All the Boys Love Mandy Lane
The second Saturday of the festival brought us the much hyped teen slasher, All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, Korea’s answer to Guinea Pig, The Butcher, the crap cauldron witch movie that is Wicked Lake
I’m baaaack. Not since four years ago, the first time we started the Fantasia blog has anyone had to do the coverage solo, so props to McCannibal for keeping the train rolling last week. It’s a tough job fitting in two, three, and sometimes four films a day, choking down a grease laden meal, drinking the skuzzy yeasty swill that is all you can get after leeching a beer ticket or two off of Mitch, and heading home at midnight to start writing.
And it’s about time! I’ve been waiting all day for Fantasia’s official site to finally get the 2008 schedule up, since we’ve been giving you stuff to look forward to on it all week, and I can happily report that it’s live!
I guess we can take it as a good sign that the folks at Senator Distribution are finally going to be releasing All the Boys Love Mandy Lane (review) sometime soon since they finally came up with a new poster for the film, right?
As you may recall, All the Boys Love Mandy Lane (review) is set to open in UK theaters next Friday, February 15th. Lucky Brits, we’re not getting it unitl (supposedly) April over here. But it’s all right, because Optimum Releasing have just thrown us a new clip from the film that should hopefully help tide you over for now. Check it out below and be sure to visit the official Mandy Lane appreciation society on MySpace when you’re done!

When the Weinstein Company snatched up the distribution rights to All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, one of the most talked about slashers in recent memory, the old crawling fear that I get whenever the Weinsteins get their hands on horror appeared with force. It would be at least a year before this would hit theaters, I just knew it.
We may still not have an official US release date for All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, but what we do have today is the first 10 minutes of the film. This comes thanks to our buddy Joey M. and Yahoo Movies UK.
Our buddy Joey M. pointed us in the direction of a new Film Jerk article where All the Boys Love Mandy Lane and many other films' release dates were rumored.
This one's for our UK readers; while yes, it sucks you’re not getting Cloverfield this Friday like we Yankees are (you only have to wait until February 1st, though), you are getting a movie a lot of U.S. horror fans are looking forward to a lot sooner than we are: All the Boys Love Mandy Lane.
Ah, remember that one girl in school who was so beautiful you could only dream of being her boyfriend? Remember that time you started to kill off her potential suitors just so you could have her all to yourself in some secluded location?
Though we’re still not sure what the Weinsteins plan on doing with All the Boys Love Mandy Lane here in the US, our brothers in the UK will get a look at it come August 10th when it opens across their island nation. With the film so close of course that means there’s a trailer out there, and sure enough Empire Online got their hands on it today. I have to admit, though the movie’s been getting all sorts of praise from film festivals across the globe, Mandy Lane herself (Amber Heard) is reason enough to see this flick.
Doesn’t it seem like The Weinstein Co. has acquired the rights to way too many films in the last few weeks? Seems like every other day we’re announcing another of their acquisitions, from Black Sheep to All the Boys Love Mandy Lane.
Word has come down via Variety that The Weinstein Co. has nabbed the horror film All the Boys Love Mandy Lane from the Midnight Madness section of the Toronto International Film Festival.
Though it’s been in place for a while, the Toronto International Film Festival gets rolling on September 7th, and I thought that now would be the perfect time to remind all you lucky bastards who are going, as well as those unlucky among us who are not, about their lineup for Midnight Madness. This year the genre-centered portion of the show has got some fantastic titles showing up including: Bong Joon-ho’s highly anticipated monster romp The Host (September 8th)
