I have to say that THE LOVED ONES is one of my favorite genre movies of the last decade. I’m still hoping for a U.S. Blu-Ray release of it eventually! And ever since discovering it, I’ve been eagerly awaiting whatever writer/director Sean Byrne would do next.
It may have taken a while, but judging from the trailer below, his follow-up will be worth the wait!
This has quickly shot up to one of my most anticipated features of 2017. Check out the trailer and synopsis below to see what I mean!
A not-so-average family wrestles with Satan in a house from hell in this heavy metal-charged shocker from the director of The Loved Ones. Diehard metalhead and struggling artist Jesse (Ethan Embry) moves with his wife (Shiri Appleby) and daughter (Kiara Glasco) to a middle-of-nowhere Texas town, unaware that the new house they got for an unbelievable deal comes with a grisly history. Disturbing demonic goings-on culminate with the appearance of Ray (The Walking Dead’s Pruitt Taylor Vince). He’s the home’s former resident, and he’s here to do the Devil’s bidding. The cranked-to-eleven soundtrack blasts Metallica, Slayer, Pantera, and a thunderous original score by doom rock legends Sunn O))).
