JUST in time for Halloween, the first trailer for upcoming Irish horror movie Unwelcome has been released by Warner Bros UK.
The film centres on an expectant couple that relocates to rural Ireland from London only for their bucolic dream to turn into a bloody nightmare.
They are terrorised by both malevolent, murderous goblins and hostile locals in what director Jon Wright describes as "Gremlins meets Straw Dogs".
The film stars Hannah John-Kamen (The Stranger) and Douglas Booth (Jupiter Ascending) as the tormented couple, backed up by a strong Irish cast.
Jamie-Lee O'Donnell enjoys a big screen outing after playing Michelle in the phenomenally successful TV series Derry Girls.
Star Trek and Con Air star Colm Meaney also features, as does esteemed actress Niamh Cusack, who appeared in Clint Eastwood's Hereafter.
Other familiar faces include Young Offenders star Chris Walley and Kristian Nairn, who played Hodor in Game of Thrones.
Meanwhile director Wright is no stranger to creature features, having helmed the acclaimed 2012 comedy horror, Grabbers.
The trailer features several chilling moments, not least a creepy little arm poking through a letterbox and a saw-toothed goblin rearing its head over our pregnant protagonist's belly.
Unwelcome has a February 4, 2022 release date in Ireland and Britain before hitting US screens on St Patrick's Day, March 17, 2022.
