Caveat, Damian McCarthy’s feature debut, will be released exclusively on Shudder on June 3, 2021. Filmed in Cork, Ireland, the film is Mc Carthy’s feature debut following a string of successful short horror films.
Lone drifter Isaac (Jonathan French) accepts a job to look after his landlord’s niece, Olga (Leila Sykes), for a few days in an isolated house on a remote island. It seems like easy money, but there’s a catch: he must wear a leather harness and chain that restricts his movements to certain rooms.
Once Olga’s uncle, Barrett (Ben Caplan) leaves the two of them alone, a game of cat and mouse ensues as Olga displays increasingly erratic behavior as a trapped Isaac makes a series of horrific discoveries in the house.
With slow-building tension, Caveat balances creepy interiors with the beauty of Cork’s countryside to stunning visual effect. Playing out like a thoughtful, long-lost 80s chiller, the thriller leads the audience on a path of twist and turns to an unforgettable resolution.
