The idea of the movie will quickly grab your attention and even make you want to see it. Numerous low-budget or B-movie horror movies incorporate elements of mythology into contemporary settings, and they are entertaining to watch. Wright has a gripping tale on his hands; fusing urban settings with elements of Brother Grimm, Irish folklore, and the distant darrig provides up a wealth of possibilities. The distant darrig, however, take a backseat to what should be their story because of the added subplot of the human threat to maya and her partner Jamie. Although these influences are very much there in Unwelcome—Gremlins meets Stray Dogs—they don't work well together.
Despite financial limitations, the folk horror successfully realises the far darrig, and they still look fantastic. Overall, the movie is well-made, with an atmospheric yet eerie Irish landscape that serves as the ideal setting for this tale. The folklore's central figures, however, are not properly incorporated into the narrative to make use of their presence, their wisdom, and the menace they pose. The Whelans, the contractors from hell, also give off the impression that they belong in a totally different film. There comes a time when Wright ought to have made a determination regarding the danger maya and Jamie face. On the surface, it appears that Wright is aiming to convey a tale that compares the nature of the far darrig with human brutality, but this takes the joy out of the entire adventure with the far darrig.
When the story fails to fully develop maya and bring her to the point where she is at the conclusion, the narrative similarly sags under the weight of its potential. The abrupt change in her persona reveals the chaotic nature of this jumbled terror. A version of this movie that might have gone down a horror-comedy path, à la Shaun of the Dead, likewise falters on the humorous beats. It's difficult to tell what the audience is supposed to like because there is so much mixed in. The way the movie resolves Maya's path to parenthood feels abrupt and uncalled for, with little effort put into setting up the groundwork for such a drastic reaction to her predicament.
Entertaining is one of many unwelcome things. But the outcome is unsatisfactory since there isn't much attention paid to what makes this movie interesting. In addition, the movie drags on for around 20 minutes when it might have been much more succinct and exciting. Unwelcome stumbles a lot despite the excellent work of the ensemble cast, especially Hannah John-Kamen and Douglas Booth. No one wants to watch a movie that feels like it is one or two draughts away from being a better supernatural horror, even though there are plenty of fantastic ones.
