Prepare yourselves for "Mandy" - Official Trailer | Nicolas Cage, Andrea Riseborough



I will say this about Panos Cosmatos' "Mandy": It is batshit crazy.

I mean, this movie felt like a 120-minute hallucination. It is visually stunning, unlike anything I've really seen before. Yes, there are midnight movie tropes in the film (a chainsaw battle, an atmospheric soundtrack, and Nic Cage going insane by chugging a bottle and snorting cult coke). Insanity. Totally trippy. An instant cult classic, in fact. it took awhile to build up, maybe a half hour or so, but when it got there, just so awesome. It turns into this hypnotic experience that only cinema can truly deliver. The score by Jóhann Jóhannsson is also mind-blowing.

The official synopsis says it all:
Pacific Northwest. 1983 AD. Outsiders Red Miller and Mandy Bloom lead a loving and peaceful existence. When their pine-scented haven is savagely destroyed by a cult led by the sadistic Jeremiah Sand, Red is catapulted into a phantasmagoric journey filled with bloody vengeance and laced with fire.
