Nicolas Cage is at it again in the newly released teaser trailer for Willy’s Wonderland, a horror film previously titled Wally’s Wonderland that focuses on a variety of killer animatronics. Although the teaser trailer is only 15 seconds long, it’s a perfect glimpse into the utter insanity that comprises the film. And given Nicolas Cage’s recent track record, that isn’t surprising.
The actor has given a multitude of great performances in his career, and he’s recently become even more popular with the success of awesome genre films like Mandy and The Color Out of Space. Upon viewing the new teaser for Willy’s Wonderland, it’s a no-brainer that this film will find its way right alongside those two modern cult classics.
Hopefully we’ll eventually have a longer trailer as we approach the film’s 2021 release date. But until then, this is an absolutely perfect example of the madness that’s in store for both Nicolas Cage’s character The Janitor as well as the audience.
The film’s official synopsis has also been released, and it’s about as crazy as you’d expect:
“The Janitor (Cage) finds himself stranded in a remote town. Unable to pay the repair shop to fix his Jeep, he agrees to work off his debt by spending the night cleaning Willy’s Wonderland, an abandoned theme park full of animatronic characters that were once a beacon of fun for children to play with.
“But Willy’s Wonderland carries a dark secret that The Janitor is about to discover. He’s been lured into a deadly trap, or rather, a living nightmare, as the Wonderland’s animatronic characters come to life to destroy him. The Janitor is forced to fight his way from one monster to another, trying to survive until morning.
“And The Janitor doesn’t play nice.”
The film was directed by Kevin Lewis from a script by G.O. Parsons. Aside from Nicolas Cage, the film stars Emily Tosta, Beth Grant, Ric Reitz, and Chris Warner.
