Nicolas Cage as a Peeping Motel Owner in First 'Looking Glass' Trailer
"Night owls sleep here." Momentum Pictures has unveiled the trailer for a thriller titled Looking Glass, from veteran American director Tim Hunter. The film stars Nicolas Cage as the owner of an old motel in the middle of the desert. He finds a two way mirror to watch guests, but when he witnesses a murder, things get weird. They soon "discover more and more gruesome secrets involving the hotel and its visitors." The film also stars Robin Tunney, Marc Blucas, Ernie Lively, and Jacque Gray. At first glance, I thought this was a feature film about the guy in the Netflix doc Voyeur, about a peeping motel owner. But it seems to be more of a wacky motel horror and nothing unique (how many of these have we seen?). Take a peek below.
Here's the first official trailer for Tim Hunter's Looking Glass, direct from Momentum's YouTube:
Ray and his wife look to start over by buying an old motel in the middle of the desert. Things take a turn for the worse however when Ray witnesses a murder through a two-way mirror. As they struggle to escape, they discover more and more gruesome secrets involving the hotel and its visitors. Looking Glass is directed by American filmmaker Tim Hunter, of the films Tex, Sylvester, River's Edge, Paint It Black, The Saint of Fort Washington, The Maker, The Failures, Control, and The Far Side of Jericho previously. The screenplay is written by Jerry Rapp and Matthew Wilder. This has not premiered at any film festivals. Momentum Pictures will release Looking Glass in select theaters + on VOD starting February 16th, 2018.
I'm starting to like Nic Cage. Because I like his struggling to get a good gig and while he does it he sometimes makes a perfect trash. It looks like people don't notice, but the latest Nic Cage's films are among the best B-films that one can find. And I like watching those...

This actually looks interesting... I like Cage but he has a real bad habit of churning out poor films. We'll see i guess...

Yeah, it kinda does. Maybe it won't be a complete stinker.

I saw this at a sneak preview event that happens every Tuesday in the cinema. As soon as the movie finished, I checked to see if there was anything else playing so that I could rid myself of the memory of how bad it was. The editing was terrible, no character development, no clue what was going on or why... just avoid it like the plague... it wouldn't even make the B-list movie cut...
