Editorial Reviews

Hell hath no fury...like a prom queen scorned. When Brent rejects Lola's invitation to prom, he sets off a chain of events that leave him the victim of her twisted revenge.  Now he's the only guest at Lola's terrifying and demented prom, and must fight to survive what could be his final dance. Will Brent live through this nightmare of drills, nails, glitter and syringes…or become one of Lola's "loved ones"?

4.0 out of 5 stars Brutal! November 5, 2010
Format:DVD
Wow. This really is something special - an object lesson in how to take familiar genre tropes and make them seem completely fresh. I knew nothing of the plot before seeing this and I recommend you do the same. Be warned, it's gruesome, but there's a welcome vein of jet black humour throughout and it is beautifully shot (blu-ray highly recommended). Here's hoping director Sean Byrne can pick up the horror auteur baton that Neil Marshall seems to have dropped and give us some more of this. Fantastic!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Creative Fresh Spin on a Tired Format March 19, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Nowadays, it can be hard to find a modern horror film that is both entertaining and fresh. Stale cliches and an overabundance of low budget dreck is littering movie queues and vending machines all over the world. But make no mistake, "The Loved Ones" is destined to become a cult classic. From the beginning of the film, it is apparent that it will not conform to the usual cliche (I mean, how many horror movies about torture and teen proms have been made the past four decades?). This film transcends the boundaries of the typical horror film; the torture scenes are brutal but not dark and depressing, making them even occasionally humorous. And this is all the more tolerable because this is not the kind of movie (as many modern horror films are) where everyone in the film is needlessly slaughtered.

What's even better is the fact that the acting is convincing and even at times superb; there are a number of still scenes with limited dialogue, removing the stale, banal one liners which can ruin films like this. The atmosphere is intense and memorable, and the dialogue is turned down in the mix, making this a truly haunting, brutal, and memorable little movie. Fans of this genre would be wise to check this out.

Format:DVD
Brent Mitchell accidentally killed his father by crashing into a tree in an effort to avoid a dazed, bloody figure in the road. His guilt throws him into a depression where he is constantly reminded of his mistake with his mother's mental breakdown. Marijuana and loud metal music are unsuccessful way of coping with the tragedy. The only light in his world is his girlfriend, Holly, who he plans to take to the prom. When Lola Stone, the quietest and most unassuming girl in school asks him to the prom, he nicely refuses, thinking nothing of it. Big mistake. The night of prom, he is knocked out and kidnapped. He wakes up in the prom night from hell, where a spoiled princess gets whatever she wants, even if it involves power drills, knives, and mutilation.

The Loved Ones is an odd, macabre film that fills me with delight. It combines the teen prom horror film and the twisted family horror with a feminine spin and some dark humor to make a unique, fun film. Lola Stone is a social outcast at school and her presence barely registers with classmates. The difference between her public and private persona is like night and day. She revels in the torture she inflicts on her victims with the help of her willing slave, Daddy. Lola is the most twisted spoiled child I've ever seen. She screams at and taunts her victims with Daddy and pouts when she doesn't get her way. Other than the gleeful torture, she's a normal teenage girl. Everything she owns is pink and sappy pop songs are all she listens to because she just wants a boyfriend. (I can never listen to Kasey Chamber's Not Pretty Enough, Lola's theme song, the same ever again after this movie.) Her normal teen behavior with her penchant for carving her initials on her victims' chest with a fork is odd and darkly comical.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's my party and I'll be insane if I want to September 11, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have been waiting for a US release of 'The Loved Ones' for quite awhile and it was well worth the wait.
The acting was great especially Robin McLeavy who plays the certifiably insane Lola Stone.
Horror fans will not only covet this film but want to own it for sure..Xavier Samuel is not only a good actor but he's hot as well..Yes,give us girls some eye candy for a change.

The story is so bizarre and far fetched but it doesn't matter,it's makes for a great horror film.
There are some very grit your teeth moments as Lola and her demented father torture Xavier's character Brent in most horrifying of manners and the genius aspect of Robin McLeavy's Lola is I hated her so much that I wanted to stab her myself about 50 times and I'm not violent ,I just love to watch it on film or TV.

There are some really strange surprises and a great ending .There isn't that much gore but there is a lot of bloody violence and there are some quick gore effects but nothing really heavy..I'm not disappointed in the least though,I was completely satisfied as a slasher freak.
Like I said ,it was well worth the wait and I can't wait to watch it again..It has a cool soundtrack as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sadistic + "effed up"! January 24, 2011
Format:DVD
** SPOILERS BELOW **

I found this one on a few 2010 "Best Of" Horror movie lists, so I thought I'd check it out. Let's just say I hope it makes it's way to America!!! The woman who plays Lola plays the role of the "weird" girl very well. She doesn't take kindly to rejection (even of the polite persuasion), and decides to get even. She and her Pops do some nasty stuff to their victims. I also appreciated (as I'm sure most of you can) that the movie took off and got exciting quickly. Some absolutely brutal + original torture scenes. Wow, just thinking of them makes me recall how truly sadistic and evil Lola's character is.

I don't give the flick 5 stars for 2 reasons: The mystery is "solved" rather easily. Come on. No one would have immediately guessed he had been kidnapped by Lola + Pops. Secondly, the ending. I'm OK w/ "Hollywood" happy endings, but in my opinion they rushed the ending. Not much tension throughout the last 10 minutes or so. It was never really a suprise what would eventually happen.

If you can find this somewhere, check it out. I'm not sure if it will be released in America, but if/when it does, hit the theatres ASAP.
