The Loved Ones
A girl’s first love is always her father; he’s the man who is willing to do anything and everything for her, no matter what it takes. For Lola Stone and her daddy, that love is escalated to an insane level on the creepy scale and her unnatural relationship with him sets the bar for the way that she handles everything else in her life. Lola is the epitome of a princess and the spoiled brat gets whatever and whoever she wants, all thanks to the man who taught and let her act that way. Their relationship meets its breaking point when the father-daughter duo team up to torture a young man and force him to be her date to their mock prom. Despite Lola’s unstable mind and sadistic ways, it’s hard not to be attracted and seduced by her colorful presence and attitude. Along with Lola, her father’s dedication to his little girl makes his actions almost understandable for viewers and hard not to sympathize with…even if he does want to have sex with his daughter.
House of 1000 Corpses/The Devil’s Rejects
There’s always that one family in the neighborhood who have a reputation for being dirty, tough, and nothing but trouble. The Firefly family is all of those things and beyond, making them the kind of people you would never want to cross paths with. In House of 1000 Corpses we saw how unrelenting they were toward their victims and we saw them as typical psychos without rhyme or reason. However, in The Devil’s Rejects we saw the side of them that put all of their actions into perspective…sort of. The family may have been killing people just for the hell of it but they did deeply love and care for each other and they would die for one another. Their passion for family and their loyalties to each other is what sucked viewers in and made the family of killers the ones to root for. Not to mention, they sprouted some pretty great one-liners, filled with the foul language that made them feel like the type of people you could sit around and chug brewski’s with. If you did ever have a beer with one of them you should probably watch your back and/or carry a weapon for protection though.
Just because your family does a little inbreeding, it doesn’t automatically make you an awful person. The fact that those inbred individuals fell into the stereotype of backwoods hicks and murdered people for food, well, that makes them awful people. In Wrong Turn, a group of 20-somethings find themselves in a bit of trouble after crashing on a back road and coming face-to-face with a family of psychos in West Virginia. People lost their lives, limbs, and ears, as well as a gorgeous vintage Mustang. The aspect that stood out among the drama were the inbred murderers who had their own personalities, interesting choice of weaponry, and one annoying damn laugh. The family of disfigured men was to be feared, but you almost couldn’t blame them for wanting to chop of Emmanuelle Chriqui’s head.
