The Loved Ones * Sean Byrne (2009)

Posted in horror on by .

What starts as an alright film about revolting adolescent kids with a lot of metal music soon becomes one of those torture horrors, a genre I do not see the use of.
We follow a couple of kids around prom-day. They are those metal/emo youngsters with big swings in emotion. One of them finds himself at another prom-party than he intended. In some intended “Calvaire” like atmosphere, the director probably aimed at a weird horror, but the film becomes dumber and dumber as it continues. What is more, where some details suggest a though-about story, there are also serious flaws to that very story.
Nope, not my film.
