The enchanted lives of a couple in a secluded forest are brutally shattered by a nightmarish hippie cult and their demon-biker henchmen, propelling a man into a spiraling, surreal rampage of vengeance.
A darkness swirls at the center of a world-renowned dance company, one that will engulf the artistic director, an ambitious young dancer, and a grieving psychotherapist. Some will succumb to the nightmare. Others will finally wake up.
Chloë Grace Moretz,
A traumatized veteran, unafraid of violence, tracks down missing girls for a living. When a job spins out of control, Joe's nightmares overtake him as a conspiracy is uncovered leading to what may be his death trip or his awakening.
Taking place in 1983, Red is a lumberjack who lives in a secluded cabin in the woods. His artist girlfriend Mandy spends her days reading fantasy paperbacks. Then one day, she catches the eye of a crazed cult leader, who conjures a group of motorcycle-riding demons to kidnap her. Red, armed with a crossbow and custom Axe, stops at nothing to get her back, leaving a bloody, brutal pile of bodies in his wake.Written by
[September, 2018 e.v.] During a recent interview with GQ Magazine, Nicolas Cage disclosed that when Panos Cosmatos first approached him to be in the film, he wanted him to play the role of the cult leader, Jeremiah Sand, but Nicolas didn't like the role of Jeremiah. Nicolas said he wanted to play Red instead. Nicolas said that Panos told him this was a story about old age vs youth and he didn't think he was right to play Red and that was the end of the discussion, no agreements were able to be made. A year later, through Elijah Wood, they met again to talk about the film and this time they explored more in detail the themes of love and the loss of love within the film and they discussed those same themes within their personal lives and by this time, everything just clicked and Panos then felt totally confident in Nicolas playing Red.

[During Red and Jeremiah's final encounter]
You unholy abomination! You aren't even worth my spit! It's all that hate in your heart... that's to blame. It follows you everywhere, man. Follows you everywhere. I can still help you. It's not just your life I can save. No. It's your goddamned soul.
[while Red grabs him by the head]
No, no! No, no! Please, please. Please don't hurt me! Can't you see this was all part of your journey? A journey that led you to me... to your salvation, your cleansing......

This really is not for everyone and that is just fine.
Also story wasnt anything new or special, just typical revenge story.
Really liked how this looked, sounded and felt.
Visuals and colours are just outstanding and that was something that hooked me from the start, really trippy stuff in a good way.
Music and sounds were pushing this dark overall sinister feel and worked perfectly.
And also Nick have us great performance near insanity.
