Unwelcome | Douglas Booth and Jon Wright on the Horror of Redcaps

Douglas Booth in Unwelcome

Ireland is the land of legendary folklore creatures like the leprechaun, faeries, and unicorns. It also has the dark creatures of redcaps and goblins, which lurk deep in the forest, as introduced in the horror film Unwelcome.

Here is the official synopsis of Unwelcome:

A couple escapes their urban nightmare to the tranquility of rural Ireland only to hear stories of mysterious beings who live in the gnarled, 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 is always a dear price to pay for their aid.

The horror film stars Hannah John-Kamen (Black Mirror, Ant-Man and The Wasp, Ready Player One) and Douglas Booth (Loving Vincent, Jupiter Ascending, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies). Jon Wright (Grabbers, Robot Overlords) directed the film from the original screenplay by Mark Stay.

LRM Online’s Gig Patta chatted with actor Douglas Booth and director Jon Wright. We talked about the characters, the house setting, and the mysterious forest creatures of the Redcaps.

Douglas Booth became well known after his performance as Boy George in BBC Two film Worried About the Boy in 2010. A year later, he starred in the BBC adaptations of Great Expectations and Christopher and His Kind. He appeared in Darren Aronofsky’s Noah, The Wachowskis’ Jupiter Ascending, Carlo Carlei’s Romeo & Juliet, and starred in Netflix’s biopic The Dirt.

Jon Wright directed his first feature film, Tormented, a gory comedy about a murderous zombie ghost that starred Tuppence Middleton and Alex Pettyfer. Later he directed the alien invasion film Grabbers and then the sci-fi Robot Overlords. Then he shifted to directing episodes of several television series, including Ordinary Lies, The Good Karma Hospital, Our Girl, and Brassic.

Unwelcome is in select theaters today and available digitally on March 14.
