Today is September 1st, which pretty much means that the Halloween season is in full swing. The next two months will be loaded with fun festivities here on iHorror, and with holiday films like Tales of Halloween and Hellions coming out soon, this season promises to be a memorable one.
The 2015 haunting season will also see the release of Pay the Ghost, a supernatural thriller starring Nicolas Cage that takes place on Halloween. Like many of Cage’s recent films, this one slipped completely under our radar until the trailer hit the net, and now that it’s here, we kind of can’t wait to see it.
I mean come on. Nicolas Cage. Halloween. It’s a recipe for awesomeness.
In the film, directed by Uli Edel, Cage plays Mike Lawford, a man who’s still desperately searching for his son a year after he vanished at a Halloween carnival. Haunted by eerie images and terrifying messages he can’t explain, he will stop at nothing to unravel the mystery and find his son – and, in doing so, he unearths a legend that refuses to remain buried in the past.
Starring alongside Cage is Sarah Wayne Callies, playing his character’s estranged wife. The Walking Dead fans should recognize that name, as Callies played Lori Grimes on the show.
Check out the Pay the Ghost trailer below, and look for it on September 23rd. It will hit limited theaters and VOD outlets.
