Blu-ray review: All the Boys Love Mandy Lane
What this ultimately leaves us with is a fairly conventional and reasonably well-made exploitation flick with a bit of WB-style surface gloss thrown in to detract from the grit and grime of the bloodletting. Taken on these terms, it’s a fairly entertaining way of passing the time, but it’s hard to shake the impression that it puts a bit too much effort into achieving very little. Reviewed as a straight-up horror flick, it’s slightly better than average, but by purporting (and failing) to be something more, its makers may have ended up making it seem like more of a failure than it actually is… if that makes any sense.
Who is Mandy Lane and why do all the boys love her? It certainly isn’t for her originality or sparkling conversation. I take a look at Optimum’s upcoming all-regions Blu-ray release of All the Boys Love Mandy Lane.
