Irish Horror ‘UNWELCOME’ Coming To U.S. Theaters and Shudder In 2022

Well Go USA Entertainment has acquired North American rights to the chilling Irish creature feature UNWELCOME. This all-new horror film “spins a tale of what happens to people who come in contact with the violent, bloodthirsty goblins known originally in Irish folklore as the fear dearg or “far darrig,” now often referred to worldwide as the “Redcaps.” Well Go USA and Shudder are teaming up to bring the tale to North American audiences in 2022.

Watch the trailer below, then read on for the details!

UNWELCOME (2022) 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 mythology, 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.

Jon Wright (Grabbers, Robot Overlords) directed the film, which is based on an original screenplay by Mark Stay. It stars Hannah John-Kamen (Red Sonja, Black Mirror), Douglas Booth (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies), and Colm Meaney (Con Air, Star Trek: The Next Generation).

Here’s a look at the official poster art!


UNWELCOME will open in U.S. theaters from Well Go USA on March 17, 2022. Shudder will stream the film on its service as soon as the theatrical run wraps up.
