‘The Loved Ones’ Now In Theaters, Digitally & Cut Down

14_the_loved_ones_042012

Paramount Insurge has officially released the 2009 Aussie horror thriller The Loved Ones in limited theaters where demanded. Using Tugg as the source of the push, what they didn’t tell you is that Sean Byrne’s indie has been trimmed by 9 seconds to appease the MPAA and land an R-rating. Furthermore, this caused the flick to be released digitally, instead of on 35mm. It’s an unfortunate turn of events, but for those of you who have yet to see it, I feel this is still a great opportunity to check it out in theaters. Only, buyer beware.

Here’s what I had to say about the film back in 2009:

I’m digging on this new breed of subgenre, which is brutal, uncompromising and hyper-realistic. Carried by strong performances (by everyone) and stunning cinematography by Simon Chapman, ‘The Loved Ones’ is a beautiful, fresh and engaging horror film that’s a must see.

    Of course they would do that. God damn it. Oh well, you know Leonardo da Vinci’s painting Mona Lisa was cut too to make it acceptable for the public to enjoy. That’s why she doesn’t have eyebrows.

    I enjoyed the movie to a degree…but didnt love it like some seem to. I don’t see what would have needed to be cut though, everything seen was on par with SAW film gore. Stupid MPAA.
