Destined for life on the midnight movie circuit, Panos Cosmatos' MANDY is one of the most punishing, blood-soaked, hallucinogenic revenge odysseys to hit screens in some time - and a perfect choice to include in our ongoing Friday Late Night Movie series.

Set in the Pacific Northwest's Shadow Mountains in 1983, MANDY sees Red (Nicolas  Cage, in what many are calling a career-defining performance) and Mandy (Andrea Riseborough) leading a loving and peaceful existence. When their pine-scented haven is savagely destroyed, Red is catapulted into a phantasmagoric journey filled with bloody vengeance - and laced with fire.

"It's bloody, it's nasty, and it burns." (The New Republic)

"Cosmatos' metal-to-the-max revenge thriller is more than just the sum of its deranged set pieces, choice as they are: Its slow-drip blend of hardcore pulp and demonic fantasy has a patience and all-consuming conviction that simply cannot be faked." (Los Angeles Times)

"There are some performers who prefer a more minimalist approach, for whom less-is-more is a mantra. And then there are others for whom no gesture is too broad or baroque, the kind who not only want to play all the scales but to play every single one of them all at once. Which brings us to Nicolas Cage." (Rolling Stone)
