Crazy For Cage! Get Your Fix Before The Month Is Over

Nicolas Cage has been gracing our screens since his debut in 1982 as “Brad’s Bud” in Fast Times at Ridgemont High, but he really cemented his status and fanbase the next year when he starred in the cult classic Valley Girl. Prolific is an understatement when it comes to The Cage, and the past few years in particular fans have seen his career shift in totally unimaginable ways as he’s taken on larger-than-life characters and unique films. Through the end of December AMC+ has a smattering of Cage films for you to indulge in — from the brand new to the old school — so see what strikes your mood and buckle up for some Cage-tastic goodness.     
Sympathy for the Devil  
Released this year, the film stars Cage as The Passenger a nefarious character whose style makes him blend in pretty well in garish Las Vegas. We don’t know what’s motivating The Passenger, but he forces a man (Joel Kinnaman as The Driver) at gunpoint to chauffeur him around town… and all of this leads to a high-stakes game of cat and mouse where nothing is as it seems. Watch it on AMC+ now.
Color Out of Space
This Sci-Fi horror flick is based on a H.P. Lovecraft short story, and Cage brings all the weirdness necessary to keep you transfixed from the moment the film begins. After a meteorite lands in their front yard, Nathan Gardner (Nicolas Cage) and his family find themselves battling an extraterrestrial organism as it infects their minds and bodies. For those who are squeamish and scare easily, we suggest keeping the lights on for this one. Oof. Stream it on AMC+ today.
Prisoners of the Ghostland
We’re used to seeing Cage in crazy situations, but the situation he finds himself in in Prisoners of the Ghostland is wholly unique. Set in a region of Japan that’s been devastated and quarantined for years following a nuclear waste spill, the film is two parts horror and one part classic Western. Let’s just say there’s a bomb-laden leather suit that will self-destruct in five days if Cage’s character doesn't find a warlord's missing granddaughter. Wrap your head around that one and watch it on AMC+ now.
Dog Eat Dog
Keeping in theme with the criminal element as Cage is wont to do, he plays an ex-con along with fellow weirdo thespian Willem Defoe. It’s a combination you won’t soon forget. The duo, along with Christopher Matthew Cook as “Diesel,” botch a kidnapping and in doing so get on the wrong side of the mob and become the city's most wanted fugitives. Vowing to stay out of prison, they go on the run from everyoneStream it on AMC+.
It seems like 2018’s Mandy really reawakened Cage’s fanbase and their undying thirst for unhinged Cage in all his forms. This film really hit that nail on the head for fans and freaked out viewers who didn’t know what they were in for. When a nightmarish cult attacks Red (Cage) and Mandy (Andrea Riseborough), the shocking assault leads to a spiraling, surreal, bloody rampage of all out, mind-altering vengeance. You seriously need to watch this… like now… on AMC+.
A Score to Settle
One more ex-con role, because truly there’s something so deeply satisfying about seeing Cage in roles like this. Maybe it’s the Con Air of it all. Anyway, in this film Cage plays gangster Frankie Carver who’s released from a long prison sentence after being diagnosed with a fatal condition. With only a short time to live, he's fixated on tracking down every last one of his old gang that betrayed him. Of course, he is! Stream A Score to Settle on AMC+.
