The distribution & release schedule (lack thereof, I suppose is more accurate) of THE LOVED ONES was to bluntly put it, terrible. We reported back in May about Paramount Insurge giving it a limited release through Tugg in June but that’s come and gone. It’s a bummer to see a major studio like Paramount fumble on giving THE LOVED ONES the widespread opening it deserves, but this should ease the pain a bit. THE LOVED ONES is hitting DVD September 11th! Read the press release below for all the details:
Hell hath no fury…like a prom queen scorned in the horrifying thriller THE LOVED ONES, debuting on DVD, On Demand and for Digital Download on September 11, 2012 from Paramount Home Media Distribution. Winner of the Toronto International Film Festival’s Midnight Madness People’s Choice award, THE LOVED ONES is “brutal, bloody and black as all hell” (Rolling Stone) and “a beautiful, fresh and engaging horror film that’s a must see” (Bloody Disgusting). When Brent (Xavier Samuel, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse) rejects his classmate Lola’s (Robin McLeavy, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) invitation to the prom, he sets off a chain of events that leave him the victim of her twisted revenge. Now he’s the only guest at Lola’s terrifying and demented prom, and must fight to survive what could be his final dance. Will Brent live through this nightmare of drills, nails, glitter and syringes…or become one of Lola’s “loved ones”?
