    All The Boys Love Mandy Lane has a reason to go down as a VOD cheap horror flick, it also has a reason to go down as Jonathan Levine's worst films. In an era of sex and rock 'n' roll- All The Boys Love Mandy Lane is a horror mixed genre movie! There is sex and and nudity A LOT OF IT. and there is drugs, parties, romance and cheap blood effects with a slasher horror atmosphere. Of course, films like Hostel and Vacancy have tried this experience and have sadly failed in the making. But the product that Mandy Lane holds is that it's not scary at all. If you are a coward- never mind, bro. Amber Heard is hot, and all the other actors make it feel like a gongshow! Really man, horror slasher flicks like Scream and Halloween succeeded but why Mandy Lane? WHY!!!????? I really gave this a two because that ghoulish sex and blood feeling touched and AMBER HEARD'S ACTING. The verdict you say? Watch it ONLINE. Only if you're still psyched about drugs and sexual horror and lesbians. Expand

    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. Expand

    Here's just how bad this film is; I saw it a year ago; on YouTube, and it was posted by the current distributor.

    All The Boys Love Mandy Lane is nothing but a white-trash remake of every prime horror film. Amber Heard is a decent actress, and she is the only actress to really do the film any good, everyone else either can't act for crap, or they just seem uninterested. One thing in
    the film I absolutely hated was the look of the film; it looks like they just found some old horror flick from the early 70's and just put it theaters without remastering it. The gritty look of the film was both disgusting and distracting, and overall the film's biggest flaw, right next to the acting.

    The film is directed by Jonathan Levine, who is actually a very good director, director of such titles as The Wackness and 50/50, but he was just too early in his career for this film, everyone was. It's not worth going to a theater for the expierience, just watch it on YouTube like I did, I give it a 4/10

    Levine brings a lot of visual style to “Mandy,” in addition to coaxing subdued, believable performances from his young cast.

    Levine shows some of the promise that would serve him so well later, but beyond an intriguing look and an initial attempt to put a new spin on the teen-horror genre, “Mandy Lane” winds up being pretty conventional.

    While some of the kills are sufficiently clever and gnarly, "Mandy Lane" is never particularly frightening.
