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,

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.

FYI, I'm 56 and very jaded and cynical when it comes to movies so this review is as honest as I can get.
Seriously, I see 10's and 1's, most people seemed to either love it or hate it. I loved it, but I really wanted to hate it but I couldn't. It's exactly the type of movie I normally dislike and Cage has been a bit of a has been for a while now which doesn't help matters, but still, I loved it! I even read a bunch of the bad reviews and thought that based on those, I wouldn't like it, but nope, I still loved it!
The music I actually loved for the most part (it's very loud and in your face, not subtle at all) , the colors and cinematography in general were just great, just beautiful, and great actors to boot. As most people pointed out the first 30 minutes are a bit bizarre and trippy but for some reason I loved it and didn't have a problem with it. Please keep in mind the whole movie is a bit bizarre and trippy for the most part. Nicolas did a great job as did Andrea and Linus Roche was just plain great in it! The supporting actors did a fine job as well Not really sure what else to say, I don't feel the need to break it down.
If you're thinking about checking it out, give it a try, there's a 50/50 chance you'll actually like it.
