The two clips come after the official trailer, which you can view here.
The Loved Ones has been featured at various festivals for almost a year now, including slots at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival and this month’s FrightFest in London, where it’s attracted a lot of praise from critics and audience members alike.
The film has been directed by Sean Byrne and features performances from Xavier Samuel, Jessica McNamee, Robin McLeavy, Victoria Thaine, Richard Wilson and John Brumpton.
Synopsis: In order to avoid a ghostly figure in the road, high school senior Brent Mitchell (Samuel) wraps his car around a tree, killing his father. Constantly confronted by his mother’s emotional collapse after the accident, Brent escapes into a marijuana fueled world of loud metal music to block the pain and guilt. Dejected and out of sorts, he has a shot at happiness with his girlfriend Holly (Thaine), a grounded, caring girl with drop dead good looks, a dream date for the high school prom. But his plans are thwarted by a disturbing series of events that take place under a mirrored disco ball, involving pink satin, glitter, syringes, nails, power drills and a secret admirer. Brent has become the prom king at a macabre, sadistic event where he is the entertainment.

If you’re lucky enough to live in Australia, then you can see the film on September 30. If not, you’ll have to wait a while longer, as The Loved Ones still doesn’t have a UK release date.
