REVIEW: THE LOVED ONES
Hell hath no fury…like a prom queen scorned in the horrifying thriller THE LOVED ONES, debuting on DVD (with UltraViolet™), On Demand and for Digital Download on September 11, 2012 from Paramount Home Media Distribution. Winner of the Toronto International Film Festival’s Midnight Madness People’s Choice award, THE LOVED ONES is “brutal, bloody and black as all hell” (Rolling Stone) and “a beautiful, fresh and engaging horror film that’s a must see” (Bloody Disgusting). When Brent (Xavier Samuel, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse) rejects his classmate Lola’s (Robin McLeavy, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) invitation to the prom, he sets off a chain of events that leave him the victim of her twisted revenge. Now he's the only guest at Lola's terrifying and demented prom, and must fight to survive what could be his final dance. Will Brent live through this nightmare of drills, nails, glitter and syringes…or become one of Lola's "loved ones"?

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.
DVD: The film is
presented in widescreen in a 1.78:1 aspect ration
preserving its theatrical format. The picture is just
flawless. Not only the picture looks great in
this release, also the sound it is good, a 5.1 Dolby Digital
in English and Indonesian/Bahasa that provides a
good complement to the picture. It also includes
English and Spanish subtitles.
