I really enjoyed Hounds of Love when I saw it at SXSW this year, but it’s not an easy film. Not that it’s exploitive or graphic, but the situation it presents is bad enough that you don’t need to see anything to find yourself squirming in your seat.
It turns out that atmosphere is so pervasive, it remains intact even when the film is presented in trailer form:
That is a very accurate trailer, which should tell you everything you need to know about Hounds of Love and if it’s the right movie for you or not. It is extremely good at what it does, but what it does might get under your skin in a way you won’t appreciate.
For those who want to dive in, Hounds of Love comes out in select theaters and VOD May 12.
