New Film: Loved Ones

A new film, Loved Ones has a MySpace page but, other than the synopsis below, not a huge amount of detail as of yet. There is a teaser video on their page, but no film content in it so far. That said, I love the musical theme going on over the teaser. More details as they become available but for now the synopsis is as follows:

“Loved Ones is a contemporary Vampire story set in present day Seattle. Serbia (the son of an Oracle whose father sat at the right hand of Zeus), once roamed the earth as the man Judas Iscariot, and is now the leader of an entire race of Vampires. His goal, as it has been since the crucifixion of Christ, is to bring into captivity, enslave, and feed upon the entire human race.

“Taw, a retiring Police Detective whose life up until now has been filled with car chases, shootouts, and family barbeques, is currently up against the biggest foe of his life. The question, however, is whether this foe is Serbia or himself. The suspense heightens as Taw Jones is placed in the precarious position of choosing between his lovely wife Beth or the beast who is determined to bring evil upon all of humankind.

“With characters such as the sexy and seductive Hillary, the off-the-hook Vampire slayer Gus, the hot and sultry Isabella, a junkie-pimp called Jesus, the meek and mild Mr. Tingle, a street-hardened cop by the name of Tony, and Taw's loving wife Beth, you are bound to be able to relate to at least one person… even if you aren't yet a Vampire.

“With an all-star cast that is filled with seasoned actors, Nashville singers, and some of the best makeup, costume, and tech people in the movie industry, this is a film you won't want to miss. However, it does come with a warning of sorts :
"If you are faint of heart or pregnant, do not watch this movie, because it will disturb you".”

It seems that low budget films of this sort go out of their way to conjure up kooky character and plot descriptions...possibly as a mask to the actual quality of the film on offer.

Indeed, there is a note of desperation in " are bound to be able to relate to at least one person..."

Anthony, I will reserve judgement but... well it would be easier to judge if they had some filmed footage. I'll leave it at that for now but I can't say you're going to be wrong.
