->''What Lola wants, Lola gets.''

'''''The Loved Ones''''' is a Aussie horror (though very darkly comical) film released during the Fall of 2010. After turning down Lola's invitation to the prom, teenager Brent finds himself tied up at the girl's home, trapped in a hellish imitation of a prom with Lola and her sick father.

It's ''Literature/{{Misery}}'' meets ''Literature/{{Carrie}}'' meets ''Film/{{Audition}}''.

The film is receiving a theatrical release in the United States during the summer of 2012.

----
!!This movie contains the following tropes:

* AlmostKiss - Lola and her father.
* AxeCrazy - Lola, Lola, Lola. . . .
* BewareTheQuietOnes - Both Lola and her father. However there is a major difference. Lola seems quiet and shy at first, but is actually very loud and wicked once Brent is captured. Her father on the other hand seems very reserved and quiet in personality, even when doing horrible things.
* BlackComedy - And how!
* BodyHorror - Quite a lot. Poor Brent.
* DisproportionateRetribution - Say no to Lola because you already have a girlfriend? You'd better watch out.
* {{Gorn}}
* ElectraComplex - Lola. She is clearly jealous and hateful to her mother, and wants her father to love her back. [[spoiler: After her father's death, she makes sure to kill her mother. Something she likely wanted to do a long time ago.]]
* EnfanteTerrible - Lola's been torturing boys for a long time.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes - Lola and her father are a disturbing pair, but clearly care for one another.
* EvenEvilHasStandards - Lola's father is angry that Brent hit a girl.
* GoryDiscretionShot
* KickTheDog / MoralEventHorizon - showing us right from the start that Brent's kidnappers mean business.
* {{Leitmotif}} - ''Am I Not Pretty Enough'' for Lola
* LoveMakesYouCrazy
* ParentalIncest - Although Lola and her father have never slept together, it is clear that both want to. Lola being the aggressor in this case. Unlike her, her father at least seems somewhat hesitant, and understandably so.
* ShownTheirWork - Lola and her father's method of [[spoiler: lobotomizing their victims with a power drill]] is similar to Jeffrey Dahmer's method.
* {{Yandere}} - Alternately, she could just be CuteAndPsycho, especially since [[spoiler:she was actually in love with her father not any of the boys she kidnapped and tortured.]]
