"No matter where you go, there you are."


Nic Cage seems to be fighting an Army of Darkness on the Mandy poster


Nicolas Cage….oh, what would we do without you? This new film, Mandy, sounds like it could be crazy good and it will debut at this year’s Sundance Film Festival on 19th January.

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.

In his delicious follow-up to cult hit Beyond the Black Rainbow, Cosmatos gleefully demonstrates an audacious command of tone and atmosphere, conjuring an ethereal treat for the senses that begs to be seen on a big screen. Awash in a salacious sea of gloriously unhinged performances, carnage, colors, and sounds, Cosmatos grinds up beloved genre tropes into a fine pulp and sculpts them into something altogether otherworldly.

EW debuted the poster and Cage does look like Bruce Campbell’s Ash from Army of Darkness. There even appears to be a bit of Chainsaw action. I cannot wait to see a trailer for this one.

The film also stars Linus Roache, Olwen Fouéré, Richard Brake and Bill Duke.
