    Subversive and winning, it took ALL THE BOYS LOVE MANDY LANE seven years to get released but it was well worth the wait. This amoral film turns elements of horror inside out while depicting a particularly relevant and contemporary view of teenage sexuality. The image of boys, girls, men and women all leering at the gorgeous and perfect Mandy Lane is a repugnant dismissal of our obsession with youth and beauty the our wish to deflower that perfection. ALL THE BOYS LOVE MANDY LANE is an exciting and insightful film that is quite beautifully directed and shot. A wonderful surprise. Bravo! Full Review »

    After a long wait (and a whole lot of complications), "All the Boys Love Mandy Lane" was finally released and the wait wasn't worth it. To put it simply, the movie is boring and the story wants to be a teen slasher from the 70s and 80s but it doesn't feel like putting in the effort--the twist ending is painfully obvious before the first teen gets slashed. Additionally, the film just looks sloppy. While I get they are going for the grindhouse, low-budget look but with an already lazy style and lifeless actors, it makes the film look cheap rather than an homage to something like "Texas Chainsaw Massacre." Finally, the actors are just absolutely terrible. Amber Heard is lifeless and isn't providing any rhyme or reason for why her character Mandy Lane is so desired by every man who sees them. Heard thinks playing the part of a girl that everyone wants means just smiling sheepishly and playing with your hair but, in the end, she just looked like a cardboard cut-out that the rest of the actors just pretended was actually there...but the movie will try to compensate for that by constantly filming her in slo-mo and making sure the sun is shining behind her and I guess that means she's hot. In the end, "Mandy Lane" is just boring and its laziness is very apparent. Full Review »

    All the boys love Mandy Lane is one of the cleverest, twisted movies of the year, it is super intelligent, catchy and shocking. Shock is not the only key factory for this movie, but it is Mandy Lane's character, pure who tends to stay limited, not doing any drugs or any sex, different from other teenagers. But the ending that truly sets the film for being one of the better horror movies this year, it is although predictable throughout and similar to other slasher horror movies, it is twisted and new, it can become a cult classic Full Review »
