In the Pacific Northwest in 1983, social outsiders Red (Nicolas Cage) and Mandy (Andrea Riseborough) lead a peaceful metalhead existence in their cabin in the woods. That's until Jeremiah (Linus Roache), the leader of a local acid-soaked Satanic cult, becomes obsessed with Mandy (a woman who won't up with his shit), forcing Red into a full-on journey of bloody vengeance. With dazzling, hallucinatory visuals and a career-best performance from Cage, Mandy is the ultimate midnight movie – already on its way to being a cult classic.
Why You Should See This Film
From the uncompromising mind of director Panos Cosmatos (Beyond the Black Rainbow), Mandy is an utterly unique experience perfectly suited to the big screen – we're talking black metal, demons, LSD, face melting, the best Sabbath shirts you've ever seen, and a live tiger. From its chilling lead performances, to its enthralling score by the late Jóhann Jóhannsson (Arrival, Sicario), Mandy is a whacked-out, revved-up TRIP.
