NIC CAGE on PAY THE GHOST and the 2% paranormal activity theory




Nic Cage interviewed on his new horror movie PAY THE GHOST .. the star also talked about the horror genre in general.

 He said, 'I certainly would have participated more in what you call “straight-up horror” if I had been given the opportunities to participate in them earlier on in my career'..

Read more on this. I am with Cage, especially on the slasher body count idea..

 Some more media interviews of Cage yielded this interesting factoid about his true thoughts of the paranormal in general: Esquire talked to him about PAY THE GHOST and also his own personal fears.. "I would say that I'm 98 percent skeptical, but the other 2 percent [is] open for the possibility of things." ..

On the question of whether he experienced the paranormal, Cage responded, "Nothing I would be able to discuss on public record. I'm not going there" ..

Sounds like he may not be doing any Celebrity Ghost Story show, but there may be a basis for the 2%.. I think there is a basis for the 2% with everyone, including me.

When that 2% type of event occurs to you, you're immediately placed into a mental location you've never expected to be. Sometimes you get the same feeling during a NIC CAGE movie (I kid Nic, I kid him) .. but his track record on films is often hit or miss.

Hopefully PAY THE GHOST scares up some cash based off of a strong story line. Often people cringe during Cage flicks. Hopefully if they do during PAY THE GHOST it will be for the right reasons..

STRANGER THINGS 2 looks incredible

The newest STRANGER THINGS 2 trailer hit on Friday the 13th .. amazing timing as always with the fine people at Netflix..

The excitement over this program is incredible. Not only are people re-watching and re-binging the first season in preparation, but there is an equal amount of re-watching and analyzing of the newest trailers..


Before discussion.. take a glance:



My initial thought: This is actually the weaker of the teasers and trailers for season 2.. Yes, I am inclined to wonder why Eleven is more androgynous  .. why she has more hair now and no one shaved it. why she is out of the upside down and eating Eggos in the normal world..

So many questions about her. But the trailer didn't pay much attention to her--I think on purpose. Instead we glimpsed into the post-pubescent boys and now new friends of another gender planning something, just as the world is being taken over by giant squid creatures from the upside down.

Not viewed at all? Mike's mom and dad. Barb..

Forgive me…

THE UNLUCK OF THE IRISH: TROPICAL STORM MAY HIT IRELAND!!

Yes, indeed.. a hurricane-ish type storm is about to hit Ireland..

Hurricane Ophelia is the 10th consecutive hurricane to form in the Atlantic basin this year. According to University of Miami hurricane expert Brian McNoldy, the last time ten consecutive storms became a hurricane was 1893. While a very interesting factoid, the "elephant in the room" is that Ophelia is headed to Ireland. It is rare, but not unprecedented.

There are a few interesting things about this.. First off, there have been really rare occasions that storms of this nature made it as far as Ophelia may..

Actually there have been only a handful in the past years since about, oh, 1851..

From 1851 to 2010, only 10 extratropical storms, typically the tail ends of tropical cyclones, have hit within 200 miles (322 kilometers) of Ireland....Hurricane Debbie was the only tropical hurricane to make landfall in that area, clipping the far northwest of the British Isles in 1961.

But this is 2017--the year that mayhem on …
