All the Boys Love Mandy Lane 
Does things differently.
3/4 stars

There really was no marketing potential for All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, which explains why it was on the shelf for so long after kicking around a few festival circuits and finally landing on region 2 DVD. It's better, smarter and tries to do more with the characters than most movies in the genre that hit the big screen. Even though I wouldn't call it a horror movie, and hence the marketing problem. The setup isn't very promising, a group of teens go a ranch in the middle of nowhere, but that's where the conventional similarities stop and instead of twenty minutes of characterization and one hour of running away from the killer the equation is flipped. That's not to say were looking at well defined three dimensional characters but more so than usual. A fine touch to the proceedings was the choice to allow us not to dwell on whodunit as it's fairly obvious five minutes into the movie, this way the time can be spent in a more productive manner. It's always a shame to see a good little picture falling through the cracks.
