7 Deadly Things About the Psychedelic Fantasy Movie Mandy

The following post (sort of) contains spoilers for the movie Mandy.

Mandy is like watching a fairytale

As well as being a ferocious fever-dream revenge story, Mandy has the simplicity of a tender love story slowly drawing you in to its dreamlike fairytale mood.

The story tells of star-crossed lovers Red Miller and his beloved Mandy, a princess taken from her knight, by evil forces that live in the hills and lurk in the forest.

▴▴▴▴▴▴▴

The Goodies

Mandy is a love story between lumberjack Red, played by Nicolas Cage, and his shop-clerk girlfriend, Mandy, played by Andrea Riseborough.

Cage reminds us of the talent he possesses, in by far his finest work since his iguana-hallucinating turn in Bad Lieutenant or his Oscar-nominated role in Adaptation.

Birdman and Black Mirror actor Riseborough remains as stalwart as ever, gracing the screen in Mötley Crüe tees, reading fantasy novels in her magical world.

The Baddies

The demonic Black Skulls biker gang, Mandy. RLJE Films.

Utopia gets destroyed when a deranged, Manson-esque hippy cult shows up known as the Children of the New Dawn.

They summon up a demonic biker gang called the Black Skulls who have a taste for human flesh and a highly potent form of liquid LSD.

Havoc ensues.

Axes and chainsaws and spears, oh my!

Poor ol Red is propelled into a spiraling nightmarish rampage of vengeance battling all the bad guys. It’s skull-crushing, axe-wielding, chainsaw-dueling, insane pulpy madness – and it’s bloody awesome!

▴▴▴▴▴▴▴

Beautiful animated interludes

Throughout the movie – yes!

The Cheddar Goblin

In an interview with Thrillist, Mandy director Panos Cosmatos said that after the most traumatic scene in the film, he “wanted it to be a moment where the horror and the absurdity of the universe slap Cage in the face at exactly the wrong time.”

And that it does.

Roll the “Cheddar Goblin” – a mac-and-cheese-puking green goblin and “It’s Gobblin’ Good.”

▴▴▴▴▴▴▴

The Soundtrack by the late Jóhann Jóhannsson

Mandy would be nowhere near as powerful without that ominous score throbbing throughout the entire film, somber one minute, striking the next.

It’s one of the final scores written by Icelandic multi-Oscar nominated composer, Jóhann Jóhannsson, whose repertoire includes Denis Villeneuve’s Prisoners, Sicario, and Arrival, — and Darren Aronofsky’s mother!

Sadly Jóhannsson passed away shortly after Mandy premiered at Sundance. The film is dedicated to him.

7 Deadly Songs Forever Tainted by Freaky Films

“Goodbye Horses” by Q Lazzarus ▴ The Silence of the Lambs (1991)

“Goodbye Horses” will to be forever be synonymous with serial killer Buffalo Bill in The Silence of the Lambs. It’s also the perfect choice for karaoke where you can really get into character – simply strip naked, tuck away your bits and then give it your best sexual desirability dance. Or “…Baby One More Time.” Up to you.


“Red Right Hand” by Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds ▴ Scream (1996)

Wes Craven’s Scream was an unexpected smasher of a slasher that redefined the horror genre completely. Its most iconic song “Red Right Hand” was a shoo-in on the soundtrack for its all-out ominous vibe, sharing a similar storyline about a spooky figure who wreaks bloody havoc and will “appear out of nowhere but he ain’t what he seems.”


“I Want Your (Hands on Me)” by Sinéad O’Connor ▴ A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master (1988)

This underrated song by Sinéad O’Connor appears twice in this surprisingly watchable surreal sequel. A big downer for Debbie in this A Nightmare on Elm Street death scene as she is unlucky enough to be turned into a cockroach and crushed by Krueger. Lucky for us the song plays in the end credits too.


“Bad Moon Rising” by Creedence Clearwater Revival ▴ An American Werewolf in London (1981)

The definite werewolf transformation sequence ever made is set up nicely with these jaunty lyrics that basically spell out what’s about to happen. There is a bad moon rising and we’re told, “don’t go around tonight, well, it’s bound to take your life…” It was even the scene that inspired Michael Jackson to make “Thriller.”

“In Dreams” by Roy Orbison ▴ Blue Velvet (1986)

This surrealist scene is a total nightmare, albeit a beautifully composed one, complete with a dreamy Orbison ballad. You can’t help but empathise with poor Jeffrey Beaumont (Kyle MacLachlan) remembering those times when you should’ve just gone home but stayed out way past your bedtime and ended up with a bunch of absolute loons.


“Hurdy Gurdy Man” by Donavan ▴ Zodiac (2007)

“Hurdy Gurdy Man” by the Scotsman Donovan is a hippy-dippy tune about a hurdy-gurdy player and his roly-poly pal “singing songs of love,” (a hurdy-gurdy is an odd bagpipe/violin type instrument). Juxtaposed with the mindless murder on screen in that Zodiac scene the tonality of the tune changes in our minds forever.


“Tiptoe Through the Tulips” by Tiny Tim ▴ Insidious (2010)

Could this be the scariest song ever? There’s something so sinister about the singer “waiting by the window” to go “tiptoeing through the tulips.” Or is there? The song was originally intended to be a romantic one, but its presence in Insidious has turned it into music you’d imagine demons like sharpen their claws to.
