Three actresses at different stages of their career. One from before the 1979 Islamic Revolution, one popular star of today known throughout the country and a young girl longing to attend a drama conservatory.
Taking place in 1983, Red is a lumberjack who lives in a secluded cabin in the woods. His artist girlfriend Mandy spends her days reading fantasy paperbacks. Then one day, she catches the eye of a crazed cult leader, who conjures a group of motorcycle-riding demons to kidnap her. Red, armed with a chainsaw and other weapons, stops at nothing to get her back, leaving a bloody, brutal pile of bodies in his wake.Written by
We saw this movie at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival........ twice. Yeah, we walked out of our first screening, drove straight to the box office and bought tickets for the next screening. There is nothing like being in an audience watching Mandy. This is THE midnight movie. I wouldn't hesitate to say it is on the level of Rocky Horror Picture Show as far as potential cult status. From 15 minute psychedelic trips filmed with a second lag and a pinkish filter, to two unspeakably amazing weapons, there is nothing on its level. Cosmatos' direction and the cinematography are better than 95% of studio movies nowadays. This is what watching movies is all about. And let's just say, every single cast member is pitch perfect, creating the infernal hell that the movie is. God willing, this movie will get the distribution it deserves so we can see it once a year at midnight in our favorite art house cinemas. Instantly nostalgic.
