‘We’re all red inside’

The Welder is a 2021 American horror film about a young couple that travel to the Florida Everglades to bring themselves closer together.

What at first appears to be a seemingly pastoral paradise soon transforms into a sinister, dread-soaked nightmare as a former doctor and vicious madman terrorises them for his demented experiments bent on curing the social blight of racism…


Directed by David Liz from a screenplay co-written with Manuel Delgadillo, the movie stars Vincent De Paul, Roe Dunkley, Camila Rodríguez, Cristian Howard and Anthony Vasquez.



“Brilliantly merging the horrors of Frankenstein and Get Out, this shocking thriller carries a powerful message, especially during today’s unhinged times.” Popcorn Frights Film Festival



” …The Welder is an attractive film that overreaches, either scrimping on the narrative and character development or changing tack altogether, offering up something too preposterous to fit into the film as a whole. It’s likely that this is all coming from a place of compassion, and let’s assume that it is, but in trying to cram a weak social message into a barely-realised horror story, it simply underlines its own flaws.” Warped Perspective


The Welder had its world premiere at the Popcorn Frights Film Festival on August 15, 2021. It was also screened at the Raindance Film Festival.
