Growing pains really smart in Oz horror-hound Sean Byrne’s twisted fairy-tale.
Like some sado-Cinderella, high-school wallflower Lola (Robin McLeavy) reacts badly when Xavier Samuels’ troubled hunk spurns her: she has Daddy (John Brumpton) kidnap him for a home date.
Mirrorball, music, torture – la-la Lola lays it on. The pacing is choppy but Byrne serves a thick, satisfying stew of savagery and surprise sympathy, generously flavoured by lashings of black humour.
“The trick is not to go too far,” Daddy advises, handing Lola a drill.
