Thanks to all of you who entered our recent competition to win one of three copies of the frankly brilliant film The Loved Ones on DVD, thanks to Optimum Releasing.
We have now drawn the three winners names at random and they are listed below;
Darkly funny, brilliantly performed and suitably gory, The Loved Ones is easily the best horror film to come out of Australia since Greg McLean's Wolf Creek. See below for more information on the film.
Brent, a 17 year old student is grieving after the recent loss of his father in a car accident, in which he was driving. Slowly starting to pick up the pieces with the help of a new love. But there’s another girl who yearns to comfort Brent, Lola, the quietest girl in school and when Brent politely declines her invite to the school prom he enters a nightmare beyond imagining.
That polite refusal amounts to the biggest mistake Brent ever made, because whether he wants to or not, he will be attending a dance with Lola....her father will see to that. A terrifying series of events take place under a mirrored disco ball involving pink satin, glitter, syringes, nails and power drills.
Effectively blending the violence with blackly comic humour, The Loved Ones is a sexy, fun, relentlessly attacking pop-horror nightmare. It’s John Hughes gone straight to hell.
