All the Boys Love Mandy Lane

You see trash, I see … good trash.

Now, no one is saying this hack n’ slash murder mystery, set on a Texas ranch in the middle of nowhere, is filled with Oscar-worthy acting or has anything especially deep to say.

It is what it is.

But, as a dude who loves his ’80s slashers unironically, this 2006 flick, which struggled for years to get released in theaters, can stand on its own merits.

There are twists and turns, and the finale flips the usual script firmly on its head, providing — for me, at least — a genuine melancholy to what has transpired.
