Nick Cage will always be Nick Cage. He’s quite the “national treasure” in that regard. He’s a very versatile actor and I really have to wonder if he’s ever declined a role. These days, we’ve seen him as a butcher, baker, and candlestick mak—ok, perhaps not. The films of 2021 have made him a chef–and he’s an onary one in Pig–and Willy’s Wonderland. It’s amazing in how he carries this film without really speaking a lot.
In his latest, Prisoners of Ghostland, he’s a bank robber turned soft. He gets caught, and Cage’s character is given a chance at freedom if he can locate Bernice (Sofia Boutella). She ran away from her tormentor, The Governor (Bill Moseley) who rules Samurai Town. She went into hiding the neighbouring territory, Ghostland. This wasteland is where many refugees like to hide.
A new convention on the Pacific Northwest scene is Vancouver Comic and Entertainment Expo in British Columbia (which will take place August 5-7th, 2016) and they have announced today their next round of guests: Bill Moseley and Michael Berryman. These two are horror film veterans with a bevy of credits which make them recognizable nearly everywhere they go! Both performers have been on the scene since the 70’s, and have their own legion of followers who enjoyed watching their special brand of terror over the years.
Moseley is best known as Chop Top in Tobe Hooper’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986) and since then, he’s appeared in many cult films like The Blob (1988) to cement his status in the world of genre films.
He played the Deadeye Captain in Army of Darkness (1992), and appeared in Repo! The Genetic Opera (2008) and The Devil’s Carnival (2012), two films by prolific director-producer-writer Terrance Zdunich. Alleluia! The Devil’s Carnival (2015) is a sequel Moseley is involved in and perhaps he may offer some clues as to what’s next in this set of films.
Berryman’s unique looks makes him a lovable terror in such products like Wes Craven’s The Hills Have Eyes (1977) and Weird Science (1985), but who doesn’t remember his role in Mötley Crüe’s music video “Smokin’ in the Boys Room?” This actor can do humour very well, but he does not get the opportunity as much.
