatres. John-Kamen, on the other hand, was in Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City, Ready Player One, Tomb Raider (2018), and The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, which didn’t last long on Netflix. Booth and John-Kamen were both in movies about Noah’s Ark, which is interesting.
Colm Meany (from “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine”), Kristian Narin (from “Game of Thrones”), Chris Walley (1917), Rick Warden (from “Band of Brothers”), Jamie-Lee O’Donnell (from “Derry Girls”), and Lalor Roddy (also from “Derry Girls”) are also in the cast (Grabbers).
The same team that worked on Jon Wright’s previous movie, Grabbers, will also work on this one. Grabbers got a lot of praise for its effects, and Fangoria even nominated it for an award in that category. It will be fun to see the Redcaps come to life and wreck the place. Mark Stay, who also wrote Robot Overlords and has worked with Jon Wright before, wrote the script for the movie.
Ratings of Unwelcome Movie
This movie has been rated R for strong violence and gore, frequent language, some drug use, and sexual content, so it’s likely that it will get an 18 certificate in the UK.
