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....

Ugly film from start to finish with no redeeming qualities. Bad people doing bad things; no heroes, no empathy for the characters. It was a chore to get through this ilk. It's a want to be cult film from the 70s that fails miserably.

It is a ridiculous movie: no plot, no good sound effect, lots of blood for no reason.

Warning: Violent murders, and full frontal nudity of the cult's leader Jeremiah Sand (actor Linus Roache)
The first half was a slow dream-like, psychedelic unfolding. Too slow if you are not in the mood to sit back in a very relaxed state. If you have ever been in the hospital on a morphine drip, then you might understand how this film comes across.
The second half is where the Behind The Scenes feature labels this movie perfectly
- "Phantasmagorical".
It is both a dream and nightmare as Red Miller (Nicolas Cage) seeks revenge.
Great soundtrack. I am not a huge fan of doom/drone metal, but it was put to great use here, adding to the macabre/scary feel.

The continued usage of the colour pink and red got on my nerves fast. Plus, it felt like a movie without any point. I was not entertained or amused, despite Cage starring in it.

Not my kind of movie. I might have appreciated it if I had have been stoned. Also, I'm not fussy on movies that are taken totally in the dark, and probably on a couple of sets in a studio. Watched it for an hour or so and regret the time I wasted.

The people leaving bad reviews don't understand this movie. The point of movies like Mandy isn't their simple plotlines, but the emotions they elicit from the viewer. And in the case of watching this film, it brings out a primal, animalistic rage- inherent but suppressed in most humans- and ultimately catharsis through release of those feelings. This isn't just a popcorn action flick- it's art in cinematic form.

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

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.
