In her 5-star Sundance review, Daily Dead Managing Editor Heather Wixson called Mandy a "psychedelic powder keg of cinematic insanity." Now, ahead, of the film's September release in the US, you can see what all the buzz is about in the first trailer for the new Panos Cosmatos movie starring Nicolas Cage as a revenge-seeking cult hunter.

RLJE Films will release Mandy in US theaters on September 14th. We have the official synopsis and trailer below, and in case you missed it, check here to read Heather's Sundance interview with Cosmatos, Cage, and Linus Roache.

"MANDY was written and directed by Panos Cosmatos (Beyond the Black Rainbow) and stars Nicolas Cage (Mom & Dad, Leaving Las Vegas), Andrea Riseborough (Birdman, Battle of the Sexes), Linus Roache (“Homeland,” “Vikings,”), Ned Denny (“Peaky Blinders,” The Women in Black 2: Angel of Death), Olwen Fouéré (Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, The Survivalist) with Richard Brake (The Death of Stalin, 31) and Bill Duke (Predator, Commando).

The quiet life of devoted couple Red (Nicolas Cage) and Mandy (Andrea Riseborough) takes a dark and bizarre turn when a nightmarish cult and their maniacal leader (Linus Roache) seek to possess Mandy…body and soul. A shocking assault on the innocent pair leads to a spiraling, surreal, bloody rampage of all out, mind-altering vengeance."
