This was so disturbing, which is why I loved it. While some scenes were a little over the top and unnecessarily, I still found myself during some parts gasping out loud while thinking: "Are they really allowed to put this in a movie?"

The love one is hard to watch yet you can't stop watching seeing this crazy girl and her dad torture a tied up teen is crazy to watch as the movie progresses the more we find out about the father and daughters life it truly is a torture porn but a good one

One of the most overrated movies of all time. It was a huge waste of time. I'm giving it 2 stars only because I have watched worse movies in my life.

If you were like me at one point , you haven't seen it and been avoiding it for so long.

I waited so long but had to give in due to all the good reviews. And I was wrong for not looking at it before. Not just some teenage hacker flick.

I find that good psychological thrillers or horrors are hard to come by; a needle in a haystack.

The Loved Ones has satisfied me. It brought a very maniacal and twisted perspective on over the top High School horror. This movie plays on a lot of people's subtle insecurities about 'the quiet ones tend to be the psychopaths'; taking a new perspective on those awkward or quiet girls. Since I happen to be one of them, I can relate; but the music, acting, and general feel in the first 10 minutes of this movie had me hooked and grinning for more.

The actress who plays Lola (McLeavy) has nearly out performed most of the American Box Office actresses I have seen; convincingly using the right facial features and exaggerations to really entice me. She plays the troubled and disillusioned girl with such finesse it seems natural. Few actresses have played this role well and Winona Ryder's portrayal in Girl Interrupted was the last one I can really recall doing the role any natural justice.

I continued to watch this movie for McLeavy; but it wouldn't have been without the director's keen eye. The supporting cast was great as well. This will definitely be a movie I watch again down the road and will not forget.

Once again, I can't understand why this movie is getting such glowing recommendations. It's just a slow pretentious schlock with uninteresting characters and a really blah story.

I love horror. I love gore. I love torture scenes and body horror. But this... this just felt like it was taking the piss out of all those things.

You're better off watching one of the Saw sequels.

This was actually a really bad movie. Not sure how this got a 98% on rotten tomatoes.

I think I watched a different movie because I've read all this praise and I thought it was silly and predictable, Terrible acting and a lackluster ending, This film is one reason I don't listen to critics.

I really enjoyed it, I liked the acting, the gore, and everything. It was a nice rare treat, since proper US horror is pretty much dead. It Follows was mediocre and boring.

The craziest, scariest and funniest "Prom" horror movie I've ever watched.

One of the best movies of the genre I have seen and up in my Top 10 of all time now! How this was overlooked back in 2009 is beyond me. It's Pulp Fiction meets Basic Instinct meets Texas Chainsaw Massacre! This movie has it all. Extremely well written, acted and directed. Spell binding and magnificently gruesome, without getting off track with the story line. See it!
