    Not what I expected. Really not much to this, but still enjoyed it. It works. Not as good as "Audition" or "Hard Candy" but still solid. Only issue was the attractive female lead. Much like the casting in the "Carrie" remake, I just don't believe a girl this hot would become a fucked up social outcast driven to develop into an insane murderous predator.

    The Loved Ones is a slick little horror that belies its tiny budget but whilst it is effectively creepy it is also quite sadistic, catering more for the slasher/schlock crowd that those looking for deeper metaphor.

    A torture porn I can definitely stomach. Robin McLeavy is perfect in this film and takes the common sexual repression horror trope to a whole new level. You can try to predict this movie...but good luck.

    This Australian slasher-flick is both artsy and gorily disturbing. Melodically clouded in an 80s-themed soundtrack although occurring in modern times, this prom-night film turns into a hysteria-filled gorefest in an instant. Plot: An apathetic goth is kidnapped by a psychotic teen stalker who tortures him in the most brutally un-watchable yet awesomely watchable ways. If that doesn’t make sense, it really won’t until you watch it. Bottom line: WATCH IT. IT IS INSANE.

    Brutal, ugly, sadistic torture porn masquerading as a nihilistic "black comedy" but there is no humor, only brutality, horrifying mutilation, horrible cruelty, and meaningless "retribution".
    Almost more shocking than the sociopathic aspects of this puerile mess is the almost jaw-dropping universal praise for this film, called "smart & funny" by several different reviews. But this is not a review of other reviews.
    I am not a squeamish person by nature--but for me to accept (simulated) brutality and violence on-screen, there must…

    Well-made and bat-shit crazy with some very impressive bloody scenes. Robin McLeavy is especially fantastic as jilted psycho bitch, Lola.

    I always find films from Australia fascinating, no matter what genre, something about the vast expansiveness of the country, coupled by the quirky behaviour of most of the people as evidenced by the films (you don't need the horror genre for that, even supposed romantic comedies like Muriel's Wedding hit the mark) makes them an unique watch, before you even take in the often superb cinematography and the visual vistas that encompass the country.

    It's a shame here that they…

    Ozploitation Film. Gorno. Shows promise but script needed a bit of a redo. Aussie accents still funny. Pycho girl villain very, very good tho. Victim "final guy" bland, naff, let's his hair do the acting.

    "You've got 10 seconds to go, or Daddy's gonna nail it to the chair!"

    Easily one of the best films to come out of Australia in the last decade and Robin McLeavy's performance should be up there with other iconic performances in the horror genre. Twisted, gory and fun.
