In desperate need of money, Isaac accepts a job looking after his landlord’s niece, Olga, for a few days. But there is a catch. He must wear a leather harness and chain that restricts his movements to certain rooms in order to protect Olga’s extremely frail mental state. Once left alone with Isaac, Olga exhibits erratic behavior while Isaac makes horrific discoveries in the house that trigger a deeply buried, traumatic memory.
An unrelenting game of cat and mouse, CAVEAT‘s unwavering tension and nightmarish visuals make for a debut feature bound to captivate audiences around the world.
ROTTEN TOMATOES CERTIFIED FRESH!
“CAVEAT SHARPENS YOUR NERVES BEFORE YOU EVEN GET THE CHANCE TO SETTLE IN. YOU START ON THE EDGE OF YOUR SEAT AND, FOR THE MOST PART, YOU EITHER STAY THERE OR JUMP SO HARD YOU FALL OFF.”
– KILLER HORROR CRITIC
“THE ATMOSPHERE OF CAVEAT IS STUNNING, WITH CREEPY SET DESIGN AND A SENSE OF DREAD THAT PERVADES THROUGHOUT THE FILM. … CAVEAT IS A HYPNOTIC, BLEAK, ENIGMATIC CHILLER THAT FANS OF ELDRITCH HORROR CINEMA SHOULD GO OUT OF THEIR WAY TO SEE.”
– GHASTLY GRINNING
“FEELS LIKE THE RECENT RELIC WITH A DASH OF ARI ASTER THROWN IN.”
