HOUNDS OF LOVE (2017)
A film by Ben Young
Cast : Emma Booth, Ashleigh Cummings, Stephen Curry
Vicki Maloney is randomly abducted from a suburban street by a disturbed couple.As she observes the dynamic between her captors she quickly realises that she has one thing going in order to survive is to have them against each other.
The opening of the films is awesome but creepy. Young girls playing volley ball and basket ball in slow motion plus the close up of the body parts. It sets up what kind off film it is going to be. A girl is along as she goes home. Soon enough Evelyn and John pull up in their station wagon and ask if she wants a lift. She is never to be seen again. One of the scenes after that is a woman cleaning up the room picking up dildos with blood on it and some bloody tissue, seriously a terrifying scene here. Yes you are dealing of a serial killer from event that happened in Australia in 1987 of a couple who killed a bunch of teenagers. However in the film it takes place in 1987.
Jason (Harrison Gilberston) looks like a young Heath Ledger and his girlfriend, Vicki Maloney (Ashleigh Cummings), are busy fooling around like the teenagers they are playing games and making out. You know that is going to happen but later on. It is the same thing always the parents are divorced. And Vicky is at her mother 2 times a week. But they argued and Vicky sneak out of the house. I have seen that on before. Although he gets pretty terrifying when she gets abducted. She start to think and try to get the couple against each other. Is it going to work?
you will see how messed up this couple is. However Young knew how to build up the tension here with some cool music. But the film is lacking something it is like I have seen this before but differently. It is watchable however. The actors are outstanding in their craft. You can feel the heat off the screen. Remember on thing never talk to stranger not get in their car.
