Nicolas Cage Battles Crazy Evil in Bat-Shit Insane Trailer For MANDY!
The first trailer for Nicolas Cage's bat-shit insane film Mandy has finally been released! I've been waiting to share this trailer with you ever since I first saw the film at Sundance so that you could get a little taste of the nightmarish insanity that this film entails. This has got to be the craziest movie that Cage has ever been in and he's glorious in it! The trailer even gives you a glimpse at the epic Nic Cage chainsaw battle!
Bubbling up from somewhere in the realm of madness and chaos comes the eagerly awaited latest from grandiose filmmaker Panos Cosmatos. Somewhere in the primal wilderness near the Shadow Mountains in the year 1983, Red Miller (Nicolas Cage, in an adrenaline-inducing performance) has fallen deeply for the beguiling Mandy Bloom (Andrea Riseborough). But the life he has made for himself comes suddenly and horrifyingly crashing down when a vile band of ravaging idolaters and supernatural creatures penetrate his idyllic paradise with vicious fury. A broken man, Red now lives for one thing only—to hunt down these maniacal villains and exact swift vengeance.
Here's what I had to say in my review:
I’ll be honest, the first half of the film I actually wanted to get up and walk out of the movie. It was very much a psychedelic dream-like type story with synthesized music and crazy lighting and colors with a story that didn't seem to be going anywhere. I was like “what the hell is this shit?!” But there were little things here and there that kept me in my seat. Little things that kept my interest intact.
Then, when the movie hit the second half, it was time to buckle up because this movie takes you on a ride of pure unadulterated insanity!!! If you like watching Nicolas Cage go completely bonkers, this movie gives you his most bonkers and adrenaline-fueled performance yet! I’m not even joking! Watching Cage in this movie is worth the price of admission.
I can't wait to see this movie again! This is one of those films that I'll probably end up watching multiple times dragging friends and family to go see it!
Mandy was co-written by director Cosmatos and Aaron Stewart-Ahn, and it arrives in theaters on September 14, 2018.
