10/4/11 – 2011 OCTOBER HORROR MOVIE RECOMMENDATION #4 – The Loved Ones.

The Loved Ones

This movie has been on my mind lately. It’s one of those interesting little gems that sticks with you long after it’s over. As an obsessive fan of the series Twin Peaks, this movie has Twin Peaks written all over it, yet with an Aussie twist. There’s so much style to this flick that it’s practically overflowing. Some shots are so beautiful that you forget you’re watching something really, really disturbing. It’s basically a simple story of a twisted girl who REALLY wants a prom date, and her daddy who will do anything o make it happen for her. Yet, even through its simplicity, you’re transfixed for every second. You never really know exactly where it’s going to go, and when it does, at times your jaw is on the floor. It’s definitely an experience that horror fans will love. The performances are spot on, the gore is aplenty, and the style meter goes to 11. When Australia brings it, they bring it.

  1. Thanks for recommending this movie. I just saw it, it’s amazing. Like you said, beautiful shots, yet very disturbing.
    The power the girl and her father have, and the disturbing shots, it kind of reminds me of Salo Or 120 Days Of Solom. You’ve probably already seen that, but if you haven’t, you should definitely watch it!
