This Halloween, there’s going to be an extra “treat” waiting for you: another random Nicolas Cage movie, “Pay The Ghost.” This one does have some possibility of not just being another movie that will live in the furthest corners of DVD and VOD hell.
The picture is directed by Uli Edel, the man behind “The Baader Meinhof Complex,” “Last Exit To Brooklyn,” plus episodes of “Houdini,” “Oz,” and “Homicide: Life On The Streets.” The story, however, by Dan Kay about a conspiracy of missing children on Halloween seems silly. Here’s the official synopsis:
Oscar® winner Nicolas Cage (Leaving Las Vegas) stars in this intense and chilling thriller about one man’s desperate search for his missing child. One year after his young son disappeared during a Halloween carnival, Mike Cole (Cage) is haunted by eerie images and terrifying messages he can’t explain. Together with his estranged wife (Sarah Wayne Callies, The Walking Dead), he will stop at nothing to unravel the mystery and find their son—and, in doing so, he unearths a legend that refuses to remain buried in the past.
“Pay The Ghost” opens in limited release and on VOD on September 25th. Watch below.
