A creepy movie starring Nicholas Cage as a professor who searches for his son after he disappears during a Halloween parade, Pay the Ghost looks to be an instantly terrifying then suddenly forgettable fall flick.
There hasn’t been a Nicholas Cage movie in recent memory I would consider anything more than average. For most, it would probably be National Treasure. For me, it’s been since 2000 (Gone in Sixty Seconds) and that’s pushing it. Considering he was the hottest thing going in the late 90s (Leaving Las Vegas, The Rock, Con Air, City of Angels, Face/Off), Cage has had one hell of a drop-off. No reason to expect this to be his return to prominence.
