When Brent turns down his classmate Lola's invitation to the prom, she concocts a wildly violent plan for revenge. 

Starring: Xavier Samuel, Robin McLeavy, and Victoria Thaine

Directed and written by: Sean Byrne

  Remember that girl or boy you wanted to ask to the prom? Maybe you weren't sure what they would say but you asked them anyways. Of course you hoped for a yes, but then that painful no came out of their mouth. How could they say no? Feelings of embarrassment, shame, and especially anger rushed over you! The anger inside you was trying to drive you to seek some revenge, but that never happened.
  Well Lola (Robin McLeavy) is plenty angry, and has no problem seeking revenge when Brent (Xavier Samuel) turns her down for the prom. She proves to be a girl that you never want to say no to. With the help of her father, they kidnap Brent, and take him back to their house to hold their private prom. This prom’s events primarily include torturing Brent. Besides the fact that Lola and father are completely nuts, it doesn't seem to make too much sense torturing him so much. That is when the audience finds out that there is a little more to this story. 
  The little surprise isn't enough to save this movie. While it has some moments of fun watching Lola go mad it gets a little old. Then there is a pointless sub story of one of Brent's friends going to prom. It seems like just a time killer while waiting to see Lola torture Brent yet again. The only good part of the story is how the opening scene, which seems pointless at first, actually has some meaning in the end. Because “The Loved Ones” basically amounts to Lola’s madness, which grows old fast, I give this movie 1.5 pools of blood.
