4.0 out of 5 stars A good comedy/parody more than a true horror movie., 27 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Loved Ones [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
My expectations weren't high. Over the years, I have learned that the "horror" genre reviews and ratings on Amazon tend to elevate even crappy flicks to near Godfather status. But this time, I wasn't disappointed. Once we have suspended our disbelief, the story flows smoothly along a relatively solid plot. The character's story lines converge to the climax in a consistent way: within the context, everything makes sense and is explained. This isn't a movie where secondary characters pop their heads through guillotine windows for the sole purpose of entertaining us.

The actors are excellent. No trace of the blatant amateurism that often plagues smaller budget movies. I particularly appreciated John Brumpton's performance as "Daddy": I found him marvelous is his role a soft spoken, malevolent, brutal, idiotic, devoted and always smiling father. (but then, I have to confess I lack comparison points in that type of role). I couldn't help laughing out loud every two minutes or so when he was on screen. But other characters also had their really good moments. Ever wondered if you could pee in.... hmmmm a difficult position?

The horror part is quite decent, with its usual batch of references to other movies and a few creative uses of every day items. It will of course send shivers through your spine if you are the type of person that thinks "what if it happened to me?" If not, you'll be cheering "yes, yes, this is going to be fun!

4 stars.
