INTERVIEW: Unwelcome – Jon Wright (Director)

Just when you think you had escaped violence and chaos, making it safely to a tranquil home, new problems arise. Ultimately, you must ask yourself: will you fight back? We talk with director Jon Wright about his new film Unwelcome and dive into where the inspiration came from, what are the films that inspire him, practical effects vs cgi, and more.

Directed by Irish-born Jon Wright (Grabbers, Robot Overlords) and based on an original screenplay by Mark Stay, Unwelcome stars Hannah John-Kamen (Killjoys, Ant-Man and The Wasp, Ready Player One) and Douglas Booth (Loving Vincent, hit Netflix film The Dirt, Jupiter Ascending, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies).

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.

Unwelcome is available on VOD.
