Lola asked Brent to the prom, but he said no. This brutal, horrifying, and darkly humorous film shows what happens when love goes wrong. 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.

We Got This Covered by

There is clearly a lot of ambition to The Loved Ones and the near-brilliant leading performances help make the film a unique and terrifying experience.


Variety by Dennis Harvey

Transcends mere torture porn -- though there's plenty for the squeamish to squirm over here -- in its deftly controlled mix of empathy, grotesquerie and sardonic humor.


Boxoffice Magazine by Pam Grady

Like Carrie without the telekinesis, this horror movie replaces the supernatural with blunt brutality and dark humor to terrific effect.
