John Ferguson
Radio Times

The torture-porn genre gets a Day-Glo makeover in this hilariously deranged Ocker shocker.

Badass Digest

Sean Byrne has established himself as one hell of a guy to watch with his first feature film, delivering something bright, brand new and deeply felt.

The Loved Ones is a breath of fresh air for the so-called "torture porn" sub-genre of horror movies.

It's a terrifying masterpiece that turns high school drama into a literal dead zone.

Film School Rejects

The most severe violence in the film is tempered by moments of effective dark humor.

We Got This Covered

There is clearly a lot of ambition to The Loved Ones and the near-brilliant leading performances help make the film a unique and terrifying experience.

It's got heart, gore, suspense, and an unusual family-style drama you won't likely forget... and Lola is a terrific character: pretty scary in pink!

Moviegoers with an aversion to violence will stay away, but genre buffs with a taste for the extreme should ensure healthy ticket sales.

Those with a fondness for cinematic evildoing might find themselves richly entertained by this macabre feature, which somehow manages the finer points of grief and festering wounds with exceptional directorial skill.

Slant Magazine

Sean Byrne endows his rote slasher material with the kind of blackly comic wit and levity that virtually guarantee its entry into the contemporary midnight-movie canon.

Horror fans are going to love this, but those who recognize a filmmaking skill to go along with the gore may appreciate it even more.

Edible roadkill, Frontal lobotomies, teenage psychopaths and Kasey Chambers music....Precisely what every school dance should feature, right? A surprising, fast, stylised Aussie torture porn.

Australian horror film The Loved Ones proves that it is the quiet ones you have to watch out for.

At the Movies (Australia)

The morbid jokes and the shocking moments of horror, all played straight by an excellent cast, plus some moments of grisly originality, combine in a film that's better than the average for this sort of admittedly dodgy exploitation piece.

Jim Schembri
The Age (Australia)

A blood-spattered, tongue-in-cheek horror comedy that features plenty of low-rent gore, some extra-cheesy lines and some terrific performances.
