Hounds of Love

Hounds of Love ★★★½

A very impressive and brutal feature film debut from Ben Young! Heavily inspired by David and Catherine Birnie, this film will leave you in desperate need of a shower. It's a dirty, nasty experience that I can't really say I enjoyed, and would never want to watch again.

Though it's undoubtedly impressive from the filmmaking standpoint, I was left with a question: why this? What was the point of showing this? It's not the fun kind of horror/thriller, it's not really a film that has layers beyond the storyline and characters, and it doesn't seem to have anything to say beyond its brutality.

If someone tells you they actually loved and enjoyed this movie—RUN.
