    What a treat! Very weird, very gnarly, kind of batshit, a lot of fun!

    Lola Stone is the black heart of every teenage girl and I love her. The film suffers for floundering too much with its side characters and not giving her (brilliantly acted) insanity the screentime it deserves. I could watch hours of Lola being a murderous, lonely little brat. And that song. THAT SONG!

    I didn't love the ending, it felt kind of messy and like a bit of a cop-out, but this is still a super twisted frolic that I enjoyed immensely.

    Divertendosi con i teen movie The Loved Ones gioca con un po' di splatter e un colpo di scena. Non è perfetto, ma almeno è ragionato. #privè

    First time rewatching this since its release and it's way crazier than I remembered, the kind of stylish over the top violence I love so much. Horror fans should be all praying together for the Aussie Movie God, because he has given us some great films in the last few years.

    Should have just said yes.
    That escalated quickly.

    Love this one more and more on each watch. I'm getting nostalgic about it already.

    Forget what I've written before about THE LOVED ONES but here's this:

    Robin McLeavy as Lola is a wonderful villain.

    The gore is terrific but it's the stuff that you don't see, like in Texas Chain Saw. The clever misdirection and sound design makes for gripping stuff.

    Xavier Samuel's contorted bloody face as he frees himself from the chair to take on his captors.

    Not the umpteenth torture-porn wanna-be the poster and premise might suggest, but rather a sly, grim and darkly hilarious Aussie mash-up of Carrie and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Beautifully shot, too: the final sequence, featuring a car, a knife and a blood-spattered pink prom dress, will slowly but surely crawl its way into the pantheon of iconic horror endings.

    Delightfully demented - and quite graphic - story of heartbreak, torture, and revenge. Oh - and the end-of-school-year dance. The developments and twists were a mix of surprising yet quite cheesy, but still - a very interesting, enjoyable film with great performances from the Princess and her Daddy.

    Shunned girl gets her revenge. Except the girl is about a 7 and the one she was shunned for was about a 7.2. Plenty of gore and torture if you are into that. Sadly the last 15 minutes or so dragged, and this is only an hour and fifteen minutes long.

    just another creepy and freaky film that might be funny enough and gory enough but ultimately it is too referential and therefore predictable.

    Qué mala sensación me dejó esta película. Me gustó, creo que es bastante lograda, pero desde Eden lake que una película no me hacía sentir así de incómodo y sufrir tanto mientras la veía.

    Supongo que esto de ver películas en donde torturan gente me pone mal. Mi género favorito de terror es el de fantasmas y casas embrujadas: aunque me alteran y me muero de miedo, las disfruto mucho. Pero con películas como The loved ones, a pesar de…
