  • Summary: Lola Stone asked Brent Mitchell to the prom, but Brent said no, and now he's screwed. What happens when Lola doesn't get what she wants? She enlists Daddy's help to throw a prom of her own where she is queen and Brent is king, whether he likes it or not. The Loved Ones is what happens when puppy love goes horribly, violently wrong. Brent should have said yes. (Paramount Pictures) Expand

    Like Carrie without the telekinesis, this horror movie replaces the supernatural with blunt brutality and dark humor to terrific effect.

    Sean Byrne endows his rote slasher material with the kind of blackly comic wit and levity that virtually guarantee its entry into the contemporary midnight-movie canon.

    Transcends mere torture porn -- though there's plenty for the squeamish to squirm over here -- in its deftly controlled mix of empathy, grotesquerie and sardonic humor.

    the loved ones is one of the creepiest, funniest, downright strangest films i've seen, it benefits from a slew of great performances, perfectly handled gallows humor, and chilling violence, for any self-respecting horror fan, it's a must see. Expand

    Einer der besten Coming of Age Filme, die ich bisher gesehen habe. Gruslig, nicht unblutig, absolut innovativ in der Kombination "Horror" und "Teen-Movie" und sehr stylisch. Ich kann ihn nur empfehlen! Expand

    The story and the idea were smart. The actors were good and what happened in the film was interesting. I liked the movie though it was a bit cruel. However, It is one of the best thrillers I' ve seen and i recommend it to anybody who has no problems with violence Expand

    This is one go the great horror movies that are utterly disturbing, but you cannot look away. It gets more and more intense and horrifying as it goes along, with a brilliantly twisted performance by Robin McLeavy. A few moments of humour and a true Australian grounding make this a fine film.
