Hounds of Love is a true-crime horror/thriller which seems cultivated for only the bravest of audiences, those of us masochists who find a reason to absorb uncomfortable cinema. The film has been lauded by critics on the festival circuit, but it exists for only the most courageous filmgoers.
Check out this trailer. If you make it through without your heart racing or your stomach churning, then either this is the movie for you or you should be under close observation by the authorities:
Vicki Maloney is randomly abducted from a suburban street by a disturbed couple. As she observes the dynamic between her captors she quickly realises she must drive a wedge between them if she is to survive.
So that’s pretty tough stuff, but it’s something I am interested in seeing. Because I’m probably a little sick but, hey, if it’s your jam it’s your jam.
Hounds of Love stars Emma Booth and Stephen Curry (not the Golden State Warriors MVP). It’s directed by Ben Young, whose only other credit is a film called Something Fishy that I feel like I should check out.
The bravest of us will check out Hounds of Love in theaters or VOD on May 12.
