A decent horror flick

I'll go against the grain here. I think this is a fairly good horror/suspense film. Certainly better than many of the slasher type horror films that seem to come out every few months. There is a problem -- Nicholas Cage. Not that there was anything wrong with his acting (not that it's his best outing, either). But, he's (gasp) too old for the part. In his mid-50s with a kid who's about 7. And he looks so much older and flabby in the face, too. I know what you may be thinking -- why am I being so mean. I'm not. He's just too old for the part and it shows. But beyond that, the movie held my attention. And, I disagree with a number of other posters in that this is not "the" standard plot. Sure, there are things you kinda guess and expect along the way, but it's been a long time since I saw a unique horror film. And there are things -- particularly the ending -- that are quite different from much that I've seen before. Yes, I know it was direct to DVD, which is not a good sign. But give it a chance.

Another Bad Day For Cage

A professor (Nic Cage) frantically searches for his son who was abducted during a Halloween parade. "Pay the Ghost" received negative reviews from critics. On Rotten Tomatoes, the film has a rating of 11%, based on 21 reviews, with a rating of 3.8/10. On Metacritic, the film has a score of 23 out of 100, based on 9 critics, indicating "generally unfavorable reviews". The real mystery is that this film received any positive reviews at all. The acting is terrible, just terrible. This is not one of Cage's better roles, though it actually is not his worst. And then Sarah Wayne Callies... how does she keep getting cast in movies and television? She is so awful, she ruins everything, and yet keeps coming back. Is she blackmailing someone?

Hey, that was quite good.

I'm completely aware of all the hate Nicholas Cage gets (which I disagree with), however I actually consider him a good actor that commonly falls into the wrong hands. In this little horror film, Nicholas Cage actually gives an acceptable performance as the main role with good, sentimental angry outbursts of rage. It's nothing special, but I enjoyed this film because of it's imaginative, dark cinematography and quietly creepy atmosphere. It's got good jumpscares, surprisingly eye-capturing visual effects and an alright storyline to keep it going, and as long as you expect little from this film you may find yourself pleasantly surprised. I have to remark, this is actually one of Nicholas Cage's better films after all the crap he's acted in previously, and it's good that he's still acting in some films worthy of your time.
