Description:
A genre-bending extravaganza, Mandy features Nicholas Cage giving the performance of a lifetime and the final completed score by the Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson who died before his time.

1983. Red Miller is a lumberjack who lives in a secluded cabin in the woods. His artist girlfriend Mandy Bloom spends her days reading fantasy paperbacks. Then one day, she catches the eye of a crazed cult leader, who conjures a group of motorcycle-riding demons to kidnap her. Red, armed with a crossbow and custom-made axe, stops at nothing to get her back, leaving a bloody, brutal pile of bodies in his wake.

"The core concept of the film was to create a revenge movie that orbited around the person being avenged. I wanted her to be integral to that, that her spirit is guiding this man's action from an immortal plain. It's almost as if she has transmogrified into a primal god spirit that is empowering him." (Panos Cosmatos)
