Movie Review: The Loved Ones


Directed by Sean Byrne and starring a hot, young, talented cast including Xavier Samuel (Eclipse), Robin McLeavy (Streetcar Named Desire with Cate Blanchett), Jessica McNamee (Packed to the Rafters), Victoria Thaine (Caterpillar Wish) and Richard Wilson (Clubland) with John Brumpton (Last Ride) playing ‘Daddy’ it’s a vivid, sexy rollercoaster of a ride that takes the conventions of horror and runs them off the rails.

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.

I thought this would be an interesting and exciting movie... turn out quite disappointing!! Nothing too thrill except that I can't stop thinking how "sickening" the dad and the daughter were!!!

After the basic introducing of the characters plus the setting/storyline.... The movie begins where the lonely, shy and quiet girl's Lola attacked Brent from behind and bound him to a chair at a table in her living room.

And the sick and psychopathic stuff happened.. Lola and her dad torturing Brent...

Well, nothing much to say.... Just go see the movie yourself if you enjoy gore and psycho movie (I like, but this was abit boring... as some scenes were abit dragful). Maybe you will like it.

Anyway... I quite like the storyline... if only they have cuter casts(wahahhaaa).

My Rating: 6/10
