Trailer for Aussie horror flick The Loved Ones may dissuade you from going to Prom

Horror fans, as well as people who have been shot down after asking someone to prom, can take comfort in knowing that the Aussie's have got your back with THE LOVED ONES, a brutal revenge tale that revolves around a psychotic girl kidnapping and torturing the guy who refused her invitation to prom.  That's some serious shit right there.

Already a smash hit around the world and in the festival circuits (including the Midnight Madness Audience Award from TIFF) the film is now coming to the US in limited release.

Don't forget the corsage:

The film stars Robin McLeavy as the psychotic kidnapper/revenge-seeker and Xavier Samual as the guy who should've said "yes" instead of "no."  While some may see this as just another "torture porn" horror flick, it's important to note that it is both a critical and audience favorite, which eludes to it likely being more than meets the eye. 

I'm intrigued.  I love seeing a woman scorned dishing out psychotic punishment.  Perhaps that's why I'm still married.

THE LOVED ONES sees a limited release on June 1st via Tugg.com.

Extra Tidbit: Have you ever thought about kidnapping and torturing someone who shot you down for prom? Wait...don't answer that.

Wait a minute...

When I watched the Trailer for this I'm like, 'wait a minute I saw this movie a few years ago!' Just to double check I went to imdb and it said this movie was made back in 2009. Its funny that's it's being released and getting all this praise in festivals now. Putting that all aside I really liked this film A LOT!!

I hope your wife doesn't read your articles.... and that you keep your drill from her...

I saw this flick a couple of months back; loved it. I recommend it if anyone gets the chance.

I saw this movie back in 2010 and after watching the trailer, I don't know how I managed to finish the entire flick. It is certainly one of the most disturbing torture porn flicks in recent memory. The violence in this is so intimate and personal that it's nearly unbearable to stomach, even for those with a cast iron lining in theirs. I'm glad it's finally getting a release, but I'll be interested to see if it rounds up a cult following.

Cool Flick!

Saw this movie a few months ago, and was greatly surprised at how original and interesting it was. Some parts are very hard to stomach. Thinking about the drill scene gives me chills. But the main girl will go down forever as one of the best horror villains ever. Loved this film!
