‘Season’ greetings

Cage starrer goes Gothic for preem

After Tuesday’s preem at Landmark on the Park, Nicolas Cage revealed that his questioning crusader in “Season of the Witch” is part of his ongoing celebration of the Vincent Price/Christopher Lee school of acting. The after-party was held, appropriately enough, at a cavernous Gothic church on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, and it was there that Cage also cited his favorite films of the horror icons.

“For Lee, it’s ‘The Devil Rides Out’ and for Vincent Price, ‘The Masque of the Red Death,'” he noted. Seeing those movies as a child left an indelible impression. “At that stage of my life, I could lose myself in the magic of it.”

Costar Ron Perlman brought his 89-year-old mother, Dorothy, who let it be known, “I didn’t tell anybody! My friends will never believe I’m here with Nicolas Cage.”

Perlman’s fave thesps couldn’t be more different from Cage’s: “Burt Lancaster’s the action guy and Cary Grant is the other, the most elegant guy who’s ever graced the screen. Guillermo del Toro tells me I’m channeling Burt Lancaster, which I believe I am.”

Among the crowd for the Relativity Media release were producer Charles Roven, exec producers Ryan Kavanaugh and Tucker Tooley, director Dominic Sena and British actress Claire Foy, who, after winning raves with the BBC “Little Dorrit,” is making her American film debut as the title witch in this picture.
