Prom horror film The Loved Ones is finally being released stateside!

3 years agoby:

Paramount Insurge has picked up the rights to release THE LOVED ONES in theaters this summer.  I have been hearing buzz about the Australian horror film since 2009 and have yet to see it, but when you are proclaiming it to be "SIXTEEN CANDLES meets THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE," I am intrigued.

The trailers have been up on our site for a while now. They really want the main character, Lola, to be considered amongst the upper echelon of horror icons. Take a look.

This is the first feature for writer-director Sean Byrne.  The film stars Robin McLeavy, who has a recurring role on AMC's HELL ON WHEELS and will be in the upcoming ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER.

Here's the plot for the film.  Lola Stone asked Brent Mitchell to the prom, but Brent said no, and now he's screwed. What happens when Lola doesn't get what she wants? She enlists Daddy's help to throw a prom of her own where she is queen and Brent is king, whether he likes it or not. THE LOVED ONES is what happens when puppy love goes horribly, violently wrong. Brent should have said yes.

Paramount is taking a cue from PARANORMAL ACTIVITY and will be releasing the film based on fan demand. From the official website you can enter to bring the movie to your local theater. From what I can tell, it would be worth the time to do it.

Extra Tidbit: HELL ON WHEELS was passed off by many as DEADWOOD Lite, but I really enjoyed the first season.

Lot of debate over at AICN over whether or not this is just another 'torture porn' flick. I'd like to hear some opinions here. Cause I LOVE real horror w/ a passion and HATE torture porn w/ even more passion . . .

This movie was FUCKING AWESOME. I'll certainly make up for my sin of watching a bootleg and go to the theaters for this.

More Well Recieved Horror... Yes Please.

Australia's really coming into their own with good flicks flying out of there every day. Haven't seen this yet so I'm still a little nervous (horror has been a shit genre over the past few years), but I'm always down for good-times with gore. TIDBIT: Hell on Wheels was awesome, and very separate to Deadwood in regards to storytelling and plot, I hope it doesn't share the same fate as Deadwood, that was a horror of it's own right.

It's about time. Saw this couple years ago. I think horror audience will appreciate this movie. Good performances.
