A vivid, nightmarish fever dream of a film. This is not a traditional horror film. Instead, this is where the arthouse meets the grindhouse. And Nic Cage gives one of his better latter day performances as a man driven insane by grief.

1/2 star for lumberjacks everywhere otherwise 1 hr 40 min of my life I'll never get back! Utter CRAP! Why 1:40? Because I couldn't see wasting any more of my life finishing the final 20min.! Why Elijah Wood wasted his money producing this piece of excrement I'll never know? A friend (now I think it was a joke) recommended movie. Wait until I see him!

A psychedelic drug induced cult revenge movie..how bad could ot be?..I have seen my share of artsy cult new age up and coming different styles of movies...most I cant even remember their names.. this one o will remember but most likely because it's one word title...oh and it's one word description..crap..
This is not the coming of the next Guillermo del Toro.. more like Ed Wood...for the curious audience only and dont say you were not warned
.there is a reason that you haven't heard of this bargain bin disaster.

Psychedelic. Violent. A true classic. A must watch for Cage fans. This is the same guy in Moonstruck? This guy played Charlie Kaufman AND Donald Kaufman? Do it now.

Don't watch Mandy if you can't handle gore, or if you're boring. ETA: okay, that was too curt. It's frustrating, though, to hear people say "I want something different", and when something different comes along, "why can't it be like X, Y, and Z?" Well, it is like a hybrid of Stephen King and Clive Barker, and they're popular. Eh, I've given up guessing what's going to be a hit. Most people would say that the pace is too slow; some duplicated scenes could be cut, and most of the last hour could be called slow-motion bad-*ssery, which gets monotonous. But the atmosphere is amazing, the acting is way out there, and the music (or sound, some would call it) is best of all.

Cinematography was great as was the musical score. Its a psychedelic (bad trip) horror movie. Its way over the top (that huge chainsaw) and very ridiculous but that is what I like about it. Total escape from reality and put into a twisted story with twisted characters. Of course, after all the candy, its a simple revenge movie but one told in a way that is not that very common in movies these days. Recommend with caution. Certainly not for everyone, which is another good thing about it.

Starts off normal enough, then turns into an intense action fueled acid trip.
MIGRAINE WARNING: the over saturated colors and flashing lights induced a migraine for me. Just thought I'd add that.
Very intense but good movie!!!

Wow what a crappy movie. Bad writing, bad directing, bad acting guess in hockey that is called a hat trick. Worse than horrible and if I had paid more attention to the comments made by others I would not have checked it out.

I can't give this movie any stars - what a complete waste of time. If you think this is a dramatization of Barry Manilow's "Mandy", think again. Its Nicolas Cage at his zany psycho best picking up a paycheck in a totally mindless, incomprehensible bloodbath. Everyone involved with this film should be ashamed of making this vapid, horrible, idiotic, no redeeming value film. Please waste your time on something else...Barry Manilow perhaps?

Dreamy and hilarious. It was full of Nicholas Cage's crazy faces. I smirked at all the campy blood scenes and ridiculous action. The whole thing is filmed/saturated as a psychedelic hippy trip. I laughed quite a bit. Do you like the band GWAR? If you are entertained by that kind of thing, you will enjoy this movie....

Jupiter. ... Well, because the surface of its atmosphere is a storm that's been raging for, like, 1,000 years, and the eye of the hurricane is so huge
that it could just swallow the whole Earth. Yeah. That's... That's my favorite planet.
===
Saturn's pretty cool, and that was one of the first ones that we discovered,
that humans discovered, so there's, like, a lot of cool ancient myths about it and stuff.
===
"Under the crimson, primordial sky... surrounded by the jagged rocks of the ancient volcanic mountain, the wretched Warlock reached into the dark embrace of the fissure until his hand touched a smooth glassy surface. Cold as ice. His fist closed around The Serpent's Eye. Slowly he withdrew it and held it before him in the fading light of the blood-red suns. It glowed from within. A ghostly emerald light. Strange and eternal."

on screen fuzzy text at start of film:
When I die//Bury me deep// Lay two speakers at my feet// Wrap some headphones//Around my head//And rock and roll me//When I'm dead

I'm going hunting.
-If you're gonna go hunting, I got some other shit you might need.
I was hoping you'd say that.
-One to the right. Made it myself. It cut through bone like a fat kid through cake.

You know what Jesus' big mistake was? Huh? He didn't offer up a sacrifice in his stead. The cruciform is a constant reminder of that.

I've been blessed to know the comfort of many women. But there are few
that have had your radiance.

You know, all he wants is for his children to love one another. Now, I find that he allows me to express that love in many ways, but one of those ways... is music.

There's stories that there was a chapter than ran courier for a manufacturer of LSD. Took a disliking to them and cooked them up a special batch, and they have never been right in the head since. I seen them once from a distance. What you're hunting is rabid animals, and you should go in knowing that your odds ain't that good, and you will probably die.
===
You're just meat. Without a soul. Without a brain. Without anything. Animal.
You... You have no spirit everlasting. No... No radiant light. I possess hallucinations you will never know.
-The psychotic drones. Where the mystic swims. You're drowning. I'm swimming. You unholy abomination. You aren't even worth my spit.
It's all that hate in your heart. That's to blame. Follows you everywhere, man.
===
She... She burned brightly, Mandy. Don't you think? Still, better to burn out
than fade...

You're a vicious snowflake.
