Hot Take: The Loved Ones (2009)

March 8th, 2021

Join us for the February deep dive that just wasn't meant to be, now taking its final form as this month's hot take of The Loved Ones. If you're late to the Valentine's (or Gallentine's) day party, look no further than this shockingly violent dark comedy centered around a girl who's only guilty of asking what we're all secretly thinking: "Am I not pretty enough?"

If you have anything to add to the discussion, please don't hesitate to do so by reaching out to us on social media @TheFilmFlamers, or call our hotline and leave us a message at 972-666-7733!
