The Loved Ones (2009)

Robin McLeavy in a memorable turn as a jilted prom princess.
Daddy loves you.
At a glance:
A memorably graphic Aussie flick shot entirely in Victoria, Melbourne, about the horrors of turnin down the wrong girl for a prom date. Underpinned by strong themes of guilt and loss, the film title is significant but I won't ruin it for you. Do watch before meals. Hooray for depravity and brokenness. Hooray for FUBAR families.
Bad news on the doorstep:
Written and directed by a tryin filmmaker named Sean Bryne, the film does start slow and you iPhone punks might not have the patience to last out till the rewardin climax. You'll just have to take my word for it that it's not your average drill (lame pun intended).
Perennial wonderment:
Who is this Robin McLeavy? She plays Lola The Princess, the jilted prom date. Sure gave Kathy Bates a run for her money. Completely owned the movie and acted everyone out of sight. And who is this Jesse McNamee? What a body. She's in The Vow (2012) next, so let's see what she does in that.
Reminds me of:
Misery (1990) and Carrie (1976).
Jesse McNamee obliges with some skin in the R-rated movie.
You won't see that in The Vow (2012).
Most memorable line:
"You've got 10 seconds to go or Daddy's gonna nail it to the chair."
Amacam joker, berapa bintang lu mau kasi?
Compact, effective, old-fashioned violent goodness.You'll learn to have more respect for that Bosch power drill lyin in your toolbox from now on. ★★★★
