If you’re bored with the traditional movies found in your local theater, fear not: Mandy is coming.
That’s not to say that all of the films that are out right now are traditional – far from it – but Mandy, the trippy and twisted revenge thriller from director Panos Cosmatos (Beyond the Black Rainbow), is operating on an entirely different level from anything that’s been in theaters for a long time. This movie is next-level nuts, and now you can to have the chance to see it a bit early.
Regal Cinemas and Alamo Drafthouse have teamed up with RLJE Films to offer Mandy advance screenings in over 200 theaters across the United States – and in addition to seeing the film early, attendees will also be able to see an exclusive taped conversation between Cosmatos and star Nicolas Cage afterward. Trust me – Cage fans won’t want to miss this. Read More »

The film has been described by Smith as being in the vein of Creepshow, as well as having the “ironic twists and grisly moments” of The Twilight Zone.
