Storyline

In 1987 Perth, Austraila, John and Evelyn White. are a pair of serial killers who target teenage girls. One night, Vicki Maloney, who impetuously sneaks out of the house for a forbidden party, is lured by the pair into their clutches. Now paying dearly for her naivety, Vicki must endure a horrific nightmare of confinement and torture at the hands of this depraved pair. Against these murderers, Vicki's only chance of survival is a mix of subterfuge, cunning, and mind games while her estranged parents and her boyfriend desperately try to learn what has happened and what can be done to find her. Meanwhile, the Whites have growing problems of their own, which could provide the only hope Vicki could have to survive. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Goofs

The antagonist vehicle was a VH Commodore Vacationer issued in 1983. The number plate or registration number of the vehicles issued between 1978 and 1997 were numbered 6AA-000 with black text on a reflective yellow background. The 1AAA-000 number plate series was introduced in 1997 and was styled blue text on a white reflective background. Prior to 1978, number plates in WA were numbered either UAA-000 or XAA-000 and were styled black text on white background. The 1983 vehicle depicted in the picture depicted a 1AAA-000 style number plate (1997 onwards) with black text on white background (pre-1978). It technically should have been a 6AA-000 plate with black text on yellow. Considering the amount of detail the director went into to recreate the era, this anachronism seems odd (even deliberate).

Couple of monsters.
9 May 2017 | by (ottawa, CANADA) – See all my reviews

Great movie about horrific stuff. There ya go. Evelyn and John cruise Perth school yards, fishing for teenage girls with friendly Aussie banter and car ride offers. The pleasantries end right there.

As the secret predator couple in the neighbourhood, Emma Booth and Stephen Curry are spectacular in their complicated performances. Charming and congenial, slick and methodical, brutal and sadistic, vulnerable and suspicious; all bases are covered. "Hounds of Love" is about serial sexual homicide, and it is as brutal as that sounds. Not in an exploitative manner (most of the cruelty is off screen), but in its believable depiction of perversion, and the matter of fact execution by the monsters.

Sporting a cheesy mustache, Curry presents a tiny, unassuming wimp - he is humiliated and berated about money owing. Yet deep inside he is a tight wound ball of explosion, and the creepy manipulator of all crimes. Evelyn is a more than wiling accomplice, but she has a wounded past, shows some semblance of sympathy, and is thus the weak link in the monster couple. How all this plays out in the most recent triangle is expertly framed by newbie filmmaker Ben Young.

"Hounds of Love" is a difficult watch, but it's also difficult to ignore.
