In the latest episode of Rewind of the Living Dead, we review possibly the craziest Nicolas Cage movie of all time with “Prisoners of The Ghostland”…
Hardcore film fanatics probably already know the name Sono Sion from his many works in Japan where he’s been hailed as “one of the most idiosyncratic artists of his generation.”
From films such as “Suicide Club” to “Love Exposure,” Sion had a reputation for grotesque violence, extreme eroticism, surreal images and complex narratives.
In 2018, Sion planned his first overseas production with an English language film that would star Nicolas Cage, who described the project as “the wildest movie I’ve ever made.”
The original script for the film was actually written as a more straight forward action film but Sion had to add his own personal touches, which the director says “added a little bit of weirdness.” The film is set against a dystopian society ruled over by a ruthless Governor who sends Cage’s character out into a nuclear wasteland to retrieve his granddaughter, which is a code name for one of his sex slaves.
In the latest episode of Rewind of the Living Dead, we’re going to check the explosives strapped to our bodies and grab a samurai sword as we review the 2021 sci-fi fever dream known as “Prisoners of the Ghostland”….
