I think, as a sexist, had any other actress been cast in the title role of Mandy, I wouldn't be as enamored with this pretty standard slasher. I mean, Helen Keller bumped into Amber and was like "You go girlfriend, your skin is flawless." As a movie freak however, I am incredibly impressed with her performance as an actress. I have a huge soft spot for blonde bombshell screen princesses. Especially ones who take advantage and use their skill to throw a monkey wrench right in entire concept of "type casting". Sure she's gorgeous and has a body that makes mo's turn to the fairer sex, but she's got chops to back it up. She plays apathetic, and aloof in a brilliant way that leads me to believe that if in real life Amber were to be stalked by a serial killer she'd probably just be like "whatevs". Pair her stunning performance with a masterfully executed prologue scene featuring one of my favorite tunes from Bedroom Walls and an over all good time teen-angsty, penis envy, self conscious thriller and you've got a solid Friday night make out movie. Am I surprised it didn't win any gold statues? No. Will I be surprised if in ten years teens aren't discovering this and reveling in the glory of flip phones and a by-gone era of having to steal beer and need I mention the whip-its? Absolutely. Amber Heard is a Nev Campbell for the iPad generation.
