Pay The Ghost Trailer Haunting the Internet
While you may initially write this off as yet another rush job for Nicolas Cage that he shot as quickly as possible before rushing to the set of his next film (those debts aren’t gonna pay themselves), Pay the Ghost actually does deserve a chance.
After all, it’s based on a short story from Bram Stoker Award winning writer Tim Lebbon, and director Uli Edel has an impressive track record (apart from the Raspberry nominated Body of Evidence, but we’ll let that slip). And hell, Cage’s hair at least looks reasonably normal for once.
The film will be released in theaters and VOD on September 23, 2015.
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.
