New Poster art for UNWELCOME

I love this new poster art for UNWELCOME! The film is out on 27th January in the UK and 17th March in the USA (not sure elsewhere, so please check local listings!). There are more details here.

And here’s the trailer if you haven’t seen it already…

One Month until UNWELCOME hits UK cinemas…

Just one month until you can see this handsome devil in action in UK cinemas…

Just to be clear… this is before I went into hair and make up…

This pic appeared in the new issue of Empire magazine and it’s the first clear look at the malevolent redcaps who cause so much chaos in the story. The original designs for the redcaps came from the wonderful concept artist Paul Catling, and they were brought to life by the genius of Shaune Harrison’s prosthetics, Paddy Eason’s VFX, and second unit director (and redcap wrangler) Rick Warden.

This is how this redcap is described in the original script…

A BIG NOSED REDCAP - two foot tall and standing on skinny legs with an oversized, misshapen head.
Its eyes are milky-white and skin is like burned bacon. Tufts of hair sprout from odd places and its jaw juts out revealing razor sharp rows of teeth. It wears a tanned skin cloak stained dark red and a dagger on a belt.

Film is a collaborative medium, so there are plenty of others who helped bring this critter to life. Do check out their names on IMDb here. It never fails to amaze me just how much work goes into making movies, and the best way to see their incredible work is on a big screen so I really hope you can make it to the movies on January 27th! (I think we’re out in the US in March… not sure about the rest of the world yet, but I’ll bang the drum here when I know more).

There’s more info on the Warner Bros UK website, and here’s the trailer…

Unwelcome will premiere at Sitges in October

It’s just been confirmed that Unwelcome (that monster movie I wrote) will premiere at the Sitges Film Festival next month! This is particularly exciting as the festival is regarded as one of the best horror/fantasy festivals in the world, and I’m really excited (and mildly terrified) to see it with an audience.

And yes, I’ll be there in person in sunny Spain, so let me know if you’re going! There are more details about the festival here.

And here’s the trailer if you haven’t seen it already (and yes, bafflingly, I’m in the trailer, too… don’t have nightmares)…
