Announced today, Damian Mc Carthy’s feature debut Caveat has been acquired by Shudder, with the horror movie set to arrive on the horror streaming service on June 3, 2021.
Ben Caplan (Band of Brothers, Call the Midwife), Jonathan French (A Soldier’s Voice) and Leila Sykes (Missing Something) star in a movie written and directed by Mc Carthy.
“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.”
Shudder teases, “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, Caveat leads the audience on a path of twist and turns to an unforgettable resolution.”
