Yesterday I wrote a story about the Elijah Wood Maniac remake finally getting a US release date. Now the current grandaddy of supposedly awesome unreleased horror films will enjoy a similar fate.
All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, the directorial debut of Warm Bodies' Jonathan Levine, will finally come out some time this summer theatrically "in the top 50 markets" as well as on VOD. The film has been on the shelf for nearly 7 years. Someone must have thrown it into a mirror.
The Weinsteins bought All the Boys Love Mandy Lane after its 2006 Toronto Film Festival debut, but never released it because no one in the company could figure out a language to arbitrary dub it into, nor could they agree which scenes needed nonsensical heavy metal music cues randomly thrown in. That's apparently been sorted out now.
Any time people talk about good recent horror films, this title inevitably comes up, so it there must really be something to it. Unlike Maniac, I haven't seen this one, so I have no massively genius insights to add beyond this copy and pasted synopsis from IMDB:
A group of high-schoolers invite Mandy Lane, a good girl who became quite hot over the summer, to a weekend party on a secluded ranch. While the festivities rage on, the number of revelers begins to drop quite mysteriously. Fart. Poop Poop. Fart. - Anonymous
Seven years of hype might be more than this film can live up to, but I'm certainly excited to finally see it. Speaking of which, am I the only one around here who hasn't seen it yet?
