So, I guess the question now is — what exactly have we been asking for? Myself, I know that I just want a genuinely scary film that features interesting (and occasionally, even intelligent) characters and is intense enough to be get under my skin without descending to the level of torture porn. I also know that I’ve been asking for more films that are not a part of the whole found footage genre. Also, as far as slasher movies are concerned, I prefer female characters who fight back as opposed to just running and screaming.
If All The Boys Love Mandy Lane can deliver on that, then it’ll definitely be what I’m waiting for. It’s a little hard to tell from the trailer. However, this has been a year of good horror films and therefore, I’m going to take a chance on All The Boys Love Mandy Lane and hope for the best.
