Pay the Ghost is the new Nicolas Cage movie, released in time for Halloween where his son gets snatched and he thinks the lad has gone to some mysterious place along with all the other kids who go missing at Halloween.
Pay the what? Yes, exactly. What a stupid name for a film. Will he find his son? Who cares. Cage was happy to let his son run off with his dead friend’s daughter AND a bunch of weird-looking aliens in Knowing, and all those aliens were strangers, so surely the pot’s calling the kettle black, here, as he objects to the boy’s disappearance at the hand of some nefarious force?
Pay the Ghost is directed by Uli Edel, who also directed last year’s Houdini drama starring Adrien Brody, and stars Alex Mallari Jr, Veronica Ferres and Prison Break‘s Sarah Wayne Callies, and it’s released in the UK on October 23rd.
