All the Boys Love Mandy Lane Reviews

March 8, 2016
...a less-than-auspicious debut for a filmmaker who has gone onto bigger and better things (ie there was nowhere but up for Levine, really).
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
August 28, 2015
What we might actually call a "thinking man's slasher flick."
April 8, 2014
The film's ambitions are respectable, but it unfortunately doesn't live up to them.
Full Review | Original Score: C
December 2, 2013
This isn't a masterpiece, just a well made effort by someone who seemingly understands the pros and cons of how to deliver the shivers.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
November 21, 2013
Too dumb for the arthouse, but too smart for the mall multiplex, the movie satisfies, paradoxically, precisely because it doesn't deliver on expectations.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
November 14, 2013
The third act twist is what's made this one's inflated reputation, but it's what makes this more risible than a mere genre entry.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 24, 2013
The movie is well-made, with more effort placed on building tension than on creating bloody payoffs.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 23, 2013
A stylish and self-conscious teen body-count horror film.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
October 18, 2013
The boys might love the title character, but it's doubtful many of them will like her movie.
October 18, 2013
Levine has fun with the genre, but he's found more interesting movies to make since. "Mandy" isn't quite dandy, but it's a cut above average.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
October 17, 2013
"Mandy" is a sturdy little slasher film, nothing more.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 11, 2013
I can safely say we could have lived life quite contently without ever seeing it, but it's hard to completely dismiss it.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
October 11, 2013
Better never than late.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
October 11, 2013
While some of the kills are sufficiently clever and gnarly, "Mandy Lane" is never particularly frightening. And the twist at the end raises the wee issue of character motivation-or lack thereof.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
October 11, 2013
There's a slightly nasty twist to some of the violence, with an air of school shooter menace ultimately creeping in as the group's tormentor is revealed.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 11, 2013
A slightly artsy attempt to revive the teen slasher movie, "All the Boys Love Mandy Lane" drifts awkwardly between popcorn entertainment and angsty mood piece.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
October 10, 2013
Despite moments of black comedy and some memorable images, this 'debut' doesn't offer a lot to love.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
October 10, 2013
It doesn't reinvent the genre, but it is a strong addition to the canon of films that fuse teenage anxieties of the body and social interaction with blood-soaked storytelling.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
October 10, 2013
Writer Jacob Forman takes the possessive male gaze to its violent extreme. Mandy isn't much of a character, and that's the point.
Full Review | Original Score: C
October 10, 2013
Mandy Lane is sunshine and light, but we can sense the dark side everywhere as Levine blends his potent ingredients with the savvy of a Manhattan mixologist.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
