It was our favourite film of this year's Film4 FrightFest event in London by a mile, so thankfully the terrific Australian horror The Loved Ones finally sees a release on October 4 on DVD and Blu-ray, and, thanks to Optimum releasing, we have three copies of the DVD to give away on Eatmybrains.com.
Darkly funny, brilliantly performed and suitably gory, The Loved Ones is easily the best horror film to come out of Australia since Greg McLean's Wolf Creek, and should stand proud on any genre-loving fan's DVD shelf.
To enter, answer the question below, enter your name and email address and press submit. The competition will close on October 11 and the three winner's names will be published on this site. Unfortunately we cannot accept entries from anyone under 18, or anyone living outside of the UK or Eire.
Full synopsis below;
Brent, a 17 year old student is grieving after the recent loss of his father in a car accident, in which he was driving. Slowly starting to pick up the pieces with the help of a new love. But thereís another girl who yearns to comfort Brent, Lola, the quietest girl in school and when Brent politely declines her invite to the school prom he enters a nightmare beyond imagining.
That polite refusal amounts to the biggest mistake Brent ever made, because whether he wants to or not, he will be attending a dance with Lola....her father will see to that. A terrifying series of events take place under a mirrored disco ball involving pink satin, glitter, syringes, nails and power drills.
Effectively blending the violence with blackly comic humour, The Loved Ones is a sexy, fun, relentlessly attacking pop-horror nightmare. Itís John Hughes gone straight to hell.
