Any horror aficionado knows it’s nearly always bad news to play a police officer in a horror movie.

Nonetheless, David Sheftell is up for the task. After all, the horror film Willy’s Wonderland has freaky animatronics and Nicolas Cage in it.

Sheftell plays deputy sheriff Evan in a small town that is haunted by a local amusement center that has killer animatronics. Unbeknownst to this rookie cop, he doesn’t know the extent that the danger lurks inside a condemned building.

The film also stars Emily Tosta, Ric Reitz, Chris Warner, Kai Kadlec, Christian Del Grosso, Caylee Cowan, Terayle Hill, Jonathan Mercedes, and Beth Grant. Kevin Lewis directed the movie from a script written by G.O. Parsons.

Here’s the official synopsis:

A quiet loner (Cage) finds himself stranded in a remote town when his car breaks down. Unable to pay for the repairs he needs, he agrees to spend the night cleaning Willy’s Wonderland, an abandoned family fun center. But this wonderland has a dark secret that this “Janitor” is about to discover. He soon finds himself locked in an epic battle with possessed animatronic mascots that roam the halls. To survive, he must fight his way through each of them.
