Never saw the movie, but from what I've heard it was a bunny and not a kitty.

... but I'm doubtful about your comment of belonging to the "torture" subgenre.. I don't like it at all.

I still have no clue what the name of lead guy is. Is it a toungue-in-cheek clue to a Haute Tension type twist?

"Wolf Creek" was the best horror film released in the last 10 years... closest any film in the genre came to capturing the tone and terror of the origional TCM. So, yeah, I'll give this one a look as well. Thanks for the solid review.

I can't watch Australian movies. Whether it's a lame comedy like Muriel's Wedding or a sub-par horror flick like Wolf Creek, they're always filled with ugly bad actors with horrible accents, dreary photography and repugnant characters. Urgh.

I suppose while we are at it, we should have the atlas changed so that the Earth's axis goes directly through your backyard, eh?

First and foremost, GREAT name! So great, in fact, that I can almost forgive your comments referring to 'Wolf Creek' as a 'sub-par' horror flick!? ALMOST. The 'dreary photography' of the Australian Outback served the film well, by setting the tone to the events that followed. The dreariness of the camera reflected the dreariness of the characters ensuing plight. But where the film really succeeded, was in establishing REAL characters (could of been any one of us), in a most absurd (but entirely plausible) situation, then forcing us (the audience) to question ourselves, if ever as to be so unfortunate as to be found in the same, or similar situation (very much in the same way that the origional TCM did back in the day). It was fucking brilliant! More so, it gave us one of the most memorable screen villians EVER to terrorize the silver screen! EVER.

I saw The Loved Ones at the premiere midnight screening at last year's Toronto International Film Festival. It's a fantastic horror movie and one of the best experiences I've ever had at the theatre.

Was my favourite Midnight Madness flick! Quint nailed it with his review. It was great with a lot of laughs (the kind that Midnight Madness fans want) and a lot of chills. There was a side plot that was good for a bit of relief after some tense scenes - but it did feel a bit tacked on. Regardless, it's a fantastic film and I can't wait to see it again.

He would then be the one with the horrible accent.

As long as the torture shit dosn't overwhelm the movie as a whole it sounds like a classic. Not being a remake is a plus for horror movies lately.
March 20, 2010, 7:36 p.m. CST
I saw every film that screened at the midnight madness portion of the toronto film festival & this was by far the best one. It won the audience choice award. Its a mindblowing debut. Everything Quint says is exactly how I felt. Its one of those films that reminds you why you love movies so much. I hope it gets north american distribution soon, I need to see it again.

as everyone clearly knows by now, its nearly impossible to find a solid horror film getting any substantial release in the US. so for the past 5 or so years I've done my best to scour the international genre market, and this movie sounds like one to make a mental note of. I especially like hearing how well the film was actually shot... thats one of the things I love about really good foreign horror; be it French, South Korean, Australian, Spanish... some of their best horror stuff is not only legitimately scary, but its gorgeous to look at. its like directors in the US are under the impression that their horror has to be muddy, poorly edited visual hodge-podge or it loses its credibility.

Sad but true.

....i cant fucking believe i haven't heard a thing about this flick, sounds amazing! dunno whether im out of the loop or whether this film just hasn't had ANY promotion, but this is the first im hearing about it. will def keep an eye out for it.

It's good. Lots of squirming in the seats. Lots of awkward laughter. Lots of ironic music: "Am I not pretty enough..." Good aussie flick, I can see this getting distribution soon.
