    Has subtext as present and visible as the disco light, but torture porn attempts at screams are tingled w/ laughs at stupidity of it all.

    halfway through it it had already made my top 10 and, i dare say, top 5
    this is ridiculously amazing and for the entirety of the movie you find it impossible to keep your eyes off the screen no matter how "bad" it got
    gonna be watching this again pretty soon since i must show it to literally everyone i know

    Pretty decent thriller, well done and pretty funny at points too.

    Well done, really. It was really well directed, with nice camera work, and some gruesome details. It's able to overcome a lot of issues that many films like this cannot, so kudos to them. Quite fun.

    When a high school boy rejects a girl's invitation to the school dance, he encounters the bloody, painful truth of that old saw: Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

    The Loved Ones revolves largely around torrture, but it doesn't fall into the category of "torture porn." It sets up the characters very well prior to the gruesome events kicking off and makes you root for the protagonist to escape rather than rooting for the torture to top the…

    No pude ver en Sitges the devil's candy, y realmente me hubiese gustado seguir este director que en esta película me ha dejado impresionado por su mala leche y su gran tensión. Esta anti-Carrie por así decirlo se sale de madre uniendo varios subgeneros del terror, una lolita que no acepta un no y que no la puedes complacer aunque sea la reina del baile. Lo único negativo el relleno de la pareja de "freaks" y el último segundo.

    Adored this film since I first seen it and was great to revisit. Hilarious, insane, intense, nasty and brilliantly made. It's pure madness. Was watching with a big group of friends who hadn't seen it so it was particularly fun watching them all wince!

    You do you, Australian Film Industry. You do you...

    The Loved Ones has some good scenes - really. There are some great moments where the room cringed at the visual gore, and I got to see my friend (oh Jon) excitedly applause at a moment of hope after an extended scene of torture.

    It also has a really bad set up, a bunch of mediocre performances and a side plot that is ~almost~ irrelevant and hideously boring - the film…

    Robin McLeavy owns this film. Her portrayal as the demented, delusional and very disturbed Lola is so captivating, this doesn't take away from the rest of the cast who's performances are brilliant, in fact I can't think of a weak link in the casting area. The film is stunningly shot and looks beautiful. I saw this first at Frighfest 2010, it was the last film of the night I was tired snd had bum ache but that was all forgotton…

    Pervers, sadistisch, hilarisch en origineel. Exactly my cup of tea. "The Loved Ones" begint wat bizar, ik wist niet goed hoe ik hier naar moest kijken, maar na een twintigtal minuten werd het duidelijk. Het weet het donkere, het grappige en het serieuze perfect aan elkaar te weven en doet dit met een gezonde dosis panache en virtuositeit. Het danst om elk cliché heen en schudt continu aapjes uit zijn mouw. Ze hebben mij…

    Is it wrong of me to say that I fucking LOVED this movie. Minus its cliches and its absurd plot basis it's a lot smarter than your generic torture porn movie. It's basically everything I Spit on Your Grave wishes it was and then some.

    Initial thoughts...

    This one was every bit as twisted as I'd heard. Think 'Texas Chain Saw Massacre' meets 'Carrie'. I liked it, even though I can't get that damn song out of my head.
