The Loved Ones

This is a horror movie that's better seen without knowing much about it, so I'll be intentionally vague. However, the shortness of this post does not reflect a disinterest in this movie! Far from it, we seriously love this movie and really, really wish more people would see it.

The plot unfolds something like this: It's prom season and Lola has her date all picked out. The only problem? He has no interest in escorting her anywhere. But no worries Lola's experienced in getting what she wants...

Things to watch for: The best portrayal of a princess daughter and doting father relationship in the history of horror. Shocking amounts of cringe-worthy gore. Plot twists that you can't see coming. Strong female villain that sublimely illustrates that being "girly" isn't an indicator of weakness...

You might recognize: Robin McLeavy as Nancy Lincoln (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter).

Like the perfect combination of: Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, and the non-telekinetic parts of Carrie.

Why we love it: We've never seen a horror movie quite like this one and McLeavy plays her part incredibly well. If you've ever wished to see a horror movie with a strong female baddie, this should be the next movie you watch!
