THE LOVED ONES – TWISTED PROM NIGHT
FRI 28 AUG | 8PM | Arc | $12/$10
2009| R | 84 mins | 35mm| AUSTRALIA | D: Sean Byrne
Things take a horrific turn for the worst when Brent turns down Lola’s invitation to the school dance. Because what Lola wants, Lola gets … with a little help from her daddy and some homemade tools of torture. A truly twisted, deeply violent and darkly funny addition to the horror genre.
We are thrilled to be opening our doors to the public again, but the rules of social distancing still apply. And what’s more awkward and socially distanced than a school dance! Come dressed in your best twisted prom night fashion – with prizes for best dressed – and have your polaroid taken under our balloon arch. There will be paper crowns for everyone!

‘Speaking of reusing old premises, The Loved Ones shows the right way to do it … this outrageously creepy and entertaining horror flick’ – Film.com
‘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’ – Slant Magazine
