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).

Hounds Of Love Film Review
14 August 2017 | by (Aberdeen, Scotland) – See all my reviews

The new drama film Hounds Of Love starring Emma Booth, Ashleigh Cummings, Stephen Curry, Susie Porter, Damian de Montemas.

Sharing its name with a Kate Bush song and set two years after its 1985 release, Hounds of Love is a chilling kidnap thriller set in Perth, Western Australia in December 1987.

Teenager Vicki Maloney (Ashleigh Cummings - Australian TV Series Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, Tomorrow, When The War Began) - at odds with her mother Maggie (Susie Porter - Star Wars: Episode II - Attack Of The Clones, Little Fish) for separating from her father Trevor (Damian de Montemas - Australian TV Series Underbelly and Wolf Creek) - is deceived and abducted by a cold, sadistic couple Evelyn White and John White (Australian actress Emma Booth - Parker, Tracks, Australian actor Stephen Curry - Australian TV Series Neighbours, The Cup) and imprisoned in their suburban home. With morbidly riveting central performances, this debut feature film from Ben Young weaves themes of power, control and motherhood into its tension-filled central premise.

Amongst the other actors / actresses in Hounds Of Love includes Harrison Gilbertson (Need For Speed, Haunt) as Jason Vicki's boyfriend, Australian actor Fletcher Humphrys (Chopper, Australian TV Series Home And Away) as Gary, Steve Turner as Troy, Holly Jones (Looking For Grace) as Miss Martin, Michael Muntz (Australian TV Series A Country Practice) as Sergeant Mathews, Marko Jovanovic (Son Of A Gun) as Sergeant Henderson, Scottish actor Liam Graham (Sororal) as Pete and Lisa Bennet as Gabby Donovan.

Overall Hounds Of Love is a good drama film filled with drama, hard hitting scenes, kidnap, torture, gory violence, abuse, family, friendship, falling outs, arguments, some upsetting scenes and other things throughout the film.

So I will give Hounds Of Love an overall rating of 3 out of 5 stars and Hounds Of Love is worth seeing if you like drama films like Room, Oldboy or kidnap drama films along the same lines as this.

So if you get the chance to see Hounds Of Love in the cinema then you should go and see it sooner than later.
