“…a slick, quick and surprisingly intense anti-love story” (FEARNet)
“The Loved Ones is Sixteen Candles meets The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. This is the best foreign horror flick since Let the Right One In.” (Adam Best, Flicksided)
“…a harrowing, hilarious amalgam that’ll entertain the hell out of you without making you feel bad about yourself as a person and your choice of entertainment” (HORROR-MOVIES.CA)
“…came out of left field and nailed it out of the park” (Movie Moxie)
“…an extremely twisted “love” story that will leave you never being able to look at glitter, forks, disco balls and power drills the same way.” (Brad Brisco, The Flying Brisco)
“THE LOVED ONES is brilliant, absolutely brilliant.” (Peter Hall, Horror’s Not Dead)
Brent (Samuel) never recovered from the car crash that killed his father: the crash that he was responsible for. His only solace is his loving girlfriend Holly (Thaine). But there’s another girl who yearns to comfort Brent, the quietest girl in school, Lola (McLeavy), and when he turns down her invitation to the end of year dance he enters a nightmare beyond imagining.
A terrifying series of events take place under the light of a mirrored disco ball, involving pink satin, glitter, syringes, nails and power drills. Brent must summon every ounce of will he possesses if he is to survive and prevent Lola and her father from extending their revenge to those he loves the most.
