Red, a lumberjack living in the depths of the woods, has sequestered himself and his doting girlfriend, Mandy, from the world.

When stripped from her home by a group of malicious cult members, Red sets out to avenge Mandy's abrupt and inexplicable disappearance.

I thought Nicholas Cage's career bottomed out with "The Wicker Man", apparently I was wrong. This is movie tries to be 'artsy" with lots of fancy filters and loud music, but as the saying goes "You polish Sh*t". Acting by everyone is terrible; story is forgettable, but some nice scenery though.
p.s. (I know mythbusters proved you could)

If Nicolas Cage isn't the king of good B movies or solid independent movies then I don't know who is. Cage takes you on a revenge filled Alice in Hell journey down the rabbit hole for the sadistic murder of his girlfriend. Through his journey Cage encounters drug crazed bikers and a murderous band of religious freaks. Cage uses a crazy self-made monster ax to help exact his revenge and, boy, does he know how to use it. Movie is a bit of a wreck but you can't take your eyes of it.

Nothing mind altering amazing, but cool artsy horror flick. This feels like the best Nicholas Cage (Red) since starring in Raising Arizona. He’s simple, raw and driven in his quest for vendetta. This hits all the notes of a revenge movie with hyperbolic zest. How messed up would any one be after those experiences? Andrea Risenborough (Mandy) was under-used and squandered I feel; she could have elevated the movie to greatness with better writing/plot enhancements. Linus Roache (Sand) is a decent villain and puts on a nice flavour as a used up cult leader. It would have been better with more connecting scenes and embracing more supernatural elements, but what ya gonna do, it’s kinda indie and probably on a budget (6 million). THAT LAST FIGHT SCENE! I didn’t even know I wanted that in my life and it did not disappoint. And that soundtrack, just growling, so don’t pet it. Rated 3.5 for performance, originality, and ambiance.

I suppose this might one day be seen as the Eraserhead of horror movies (a cult following, loathed by others) but, if so, you would have to put me in the "absolutely loathed it" sector. Total amateurish tripe, but not weird enough to be good. What on earth was Andrea Riseborough thinking when she signed the contract?

If you liked the Evil Dead movies, I can't recommend Mandy enough. It's meant to be taken with a sense of humor and adventure. There is plenty of homage. It's very dark, campy, psychedelic, insane, stupid, fun, and made with love. A professor of cinema could have a field day with this film, but does that mean you'll enjoy it? No, not at all. I, however, had a blast!

Watch on a big screen, volume up, bass on 11!!!

OK, if you treat this as a Halloween spoof comedy you might like it. Lots of mean acts of violence, heavy bass and other creepy sound effectz. Nicholus Cage's character, Red, gets his hands tied with barbed wire. His girlfriend is spooky before the ugly neirdy evil guys and gals show up. Cage yells, is upset with the gnarly biker guys in Halloween outfits. Lots of grunting, yelling, hitting, punching, groaning, and weird voices altered with one of those Halloween gadgets that makes kids voices sound like men with their voicebox removed and the new voice's volume on deep husky. Weird guy/cult leader with small penis, lots of darkness, glowing lights, forest and more DEEP BASS sounds, OOOH< it's so spooky-well, maybe not, more boringly funny if you ask me, PLEAE! DO NOT LET CHILDREN WATCH THIS. Too much torture and not enough plot. Horrific Violent Revenge.

This has to be the worst movie, that went on forever & a day, ever made! Nicholas Cage did not help his career by any means doing this film!
An hour & 40 min that I will never have back!

A vivid, nightmarish fever dream of a film. This is not a traditional horror film. Instead, this is where the arthouse meets the grindhouse. And Nic Cage gives one of his better latter day performances as a man driven insane by grief.

1/2 star for lumberjacks everywhere otherwise 1 hr 40 min of my life I'll never get back! Utter CRAP! Why 1:40? Because I couldn't see wasting any more of my life finishing the final 20min.! Why Elijah Wood wasted his money producing this piece of excrement I'll never know? A friend (now I think it was a joke) recommended movie. Wait until I see him!

Jupiter. ... Well, because the surface of its atmosphere is a storm that's been raging for, like, 1,000 years, and the eye of the hurricane is so huge
that it could just swallow the whole Earth. Yeah. That's... That's my favorite planet.
===
Saturn's pretty cool, and that was one of the first ones that we discovered,
that humans discovered, so there's, like, a lot of cool ancient myths about it and stuff.
===
"Under the crimson, primordial sky... surrounded by the jagged rocks of the ancient volcanic mountain, the wretched Warlock reached into the dark embrace of the fissure until his hand touched a smooth glassy surface. Cold as ice. His fist closed around The Serpent's Eye. Slowly he withdrew it and held it before him in the fading light of the blood-red suns. It glowed from within. A ghostly emerald light. Strange and eternal."

on screen fuzzy text at start of film:
When I die//Bury me deep// Lay two speakers at my feet// Wrap some headphones//Around my head//And rock and roll me//When I'm dead

I'm going hunting.
-If you're gonna go hunting, I got some other shit you might need.
I was hoping you'd say that.
-One to the right. Made it myself. It cut through bone like a fat kid through cake.

You know what Jesus' big mistake was? Huh? He didn't offer up a sacrifice in his stead. The cruciform is a constant reminder of that.

I've been blessed to know the comfort of many women. But there are few
that have had your radiance.

You know, all he wants is for his children to love one another. Now, I find that he allows me to express that love in many ways, but one of those ways... is music.

There's stories that there was a chapter than ran courier for a manufacturer of LSD. Took a disliking to them and cooked them up a special batch, and they have never been right in the head since. I seen them once from a distance. What you're hunting is rabid animals, and you should go in knowing that your odds ain't that good, and you will probably die.
===
You're just meat. Without a soul. Without a brain. Without anything. Animal.
You... You have no spirit everlasting. No... No radiant light. I possess hallucinations you will never know.
-The psychotic drones. Where the mystic swims. You're drowning. I'm swimming. You unholy abomination. You aren't even worth my spit.
It's all that hate in your heart. That's to blame. Follows you everywhere, man.
===
She... She burned brightly, Mandy. Don't you think? Still, better to burn out
than fade...
===
You're a vicious snowflake.
