Bug-nuts crazy, drug-addled, apocalyptic-doomsday-cult-fueled, chainsaw-fighting, demon-biker-having madness and mania.
June 27, 2020
A strange, visceral, visually stunning film with a hypnotic aesthetic that builds psychedelic atmospheres and characters that only love cruelty and gloom. [Full review in Spanish]

There's just so much going on here in this contorted, awful version of the world, that it has to be seen to be believed, let alone appreciated. See this in a theater if you possibly can; the collective mind melt experience will be too good to pass up.

Mandy is a mostly fun movie but while the character and relationship building is good, it feels like it takes a bit too much time and leaves too little time to the mayhem.

Bizarre revenge horror movie has graphic violence, gore.

I didn't much care for the film, but I can see how it might appeal to gorehounds and fans of genre cinema.

... there is a sense of raw filmmaking and imagery herein coupled with throwbacks to 1980s post-apocalypse sci-fi and fantasy, but the underfunded and under-edited final cut drags like a battleship anchor holding back a rowboat.

The film at times does feel like death metal band's music video but throughout, the story seems to be as if it was lifted directly from the pages of a dark fantasy novel, similar to the one Mandy reads in the film.

Cage is exceptional and more memorable than past performances, but this is only due to the world that Cosmatos has crafted for him to coexist within.
September 30, 2019
Mandy is deadly serious about loss and it conjures the kind of blackly ridiculous, balls-out campy imagery that puts other action/arthouse flicks to shame. Its influences are obvious, but it's a one of a kind.

Mandy is lovingly assembled from a wide array of prurient obsessions ... woven into a film both clearly personal and breathtakingly gorgeous.

This piece full of excesses is the work of an author who is already known as part of the modern fantasy category. [Full Review in Spanish]

A surreal revenge tale painted in hallucinatory brushstrokes, crammed with the best kind of inoffensive and outlandish gore, Mandy is a fearlessly original love-it-or-hate-it proposition.
May 23, 2019
Fortunately, Cosmatos' Mandy matches Cage grimace for grimace and achieves, at times, a transcendent midnight madness.
April 28, 2019
From violent, psychotic cults to piles of cocaine, to heavy metal, sex, and LSD, Cosmatos evokes conservative fears of decades gone by in a fever dream action-horror film.
April 16, 2019
Mandy is a midnight madness offering, a phantasmagoric journey populated by mutant bikers, a maniacal cult leader, and gore par excellence.
March 30, 2019
Yeah. I don't get it.
March 16, 2019
The prospect of Nicolas Cage going full-bore crazy in a gory grindhouse revenge thriller will have genre fans salivating.
March 12, 2019
Visually mind-blowing, Mandy has a real taste for aesthetics but not so much for story
February 13, 2019
There's an incredible, cult pulp horror film in here somewhere, but Mandy is too overindulgent to bring it out.
