The trailer for Nicholas Cage’s new thriller, Pay the Ghost has been released online.
Directed by Uli Edel, the film is based on a short story by British fantasy and horror author, Tim Lebbon and was adapted for screen by Timber Falls. Cage plays an English Literature professor at New York University, whose son disappears almost immediately after saying something weird during a Halloween parade.
A year later, Cage’s character starts seeing visions of his son and begins to investigate the disappearance of several other children, following a series of clues which eventually leads to the discovery of a boogieman that strikes every Samhain.
The film also stars Sarah Wayne Callies (best known for her role as Lori Grimes in The Walking Dead), Veronica Ferres and Lyriq Bent, (Saw). Shooting was completed in Toronto last autumn.
Pay the Ghost will be released in the UK on 23rd October. Watch the trailer for the film below.
