Story


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...

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..arguably the only flaw to The Loved Ones' gore-and-guffaws approach is that Byrne does not quite have enough strong material to fill a noticeably slender 80-minute running time..”
by Leigh Paatsch [Herald Sun]
“..its tone is too light, its manner too cavalier, to be bogged down by the kind of portentous posturing that made Eli Roth's film reek of self-importance..”
by Calum Marsh [Slant Magazine]
“..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..”
by Dennis Harvey [Variety]
