Red and Mandy live happily in a secluded house in the mountains when a vicious otherworldly motorcycle gang attacks them brutally. After the attack, what is left in Rent is the wildest desire for revenge and the most deadly weapon of all: the rage of the man who lost everything. Panos Kosmatos delivers unexpectedly his magnum opus, just in his second feature film.

A horror film of extreme intensity, steeped in psychotropics, surrendered to a vengeful crescent of violence, given wholeheartedly to fantasy literature. The heavy metal holocaust called «Mandy» is the midnight delight of the year, an instant cult classic that takes off thanks to the delirious performance by Cage, marking the triumphant and hilarious revenge of the most unappreciated actor on the planet.
