Jon Wright’s ‘UNWELCOME’ Blu-ray: Full of Fun Extras

I have a confession to make – while I own a Blu-ray player, I don’t actually own any Blu-rays. It was a hand-me-down and I use it for my old DVDs as I am a digital girl. That being said, when I was given the chance to review the Blu-ray of Jon Wright’s (folk horror film) Unwelcome, I was thrilled.

Unwelcome Synopsis

 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.

One of our writers, Jennifer Leigh, already reviewed the film in detail, so I will just give a few of my own thoughts and talk about the extras on the Blu-ray.


Extra, Extra!

This was a really interesting and cool movie. I’m always looking for films that explore the stories and myths of different cultures around the world. I certainly have never seen Leprechauns (the Redcaps in the movie) depicted in such a dark and malevolent way.

The Blu-ray included a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the redcaps that was a must-see! As I said before, this is such an interesting and fresh take on the leprechaun mythology. It also had a 13-minute-long behind-the-scenes look at the film that showed what it was like working in the beauty of Ireland with what looked like a very cool cast! The trailer is also included in the special features.


I will say that Blu-rays are a step up from DVDs, and I’m a convert! This is one of those must-see films for sure if you love folk horror.

Unwelcome Blu-ray goes on sale starting May 9, 2023. Get your copy today!
