If the sex offender controversy surrounding Shane Black’s The Predator has you rethinking checking the film out when it arrives in theaters this Friday, September 14th, there is another option: The bloody Nicholas Cage revenge shocker Mandy, directed by Panos Cosmatos (Beyond the Black Rainbow) from a script he co-wrote with Aaron Stewart-Ahn. Now, I’m a Cage fan to begin with, so I need no convincing; if you’re on the fence, however, the insane trailer produced for the Japanese film market might just whet your appetite!
Cage is nothing short of unhinged as he rushed into the eye of a surreal, nightmarish storm of chaos. Give the Japanese trailer a spin below, after the film’s synopsis.
In the Pacific Northwest in 1983, outsiders Red Miller and Mandy Bloom lead a loving and peaceful existence. When their pine-scented haven is savagely destroyed by a cult led by the sadistic Jeremiah Sand, Red is catapulted into a phantasmagoric journey filled with bloody vengeance and laced with deadly fire.
In addition to Cage, Mandy stars Andrea Riseborough, Linus Roache, Ned Dennehy, and Richard Brake.
