Caveat (2020) is one of those movies that perhaps won’t receive a big recognition from the big public but it surely can be of great enjoyment for the fans of the horror genre. In it, a lone drifter suffering from partial memory loss accepts a job to look after a psychologically troubled woman in an abandoned house on an isolated island.
A lone drifter, Isaac suffering from partial memory loss accepts a job from his old landlord Barrett, to look after his niece Olga, a psychologically troubled woman living in an abandoned house on an isolated island. When Barrett convinces Isaac to confine his movements to the house and leaves the two of them alone, a game of cat and mouse ensues with Isaac fighting to survive amid the terrifying resurgence of his own memory.
The movie is the debut feature film of awards-winner writer and director Damian Mc Carthy, better known for his short film He Dies at the End (2010). Ben Caplan, Conor Dwane, Jonathan French, and Leila Sykes form the main cast.
Caveat (2020) has been part of festivals like IndieCork film festival, Screamfest Horror Film Festival, and Frightfest where it has received positive reviews praising its stylish execution, tense pace, and great visuals. At Freak Show Horror Film Festival it won the Freaky Awards for Best Actress (Leila Sykes) and the Jury Award.
Dark Sky Films have acquired the distribution rights for Caveat (2020) and is planning a USA theatrical release in early 2021.
