Sean Byrne’s Aussie thriller The Loved Ones (reviewed here) was released by Paramount Insurge in limited theaters on June 1st. The release didn’t go down all that well – with a last minute switch to DCP over film along with the issuing of a cut censored for the MPAA. Thankfully, the unedited director’s cut will be available on DVD, VOD and digital download on September 11th along with special features that include Cast and Crew interviews (no word on a commentary yet).
Starring Xavier Samuel, Robin McLeavy, Jessica McNamee, Richard Wilson and Victoria Thaine, “Lola Stone asked Brent Mitchell to the prom, but Brent said no, and now he’s screwed. What happens when Lola doesn’t get what she wants? She enlists Daddy’s help to throw a prom of her own, where she is queen and Brent is king — whether he likes it or not. THE LOVED ONES is what happens when puppy love goes horribly, violently wrong. Brent should have said yes…”
