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.

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, but 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.

The opening text "When I die, bury me deep, lay two speakers at my feet, put some headphones on my head and rock and roll me when I'm dead." appears to come from the final words of Douglas Roberts, a man convicted of kidnapping, robbery and murder in Texas and executed on April 20, 2005. This isn't directly credited or verified by the film. See more »
I really enjoyed this film. Honestly, I'm really close to saying that I loved it. This movie is wonderfully inventive, beautifully shot, and totally unlike anything else I've ever seen before. Plus, you get to see Nick Cage fight with chainsaws. What's not to like?
