Ant Timpson directs the comedy-thriller starring Wood as Norval, a snobby hipster who receives a letter from his long-lost father (McHattie). Heading to the remote cabin where his father lives, they are initially overjoyed to meet, until each interaction starts to descend into thinly veiled insults and violent diatribes. Norval starts to suspect that his dad is kind of an a**hole with dark secrets, which the sleek and thrilling trailer gleefully hints at.Come to Daddy made the film festival rounds earlier this year, earning buzz at SITGES, Frightfest, The Overlook Film Festival, and Tribeca. /Film writer Caroline Cao caught the film at Tribeca, and praised the film as a "twisted blend of comedy and horror." She writes in her review, "Come to Daddy is a frenzied thriller pouring out Tarantino quarts of gore and laughs. Lurking beneath its surface, there's also an unspoken philosophical contemplation on what it means to be a father. Through all the irreverence, there is a level of closure for the perplexed son. A lot bleeds in this film. But the last and most important thing that really bleeds in the end is the emotions between father and son."Come to Daddy also stars Martin DonovanMichael SmileyMadeleine Sami, and Simon Chin.
