In suburban Perth during the mid 1980s, people are unaware that women are disappearing at the hands of serial killer couple John and Evelyn White. After an innocent lapse in judgment, Vicki Maloney is randomly abducted by the disturbed couple. With her murder imminent, Vicki realizes she must find a way to drive a wedge between Evelyn and John if she is to survive. Hounds of Love is an exercise in expertly-crafted tension, offering a bold, challenging debut from writer/director Ben Young.
There’s a chilling reality to the premise of Hounds of Love that I really hope is executed properly in the film itself. With the right performances, cinematography, and sound design this could be an incredibly gripping movie that leaves a mark on its audiences. If this trailer is any indication, that should be exactly the case.
Hounds of Love will be in theaters and on VOD May 12th, 2017.
