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.

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!

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 the most horrifying of manners.One of the genius aspects of Robin McLeavy's "Lola" is I hated her so much that I wanted to stab her myself on several occasions and I'm not violent ,I just love to watch it on film.

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.

Nasty high school horror that subverts hardwired viewer expectations. This Prom-Nightmare features another quiet, misunderstood teenage girl -- Lola -- but she's no Carrie. The sympathy felt for her early on -- when she is politely rejected after asking the boy she's been obsessed with to be her date for the prom -- soon evaporates. By the end of it, viewers will be cheering out loud for any grisly, vicious justice dispensed to Lola and her psychopathic father. The narrative power of this film is evident when viewers eagerly anticipating the brutal death of a 16-year-old girl and her father.

Like almost every single film with a contemporary setting that I've watched recently -- especially in the horror, thriller and action genre -- it begins with a car crash (WRITERS: Do NOT use a car crash to strand your characters or establish a run of the mill tragedy in a character's past; in particular, fight the impulse to have the car lose control after swerving to avoid a bloody figure, or a ghostly woman, or a creepy kid, who then disappear. After vehicular collisions featured prominently in four consecutive movies, I went back through the list of recently viewed titles; almost half of the last 30 films set in the present-day featured car accidents, despite often being very well written). Learning how to drive with his dad in the passenger seat, a bloody figure stumbles onto the road; he swerves off the road and into a tree, and his father is killed.

The story picks up six months later. Brent, the protagonist, still trying to cope with the loss of his father, the guilt he feels over his role in the accident, and the fear that his mother blames him for her husbands death.

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.
