All The Boys Love Mandy Lane
...But we don't

submit to reddit

College girl, Mandy Lane (Heard) is invited to spend the weekend at an isolated ranch with some of her male friends. As people begin to mysteriously vanish, it becomes obvious all is not as it seems...

All The Boys Love Mandy Lane

Will audiences ever tire of teenagers killing each other on screen? They might after seeing newcomer Jonathan Levine’s drab emo twist on the slasher, which comes up with the stunning innovation of making the most obvious candidate the surprise killer and revealing who it is only half-way through.

Following a bunch of overprivileged kids out to a remote ranch, including the titular source of grunting pubescent infatuation (Amber Heard), Levine forces us to spend time with them sodding about before Mr. Killer makes his move. And the murders aren’t even inventive, so you can’t even enjoy the victims’ expiration.

All the boys might love Mandy Lane - discerning horror fans, however, will not.

Despite the shock ending the rest of the film is tedious and dull, unoriginal and uninventive. Well i for one was not loving Mandy Lane... ... More

Not Really Good.

I saw it last night and thought it was a load of rubbish. I have seen better teen horror movies and they have more ideas than this crap. It's about this stupid girl who isn't pretty or attractive in my eyes goes on a trip with her werid friends months after someone dies at the begining. They hang about, drinking, smoking drugs and then someone starts killing them off slowly. The twists at the end is pretty shocking but didn't really explain why, you don't root for anyone and the kills are all be... More

Just about works

What idiot reviewed this? The reveal of the killer so soon makes sense once you've seen the ending, which I'm guessing Empire didn't bother to do. He's not the main protagonist. The twist is good but isn't particularly plausable or explained: they don't fit the usual killer profile one bit. Slightly above average slasher worth watching, ironically, because all the boys will love Amber Heard. ... More

It's a difficult one this, while all the characters are irritating and you actually want them to die, for some reason, it's still a tense, funny, edgy and clever slasher. Nothing new, but a good Friday night popcorn horror. ... More

What does Empire know?

I saw All The Boys Love Mandy Lane yesterday and rated it highly for its originality (put it this way, it's far better than 30 Days of Night).. It reminded me of an Abercrombie commercial but with good-looking actors who can act! While the shocks take their time it turns the genre of slasher flick on its head and whatever your opinion, Amber Heard is going to be a big star. (WTF was Fleff talking about, by saying not sexy? Where have you been pal, on a desert f**king island??) ... More

Absolute crap. The bastard child of Texas Chainsaw remake and a really bad episode of the OC or The Hills. At least satisfy the audience by supplying something sexy. Mandy was not. And neither was anyone else. And real stroke of genius for writers to 'thwart' our expectation. You still would have seen the 'twists' coming if you were blind. At least it will be used in some pretentious film course as an exercise in noughties teen / indie horror. For me it would do as the perfect reason wh... More
