Madman Entertainment is releasing The Loved Ones on November 4.

Director Sean Byrne and lead actress Robin McLeavy are coming to town for a special Talking Pictures Q&A Screening at Luna Leederville on Nov 3 (6.30pm).

BRENT (Xavier Samuel) has never recovered from the night of 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 prom he enters a nightmare beyond imagining.

Hours before the dance, Brent is abducted and taken to Lola’s home by her demented DADDY (John Brumpton) who’s determined to make his princess’ dream come true.

Now imprisoned in Lola’s home Brent discovers that her feelings for him aren’t the only thing she’s been keeping a secret, and that he must summon every ounce of will he possesses if he is to survive and prevent Lola and her father from extending her revenge to those he loves most.

THE LOVED ONES is a vivid, sexy, rollercoaster that takes the conventions of horror and runs them off the rails.
