Red (Nicholas Cage) sharpens his instrument of vengeance.

Photographed by cinematographer Benjamin Loeb and directed by Panos Cosmatos, Mandy is set in a dimension resembling our 1983. It tells the story of a warm-hearted lumberjack named Red Miller (Nicolas Cage), who has the love of his life — the sensitive but hard-tempered Mandy Bloom (Andrea Riseborough) — stolen from him by a gang of demonic bikers called the Black Skulls, and then burned to death in his presence by an apocalyptic cult called the Children of the New Dawn. He does not take it well.
