My boyfriend and I saw Hounds of Love yesterday and I am still looking for my socks after they exploded of my feet💥
I initially bought this film because of the cover. All I saw was a girl chained to a bed, so I though that this would fit right at home with my pervy brain.
However the movie I got couldn’t be father away from my expectations.
Instead of being just another rape/revenge film, this was a psychological horror film that focused more on the offenders rather then on the victim, which was so refreshing!
This film is quite gruesome but again not in the traditional way where the viewer is shown a bunch of disturbing imagery of the victim being assaulted. Instead it builds up tension and some gruesome atmosphere, which is far more efficient then to show graphic scenes of rape and violence.
I also really appreciated the relationship of the offending couple. First we have John, a manipulative psychopath, with no redeeming qualities what so ever. He is a monster and has no issues with being exactly that.
Secondly we have Evelyn, who is as much a victim as the girls they violate and murder. Being one of Johns former victims herself and institutionalised (not in the traditional sense) her clouded mental state convinces her that she needs John to survive and therefore follows his lead no matter how horrific.
No spoilers but I have to mention a scene near the end where Evelyn has a knife to their victims throat. There is no dialogue on their part, they just stare at each other, acting if both their life’s depended on it. This is a crucial point for Evelyns character and made my heart bounce inside my throat. And I’ll just leave it at that, wanna know more then go see it😉
