“The Loved Ones”, is about a teenage girl named Lola aka “Princess” (played by Robin McLeavy), and her deranged and semi incestuous father. When Lola asks Brent out (played by Xavier Samuel) to the dance, he politely declines because he has a girlfriend already, which Lola knew about but decided to ask him out anyway. As everyone in their class is getting ready for the dance, Brent finds himself trapped and bound to a chair and also finds himself confusingly staring into the eyes of Lola, and her weird father. Throughout the film, Lola’s father does actually demonstrate a incredibly obsessed relationship with his daughter, because she knows that he would do anything for her, even if it means capturing the boy Lola has a crush on just because he declined her offer for the dance. As Brent continues to panic and is taken into the twisted, gory and chilling world, he is only in for the agony that Lola is about to bring upon him. This Australian film is a mixture of “The People Under the Stairs,” and “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation.” This independent Australian film is one to love, and die for! …. and once again the only thing to fear in this world is an insane person, who thinks that they are always right.
