The past, the present ... and the other(s)

A little movie that could ... the director has made a lot of short movies before going feature length. And you can tell from the fantastic opening that he knows the beats of storytelling, of how to involve and intrigue the viewer. There is a lot of questions this raises .. not all of them will be answered to your full satisfaction ... or at all for that matter. But that should not deter you. Quite the opposite - this is scary in many ways ... and while I had some issues with how the main character reacted (or acted) at times, overall it makes sense ... we may lose faith, but that does not mean we should not stay engaged ... or tuned! It will pay out in the end - no pun intended. Really good acting and very well edited, so that we are always on the edge, but never over the breaking point. A very well made low budget movie, shot cinematically and the sound design ... again, the filmmaker knows what he does - that of course doesn't mean everyone will love this. Just the open questions and the Genre will appall some viewers ... and the pacing might scare of others. Again no pun intended ... for everyone else though ... what a great movie to watch.

Slow paced, uneventful, mundane and boring...

I sat down to watch the 2020 thriller/horror movie from writer and director Damian Mc Carthy here in 2021, without having ever heard about the movie. I stumbled upon it by random luck, and given my love for all things horror, of course I took the time to sit down to watch "Caveat". Unfortunately this movie was brutally boring and slow paced. It was such a struggle to sit through the ordeal that was supposed to resemble a storyline. Especially since nothing worth of any kind really happened, and the movie felt more like a jumble of random scenes put together in semi-order to form a coherent movie. I was by no means entertained by what I saw here in "Caveat", and this is definitely not a movie I would recommend any horror fans rush out to get their hands on. To me, this movie was so insanely slow paced and uneventful that it simply wasn't worth wasting my time on. Yet, I endured about an hour or so, hoping that the movie would pick up in pace or at least the storyline would become more interesting. Neither of those things happened. And this is not a movie that I will ever be returning to attempt to watch the remaining part that I skipped on. The acting in the movie was pretty wooden and rigid, given the fact that the actors and actresses had next to nothing to work with in terms of script, storyline and well-written characters. "Caveat" was a swing and a miss, and director Damian Mc Carthy just failed to entertain me with this 2020 movie. My rating of "Caveat" lands on a generous two out of ten stars.

A small caveat.

FrightFest 2020,the last free slot I had left was 5PM-ish on Sunday. Struggling to decide which of the three flicks to stream that started between 5PM-5:30 to go for due to the descriptions for all sounding so enticing,the peculiar pictures gave this title the edge in my interest,leading to me placing a caveat for a viewing. View on the film: Isolated at Bantry House in County Cork, editor/writer/director Damian Mc Carthy makes his feature film debut with a expert eye in using every corner of the real location, as Carthy & cinematographer Kieran Fitzgerald drum a claustrophobic Horror atmosphere in long-take tracking shots squeezing up next to Isaac going down the corridors of the house. Bringing Isaac to the house on the lonely island with waves crashing against the rocks,Carthy lines the walls with rusting copper, twisting to a creepy anti-somnambulism jacket Isaac being tightly strapped in. Weaving the camera round the location, Carthy brilliantly uses the environment around Isaac and Olga to tighten the chills on them,from holes in the wall where they can reach corpses and phones,to thrilling odd sequences involving a hideous looking soft toy bunny drumming on its own. Limiting the inhabitants of the house to just a quartet of characters, the screenplay by Carthy houses detailed character studies, unlocking Isaac's history of employment behind the house, and the psychological trauma which has led to Olga retreating further into the building and her mind. Circling the suggestion of witchcraft over the opening sequence, Carthy builds each layer of the ghostly tale with a subtle touch, via criss-crossing a flashback from Isaac's moments of amnesia, carefully positioned so that the viewer can take a unique Interpretation of Isaac's status, and chillingly chipping away at the torment which has led to Olga ordering Isaac to wear the anti-somnambulism jacket. Shaving the beard he spent years growing in order to film the flashbacks, Jonathan French gives a nail-biting turn as Isaac,who in the many dialogue free sequences, French captures the horror Isaac finds of trying to free himself from the drifting fog of in the past in his mind, whilst Leila Sykes superbly pulls the raw dread Olga sees in every corner of the building,as Olga turns to Isaac,and makes a caveat.
