It was one of our favourite films of the past few years, and we even screened it at the 2018 STARBURST International Film Festival, but now Mandy is finally getting the Blu-ray treatment it deserves.
While it had a HMV exclusive release back in 2018, it didn’t really do the film justice. The new Blu-ray from Dazzler Media is putting that right. Released on May 24th and presented in a ridged slipcase boasting the original artwork, the disc will also host plenty of extras including deleted and extended scenes, a behind the scenes featurette and ‘Mandy One Shots’. There is also a poster and a 40-page book featuring new essays from Tim Murray.
The official synopsis is:
Pacific Northwest. 1983 AD. Outsiders Red Miller (Nicolas Cage) and Mandy Bloom (Andrea Riseborough) lead a loving and peaceful existence. When their pine-scented haven is savagely destroyed by a cult led by the sadistic Jeremiah Sand (Linus Roache), Red is catapulted into a phantasmagoric journey filled with bloody vengeance and laced with fire.
Our synopsis would be more like: WOW! Nicolas Cage goes bat shit crazy and we love it!
Directed by Panos Cosmatos (Beyond the Black Rainbow), it’s a wild ride that doesn’t let up and this edition should be on everyone’s shelf.
You can pre-order the Mandy Limited Edition Blu-ray now ahead of its release on May 24th. It’s sure to become a collector’s item!
