SHUDDER, the premium streaming service for horror, thrillers, and the supernatural, has now announced the summer premiere date for Irish director Damian McCarthy’s feature debut, the unnerving cat and mouse thriller Caveat, starring Ben Caplan (Band of Brothers, Call the Midwife), Jonathan French (A Solider’s Voice), and Leila Sykes (Missing Something).


In the film “lone drifter Isaac (Jonathan French) accepts a job to look after his landlord’s niece, Olga (Leila Sykes), for a few days in an isolated house on a remote island. It seems like easy money, but there’s a catch: he must wear a leather harness and chain that restricts his movements to certain rooms. Once Olga’s uncle, Barrett (Ben Caplan) leaves the two of them alone, a game of cat and mouse ensues as Olga displays increasingly erratic behavior as a trapped Isaac makes a series of horrific discoveries in the house.”


With slow-building tension, Caveat balances creepy interiors with the beauty of Cork’s countryside and stunning visual effects. Playing out like a thoughtful, long-lost 80s chiller, the film leads the audience on a path of twist and turns to an unforgettable resolution.


Justin Hyne of HyneSight Films produces the film featuring cinematography by Kieran Fitzgerald and music composed by Richard G. Mitchell. Mc Carthy served as the film’s editor.


Caveat arrives on SHUDDER in the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand on June 3, 2021. The trailer should arrive soon. In the meantime, take a look at the first images from the thriller.
