There are a view things that genuinely terrify me when it comes to horror films: 3-D, Nic Cage and Todd Farmer. Despite Nic Cage's AMAZING performance in The Wicker Man remake, where he spent a good portion of the film dressed in a bear suit and punching women in the face, the man simply does not give off a horror vibe. 3-D is, in my opinion, a complete waste of time, and Todd Farmer just bugs me. I mean, i enjoyed Jason X, but it certainly wasn't because of his script (though it was a Hell of a lot better than My Bloody Valentine 3-D.) Naturally, it was only a matter of time before the stars aligned and all three managed to find their way into the same film.

The film in question is the Patrick Lussier-helmed Drive Angry, which Shock Till You Drop reports has officially cast Christa Campbell, the uber-sexy actress who has made appearances in films such as Kraken: Tentacles of the Deep and the Day of the Dead remake, to co-star with not only Nic Cage, but David Morse and Amber Heard as well. Despite my apprehension, after reading the synopsis of the film my curiosity was piqued.

Nic Cage stars as Milton, a convicted felon whose goal is to track down those who killed his daughter and kidnapped his granddaughter. Along the way the blood flies and the body count piles up. No word on whether or not he'll ask John Malkovich to give him back the bunny.

Ridiculous? Yes. But worthy of a look if only because Nic Cage is hilarious when he tries to act angry. Cage's character is described as being driven by rage, and after watching the video below, I REALLY hope he channels that performance. "Not the beeeeeeeeeeeeeees!"

Drive angry is set to be released on February 11th, 2011, and begins shooting in Shreveport, LA this month.
