Friends often ask me to recommend indie horror films on Netflix Instant. (American Netflix, sorry!) Now I can just send…
All the Boys Love Mandy Lane
Everyone is dying to be with her. Someone is killing for it.
The orphan Mandy Lane is a beautiful, virgin and pure teenager raised by her aunt, desired by her schoolmates and a close friend of the outcast Emmet. After the death of their high school mate in a pool party, Mandy befriends Chloe, Marlin, Red, Bird and Jake. Red invites the group for a weekend party in the isolated ranch of his family.
Everyone wants to fuck Amber fuckin Heard, too bad there's a fuckin-psycho killer in their way. A party with the cool-kids. A leap of faith. Locker room chit-chat. A weekend getaway. A Hell on Wheels ranch-hand. Tits at the window. 68, you do me I owe you 1. A shotgun blow-job. A bullet to the face. A Bird's-eye view gets cut to shit. A bloody French-kiss. A final hug. A broken oath. Predictable with a what-the-fuck twist. Anson fuckin Mount is cool as fuck as Garth the Cowboy. His 8 lines of dialogue are fuckin brilliant. If you want to see Amber naked, watch The Informers. If you want to see a good slasher watch something else. If you like Anson fuckin Mount and you have 90 minutes to waste, then watch this.
I really don't get the hype/support this flick gets. It looks better than every horror movie ever, and the opening 20 minutes made me think that it was going to be clever. Then it turns into a stereotypical teen slasher, but continues to act like it's still being clever.
And why, exactly, do all the boys love Mandy Lane? I mean, Amber Heard is very attractive, but Mandy Lane is less interesting than my toaster. Was that the clever part? All the boys want to do her even though she has the personality of a fern? Is that some sort of commentary on something? The end certainly wasn't the clever part because it was super obvious, so that must have been it. Just too clever for me to get, I guess.
On the upside, that one song by Professor Murder is in it and that song rules.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
There she is boys, Mandy Lane. Untouched, pure. Since the dawn of junior year men have tried to possess her, and to date all have failed.
All the Boys Love Mandy Lane... da fuck why?! We are used to characters in horror films acting idiotic in the face of danger, but this film introduces the stupidity long before any danger rears its head. Apparently all the horndogs in this small town are completely infatuated with Mandy Lane because she's the only girl that hasn't slept with all of them.
If that wasn't bad enough, all the slutty girls are constantly in desperate need for Mandy's approval as well. So all these horned up teenagers, male and female, that are…
Performances : 6.6/10
Story : 7.1/10
Production : 6.5/10
Overall : 6.73/10
It's corny, cheesy, thinly disguised, occasionally ridiculous and often laughable. The most important thing the film is can't be described in one word though. All the Boys Love Mandy Lane is a fantastic throwback to one of the more exciting genres in movie history: the 80's slasher.
It has the perfect amount of blood, plenty of laughs and more than it's share of sexual depravity. My big issue was that it tried to modernize itself. That sounds like an unfair complaint. After all, who can blame Levine and company for wanting to make their film look like it came out in the 21st century? I just felt like…
A good take on the slasher genre, though I didn't find it as clever as its reputation has it. That opening is brutal, though. Ouch.
Awful dreck which tries to use the magic hour and lens flare to add substance. It doesn't work.
Good performance from Amber Heard and solid cinematographer bouy an otherwise-average teen horror.
Very well shot, and the actors do what they can with the material, but it doesn't really distinguish itself from typical slasher fare (despite what they try to do in the end).
I don't even know what to say about this movie. You find out the killer's identity after about an hour, so then that suspense is gone, and the last half hour (and climax) of the movie takes place in broad daylight, which I can't really understand.
I wouldn't call it a horror movie. Maybe a thriller, or something. Only, not the least bit thrilling.
another bunch of the worst high schoolers you've ever seen are stalked and killed by someone doing the lord's work. amber heard does a great job of being the super hot girl that everyone in the world has masturbatory fantasies about. even the totally adult ranch worker. so if you like your movies with inappropriate sexual attraction pick this up asap.
Well i don't love her... Misleading title!
O filme tenta subverter o gênero slasher e ficou na gaveta do estúdio por oito anos. Por esses motivos, já é interessante o suficiente pra ser conferido. Uma pena que ele não faça jus às expectativas.
O roteiro é bem fraquinho (mesmo com os plot twists) e tudo parece bastante amador, especialmente as mortes mais sangrentas. Não é totalmente descartável, mas não espere nada além de uma tentativa de fazer algo novo.
A film that had a lot of buzz and praise while it sat on the shelf for 7 years, only to be widely shat upon once it finally got a U.S. release last year. I'm taking the side of the lucky few who championed it for all those years.
The directorial debut of Jonathan Levine, maker of the phenomenal 50/50 and the, from what I hear, surprise genre mashup Warm Bodies, All The Boys Love Mandy Lane is a great thriller that doesn't feel like a horror film only to sneak the horror in through the back door. It seems that is what Levine does, and does well. He makes movies that are different from what is presented, kind of…
