Nicolas Cage and Kelsey Grammer Finally Join Forces in 'Grand Isle' Trailer


by Gregory Lawrence

This, friends, is the very first line of the cuckoo-bananas trailer for upcoming suspense thriller Grand Isle.

It is, of course, purred in a gravelly Southern accent by master of cuckoo-bananas suspense thrillers Nicolas Cage, and he, of course, has a long flowing mane of unkempt hair. If this ai not enough to make you wanna check out the trailer, might I sweeten the pot with Kelsey Grammer trading in his Frasier upper-class brogue for a wild Louisiana accent?

That right, friends.

During the middle of a punishing hurricane, the couple welcomes in a young, haunted-looking man (Luke Benward) to take shelter. And then the couple plays absolutely batty mind games with the poor young man. And finally, as hinted by the very first line of the trailer, everyone resorts to violence and madness and perhaps even murder!

The film, directed by Stephen S. Campanelli (Indian Horse), feels a combination of the simultaneously best/worst '1990s adult thrillers' and, like, Who Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

Cage, TBH, feels like he giving kind of a grounded performance, matching his young co-star Benward Southern-fried gothic energy nicely. If you wanna climb further into the Cage, here he is fighting his way through a haunted amusement park.
