Horror fans gone wild for a psychedelic psychological thriller

Nicolas CageHe is, without a doubt, a walking, talking, breathing coin toss, equally capable of bringing a quiet seriousness or the essence of a stoned lion to whatever role he finds himself in; of Porkby Rob Feld for In the Spider-VerseSpider-Man Noir, until this year The unbearable weight of massive talentwho celebrated his rank in the most brazen way possible.

Cage reached one end of the “Coppola end” with his turn on Mandyinvoking the cocaine-addicted lion side of the spectrum while adding a chainsaw and barbaric rage to the mix.

Mandy follows the blood-spattered harrowing plight of Red Miller, a lumberjack living in the wild with his girlfriend Mandy (Andrea Riseborough), who creates beautiful works of art. When the Children of the New Dawn, a cannibalistic religious cult equipped with overly potent LSD, burn her alive in front of his eyes, Red breaks into his hideout and goes on her own drug-infused rampage.

It was, and remains, one of Cage’s most beloved films to date, thanks to a team effort of fantastic visuals, violence that would make Tarantino jealous, and Cage’s ability to balance the wackier side of his character with a touching humanity. And since the film’s fourth anniversary passed earlier this month, r/horror has taken the time to revisit this gem.

In fact, one might wonder if a good portion of the film’s cast and crew took any of that LSD when the film was being put together. On the other hand, a creative mind is largely psychedelic, and by putting so many in the same room, including Nicolas Cage’s, you’re bound to end up with something startlingly beautiful, like Mandy I was.
