Actor Anson Mount talks ‘All the Boys Love Mandy Lane’

Actor Anson Mount recently spoke with “Breakthrough Entertainment” about his role as Garth in the new horror flick “All the Boys Love Mandy Lane.”

In “All the Boys Love Mandy Lane,” which will be available beginning Tuesday, Dec. 3 on Blu-ray and DVD, Amber Heard plays a young woman who is invited by a group of high-schoolers to a weekend party on a secluded ranch. While the festivities rage on, the number of revelers begins to drop quite mysteriously.

[Garth] is a veteran of the Iraq war. He is probably mildly shell-shocked, prefer solitude and has found the perfect job overseeing this ranch that rarely anybody comes to. And suddenly he has got to deal with these kids who he knows are out to get in trouble. I was sort of the odd man out – the old man – in the movie.

I knew that it was an interesting script and that it kind of turned the modern horror movie on its ear but I didn’t expect it to be so extremely well shot and I was really pleased with it. Unfortunately, sometimes movies get caught up in legalities that I don’t understand. That is what happened to this one for a while.

You sort of in his business learn to live in the present, let things go as soon as you are done and move on to the next thing I have fond memories from the [‘All the Boys Love Mandy Lane’] set, though, and it feels great [that audiences finally have a chance to see the movie. It really does.

What I like about the movie is that, especially after coming out of an era where horror movies all became kind of ironic because of Wes Craven’s ‘Scream’ series, it is smart enough to recognize that what scares us now is different than what scares us in the 70s, 80s and 90s. What scared us then was the masked figure that was either going to come and kill us or kidnap us. What scares us now is the disgruntled teen.” – Anson Mount
