Hounds of Love disappoints as well as disgusts by leaning too far into 'torture porn', all the while leaving far too little to the imagination.August 25, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Expertly made, and a must for horror film aficionados, Hounds of Love is a chance for everyone else to enjoy an utterly punishing night at the cinema, with acute stomach tension and mild stress-induced nausea.
Psychologically impressive and fiendishly involving.
Bleak, tight and unusual. A strong start for Ben Young.
Audience Reviews for Hounds of Love
Oct 03, 2018So if the question of why you're even watching this shit doesn't beg itself long before the half-way mark then you're probably a dickhead. I'm keen to watch more of Ben's work though. He fucked up here but showcased a lot of skill too. Great "Australian" story though........yeah, right.
Apr 28, 2018Very creepy and well made. I liked that it wasnt overly graphic and left the nasty stuff to the imagination. The setting in 70s Perth was very familiar to me. Horrible story of course, but well handled.Nicki M Super Reviewer
May 09, 2017I tracked this down after finding some reviews on RT weekly consensus. The film has a strong cast and the filmmaking is quite brilliant, the tone is setup from the opening slow motion shot. Curry makes for an unpredictable predator and owns the film from his introduction, you never know where his character will go next. The plot is very original but the final third is the weaker point, I just felt filmmakers missed an opportunity to push the boundaries and resist a bitter sweet ending. It felt too safe and robbed the audience of something true and unpredictable. Look away now if you don't spoilers. The girl makes a hidden code but gets the house incorrect. I would the girl murdered earlier and the wife sitting at the table pondering what happened. The family would come yelling for Vikki, which would resonant with the wife. She would stab the husband in this moment, not bitter sweet or safe. Just my opinion. 26-12-2017.Brendan N Super Reviewer
