All the Boys Love Mandy Lane

all the boys love mandy lane

Whoo boy, you guys were right about All The Boys Love Mandy Lane!  I LOVED this movie!  So fun and such a trip.  I think I’m probably the last one out of everybody to see this one but maybe someone out there still hasn’t seen it and if not, then you definitely need to, got it?  😉

Meet Mandy Lane.  Ain't she just gorgeous??

Meet Mandy Lane. Ain’t she just gorgeous??

It’s a pretty simple concept.  Mandy Lane gets particularly hot over a summer in high school and all the boys are falling all over her.  Mandy however is quiet and shy and bff’s with a guy who’s a bit of an outsider and gets to be even more of an outsider when he pulls a prank at a pool party that leaves a boy dead.  (He has the boy jump off a roof, even though the guy is wayyyy too drunk, to impress Mandy Lane).  Fast forward a bit in time and Mandy is still quiet and shy but no longer friends with Outcast Boy.  She’s now friends with the popular crowd.  She and a couple of other girls are invited to a weekend at Stoner Dude’s ranch and Mandy talks her aunt into letting her go.  Once they get there it’s all drugs, sex, and rock’n’roll until people start dying one by one.  But who’s killing them off?  And why?

Run, Mandy, Run!

Run, Mandy, Run!

For a slasher film, this one is aces.  Amber Heard is gorgeous and perfect as Mandy Lane and every one plays their part here well.  The cinematography is aces too.  Really, I have no complaints.  This is like a perfect slasher flick.  It’s fun, it’s enjoyable, it’s a heck of a thrill ride.  I didn’t see the ending coming till the very last second and was surprised when it came.  It’s rare these days that a movie can do that.  So check it out.  I promise you won’t regret it!

Pretty sure you all have seen American Mary already but if you haven’t get thee forth post haste and do so!  Man, did I love this movie.  It’s got one of my biggest all time girl crushes in it, Katharine Isabelle from my beloved Ginger Snaps, and the story itself is just kickawesome.  I never knew what was going to happen next and that so rarely happens these days.

Meet Mary.

Meet Mary.

Mary’s just your typical med student who wants to be a surgeon, who’s also up to her eyeballs in debt, a total starving student as she says at one point.  To make ends meet, she decides to try to her hand at stripping but things don’t exactly go as planned.  Instead of stripping, she’s asked by the club’s owner to help save the life of one of his boys who is extremely hurt for whatever reason.  $5000 if she agrees to help him out.  So of course she does.  I would too for that kind of money and I’m not even in med school.

Next she starts to get harassed by a woman named Beatrice, a dancer from the club, who has had extreme body modification done to look like Betty Boop, while really she just looks uber creepy.  Bea has a friend who wants to be a living Barbie doll and as such wants…well…she wants the full Barbie package including the whole no genitalia and asexuality bit.  Once again there’s a lot of money on the table and since Mary’s still in debt, she once again agrees to do it.  Poor Mary, this is really the start of her downfall.

Beatrice.  Totes creepy, right??

After Mary does this surgery, more follow till…well…if you actually haven’t seen this one, I don’t want to ruin it for you but let’s just say Mary gets drawn into a seedy underworld and then something unspeakable happens to her that makes her go just a teensy bit cray.  Just a teensy bit though… 😉

Seriously, this movie rocks more than words can describe so if you haven’t seen it GO NOW!!!  I included a link up top just for you!  Damn, I love Katharine Isabelle.  She is so phenomenal and so incredibly hot.  I need to go watch this again, like right now.  Laterz.
