Australian cinema has a strong track record with true-crime dramas, but perhaps none has delved so deep into the dark, depraved side of human nature like HOUNDS OF LOVE. A remarkably bold yet controlled achievement for first-time feature writer/director Ben Young, it casts such a disturbing spell that it definitively crosses genre borders to become a horror film as well.
The powerfully disturbing Australian crime/horror thriller HOUNDS OF LOVE will likely be a breakout film for its first-time writer/director Ben Young and also for its stars, Emma Booth, Ashleigh Cummings and Stephen Curry. The trio recall both the dark and lighter sides of filming HOUNDS below, continuing the conversation that began here.
In HOUNDS OF LOVE, opening this Friday, Emma Booth, Ashleigh Cummings and Stephen Curry go to some of the most horrifically emotional places of any actors this year. Yet they’re all smiles and laugh easily when they get together to discuss the movie with RUE MORGUE at last month’s Tribeca Film Festival.
