The Loved Ones (2009) Trailer

The Loved Ones is a fun looking film out of Australia that is playing several smaller festivals around the country. I don't see it getting a wide release but, there's word that it may get a DVD release here in September. The film is about a boy named Brent who turns down his classmate's invitation to go to the dance with her. So, the classmate, named Lola, gets her dad to kidnap poor Brent and stages a fun little dance in their own house. It looks a bit silly at times....but, it definitely has some interesting imagery in its trailer. Australia has produced some really good films in the last few years...including Wolf Creek and, I'll be interested in checking this one out.

Here's the synopsis as provided by our lovely friends over at IMDB...

In order to avoid a ghostly figure in the road, high school senior Brent Mitchell wraps his car around a tree, killing his father. Constantly confronted by his mother's emotional collapse after the accident, Brent escapes into a marijuana fueled world of loud metal music to block the pain and guilt. Dejected and out of sorts, he has a shot at happiness with his girlfriend Holly, a grounded, caring girl with drop dead good looks, a dream date for the high school prom. But his plans are thwarted by a disturbing series of events that take place under a mirrored disco ball, involving pink satin, glitter, syringes, nails, power drills and a secret admirer. Brent has become the prom king at a macabre, sadistic event where he is the entertainment.

And here's the fun trailer as provided by our lovely friends over at Trailer Addict...
