Trailer: The Loved Ones
I'm waaaay too squeamish to enjoy horror films, but there's something appealingly offbeat this newly released trailer for The Loved Ones, so I may have to give it a go.
***Update: According to this blog, the trailer gives away too much, in which case you might not want to watch it after all! Consider yourself warned:
What do you make of it?
The synopsis reads:
Brent (Xavier Samuel) never recovered from the car crash that killed his father: the crash that he was responsible for. His only solace is his loving girlfriend Holly (Victoria Thaine). But there's another girl who yearns to comfort Brent, the quietest girl in school, Lola (Robin McLeavy), and when he turns down her invitation to the end of year dance he enters a nightmare beyond imagining.
A terrifying series of events take place under the light of a mirrored disco ball, involving pink satin, glitter, syringes, nails and power drills. Brent must summon every ounce of will he possesses if he is to survive and prevent Lola and her father from extending their revenge to those he loves the most.
***UPDATE: Australian release date: 28 October 2010
