READ MORE: Review: Nicolas Cage’s Supernatural Thriller ‘Pay The Ghost’
Nic Cage is in everything lately. Viewers can make their own conclusions about whether this latest string of appearances in straight-to-VOD thrillers comes from Cage’s much publicized financial troubles or a newly discovered love of genre, but either way his brooding mug is slowly becoming a fixture on the small screen. In this clip from Halloween-themed horror-thriller “Pay the Ghost,” Cage stews over his failings as a father after his son gets kidnapped right in front of him. However, he refuses to give up hope, and “Pay the Ghost” promises that his search will uncover some supernatural horrors before the film is over.
The official synopsis reads: “Nicolas Cage 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), 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.”
