The critical consensus

“YOU RIPPED MY FAVOURITE SHIRT!” Cage loses it in a bloody, druggy, superbly crafted revenge thriller. Astonishing.

*****Jamie Graham, Total Film, 11/09/2018

Nicolas Cage is at his maniacal best in Panos Cosmatos's wild, psychedelia-infused horror.

****(*)Emma Simmonds, The List, 08/10/2018

You already know if you’ll enjoy a film where LSD-crazed leather daddies are summoned via something called the Horn Of Abraxas. A no-holds-barred ride into madness destined for a thousand midnight screenings.

****(*)Andrew Lowery, Empire Online, 08/10/2018

Nicolas Cage delivers his most unhinged performance yet in Panos Cosmatos’ Mandy, and the results are highly pleasurable but drenched in artifice.

***(*)(*)Patrick Gamble, The Skinny, 08/10/2018

Dreamy, destructive, unfailingly compelling.

Hannah Woodhead, Little White Lies, 10/10/2018

Cage is on magnificent, mind-boggling form as a chainsaw-wielding lumberjack hunting the gang who invaded his home.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 10/10/2018

The director’s approach is strictly one-note. This isn’t a story that builds up into an orgy of violence and bloodletting. It starts in a frenzy, continues in a frenzy and ends in one too.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 12/10/2018

Often as trying as it is transcendent.

***(*)(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 11/10/2018

While it’s likely to prove to be a Marmite sort of film for many mainstream audiences, its niche appeal is undeniable, and Mandy will almost certainly be the inspiration behind many a Halloween costume, and probably the subject of many a drinking game.

***(*)(*)Kirsty McGrory, The Wee Review, 14/10/2018

Cage turns in a full-blooded turn as a lumberjack out for revenge, but this thriller is all style and no substance.
