Caveat, a horror film that is Damian McCarthy’s debut feature, is shown with a promising trailer after arousing the enthusiasm of those who saw it at the Frightfest in London.
We didn’t get to know much about this horror, Caveat, of which we show you the beautiful trailer. But we suspect he is English. The film is the first work, after a few short films, of Damian Mc Carthy, which premiered at London’s Frightfest and Los Angeles’ Screamfest and just bought for US distribution, which will release it next year.
From what you can see, the enthusiastic opinions following the public screenings of the film seem justified, because the setting, the direction and the story seem decidedly distressing and suggestive.
This is the plot of Caveat, set in an isolated house on a remote island:
When Isaac (Jonathan French), a lonely drifter with partial memory loss, takes the job of caring for his landlord’s granddaughter Olga (Leila Sykes) for a few days. It sounds like an easy job, but there is one condition: he must wear a leather harness with a chain that restricts his movements to certain rooms. When Olga’s uncle Barrett (Ben Caplan) leaves them alone, he starts a game of cat and mouse as Olga exhibits worsening psychological problems. With Isaac trapped and at Olga’s mercy, he begins to uncover secrets in the house that coincide with the terrifying return of his memory.
We are already afraid of the rabbit, and that circle … this is the trailer.
