The Loved Ones, as the PR tells us, is "like the bastard lovechild of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Pretty in Pink", which I think says a lot.

I've felt so stupid all year knowing I could have seen this at last year's MIFF and didn't. Since then it has gone on to win a major prize at the Toronto International Film Festival and spark some almighty buzz within the local industry. Those who have seen it have not left disappointed. The world now awaits on the word of David "Shaky Cam" Stratton!
