Most reviewers of the movie trailer have praised Cage’s role, and his character has garnered a lot of expectations, hoping to stand out as a horror icon.

One of the Reddit users who had the privilege to be at the early screening of the movie shared his perspective; he said,

”I saw the movie last October in an early screening. You’re correct. I don’t remember 💯of it since it was almost a year ago – but def occult themed. Think: True Detective s1 mixed with 90s era Silence of Lambs (Maika Monroe’s character is touch of Clarice) – look for pic of president Clinton hanging in her police office. It was enjoyable, and I’ll see it again when it comes out to check any differences in the ending or other scenes, but everyone is hyping it up SO much. 🤣 marketing team is def doing its job.”

EyeBackground7468 continued while reviewing the ending of the movie,

”The ending was meh. I think if you enjoyed the vibe of True Detective S1, sharp objects, and some lamb silence, you’d enjoy it. But I wish people would stop overanalyzing it and go in semi-blindly. The reveal for Cage is good. He is so good in this.”

When the other anonymous user asked him how “scary” the movie was, EyeBackground7468 replied,

”It’s more thriller to your standards but has some “scary” moments… Longlegs is a different realm. Again, more True Detective s1 if you’ve seen that. Some jump moments, but a good, creepy thriller. I think when I saw it, it was advertised as a psychological thriller.”

Warnings, Spoilers Ahead!!!

Let’s delve into the epic horror-crime movie’s twisting storyline!!!

The movie is set in the 1990s, where FBI Agent Lee Harker (played by Maika Monroe) is assigned to investigate a titular satanic serial killer Longlegs’s case.

Later, she discovers a mysterious hidden occult connected to the killings.

Conversely, Nicolas Cage’s character, Longlegs, also holds a tragic, dramatic backstory.

As the movie proceeds and gains momentum, it is supposed to eventually disclose that the killer entity is a supernatural creature who feeds on family bonds and uses love and trust against them.

One of the biggest twists of the movie will be FBI Agent Lee Harker’s partner, who turns out to be involved in the murder case.

While investigating the case further, Lee Harker encounters horrifying incidents and uncovers the darkest secrets related to it.

On top of that, she discovers a personal link to the satanic killer. She realizes she swiftly needs to act upon solving the mystery to prevent another family from the wrath of the satanic killer.

The movie’s core themes of betrayal, sacrifice, and the extreme measures people adopt to protect their loved ones will undoubtedly resonate with the viewer’s real-life experience in the movie theater.

To learn more about the movie, we have to wait until the movie’s release date.

Let’s hope that Longlegs (2024) will meet our hyped expectations and may turn out to be one of Nicolas Cage’s most memorable performances.
