PAY THE GHOST
released OUT NOW! 2015 | 15 | Blu-ray/dVd
Based on a short story by Tim Lebbon, this is a cheap but likeable ghost story.
Mike Cole (Nicolas Cage) is a lecturer whose son’s abducted on Halloween. Beset by spooky visions, Cole sets out to rescue his little one.
Both Cage and The Walking Dead’s Sarah Wayne Callies put in solid performances and the story takes an interestingly weird turn towards the end, but dodgy CGI birds, over-familiar scares and hokey elements make for a fright-free experience.
Extras A behind-the-scenes piece. Will Salmon
