Pay the Ghost: Directed by Uli Edel. With Nicolas Cage, Sarah Wayne Callies, Veronica Ferres, Lyriq Bent. A professor frantically searches for his son who was abducted during a Halloween carnival.

“After about five minutes into the movie I thought, u0026quot;Oh no, not another child that sees ghosts.u0026quot; Then, as though the writers heard my plea, the movie changed directions. Now, to be fair, it didnu0026#39;t go into unchartered territory. In fact, the movie revisited a well established premise.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eProfessor Mike Lawford (Nicholas Cage) loses his child at a Halloween fair right under his nose. This leads to a split between he and his wife, Kristen (Sarah Wayne Callies), as she blames him for their sonu0026#39;s abduction. Shortly before Charlieu0026#39;s (Jack Fulton) abduction he had strange visions and even heard something tell him to u0026quot;Pay the Ghostu0026quot;. All of that plays a major role in Mikeu0026#39;s subsequent search for his son as it takes him to stranger and stranger locations.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eI would call the movie eerie and ominous even but not quite scary. There is a particular frustration when a terrible thing happens to you in a desolate location because no one is around to help you. There is another, more intensified frustration when a terrible thing happens to you in New York City and there are literally thousands of people around you. Thatu0026#39;s precisely what Mike was dealing with. u0026quot;Pay the Ghostu0026quot; was entertaining and it held my interest but nothing groundbreaking.”
