All The Boys Love Mandy Lane in UK cinemas February 15th
14th Jan 08
This year's perfect horror antidote to the fluffy cuddly-wuddly bunnies, vastly overpriced 'romantic' restaurant meals and heart-filled Valentine's cards is the cracking new US slasher film, All The Boys Love Mandy Lane, which hits UK cinemas on February 15th courtesy of Optimum.
We first caught a glimpse of this teasingly stylish slasher back in August at FrightFest (see our review here), where, yes, the boys in the audience almost overwhelmingly did fall in love with Mandy Lane (as played by Amber Heard).

Mandy Lane. Beautiful. Untouched. High school royalty waiting to be crowned. Since the dawn of Junior year, men have tried to possess her. Some have even died in reckless pursuit of this 16 year-old Texas angel.
Chloe and Red invite Mandy out to Red's family ranch for the weekend. Mandy sees it as an excellent opportunity to cement her new friendships. The boys see it as an opportunity to finally get with Mandy Lane.
Driving across the Texas landscape, the kids begin to gently chip away at the wall that surrounds her. Joints are smoked. A keg is stolen off a beer truck. Pills are crushed to fine powder and inhaled. Mandy observes it all with the gentle interest of a foreign tourist. And they love her for it.
At the ranch, all the boys start to make their move - each one hoping to be the first to attain the unattainable Mandy Lane. However, as night falls and the booze, drugs, and hormones take over, things are said and advances made which can never be reversed. Suddenly, sweet Mandy finds herself pit in a brutal struggle for survival against someone whose interest she has rejected.
Forget reading, writing and arithmetic. In high school, learning to be yourself and not succumbing to peer pressure is the ultimate test. And this is one exam that Mandy is determined not to fail.
