Mandy (2018)
Review by Bradley Frohloff

8 / 10
As I sat in the theatre with a large crowd of other horror fans, including some mainstream ones, which was evident by the fact that when the trailer for the 2018 version of Halloween finished playing I could hear two guys behind me both admitting to each other that they had never seen the original. I had to wonder what the fuck they were doing at a movie like this. I guess the advertising and overwhelming amount of positive reviews influenced a lot of people that were in attendance.

The crowd had expressed quite a few different emotions throughout the course of the movie. There were a couple of people who walked out halfway through, I guess really not much at all had happened to that point in the traditional sense as the first hour or so exhibited mood and character development rather than providing any kind of action. Then when things began to pick up, some of the crowd were really confused on exactly how to react to certain scenes. Some people let out what I felt were nervous laughs, they were laughing at things that I personally didn't find funny nor did I feel that was the filmmakers intentions, although there are some obvious moments of levity in the move.

As the movie came to an end, someone bellowed, "What the fuck did we just watch?!", and that may be an accurate depiction of what it's like to watch Mandy. It's not nearly as action-packed as I was expecting based on the ramblings of others prior to my viewing, but it is unusual, at times quite tense, it has some interesting characters along with some dark figures which reminded me of the Cenobites from Hellraiser.

Mandy is a movie not like many others. It has a very dreamy (and eventually nightmarish) aura about it, and in a way it can come across as being a little pretentious with its drawn out, artistically shot scenes that may not have been completely necessary in the grand scheme of things. It starts off slow, which felt like it went on a bit longer than it should have before turning into a violent ride in the latter stages.
