31 In 31: Day 1 - Mandy (2018)





This year to celebrate the Halloween month I have decided to watch 31 Horror Movies that I have never seen before in 31 Days... 31 in 31. I love Horror Films, but instead of watching the standard classics and usual fan favorites (trust me... I will watch many of them TOO!) I am going to venture out into some uncharted territory with my selections. Wish me luck....
Day 1- Mandy (2018)




Title: Mandy (2018)
Director: Panos Cosmatos
Starring: Nicholas Cage, Andrea Risenborough, Linus Roache, Bill Duke
My Review:

Man alive... what a movie to start with! This was an insane film... tailor made for Nic Cage! This is the kind of project that he should have been looking for the last 5 years as he began to spiral towards the bottom of Hollywood's elite actors. But movies like this one, Drive Angry and The Wicker Man are exactly what Nic Cage should be doing. The visuals from Cosmatos are amazingly done, but teh star of the show here is the booming soundtrack from Johann Johannson, the legendary Icelandic composer who died last year making this his last score. It is an integral part of the movie, making for an epic pairing alongside Cosmatos's visuals. 

My Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars, and Instant Classic
