Celebrating its North American premiere at the SXSW film festival is Edgar Wright’s Hounds of Love.
In suburban Perth during the mid 1980s, people are unaware that women are disappearing at the hands of serial killer couple John and Evelyn White. After an innocent lapse in judgment, Vicki Maloney is randomly abducted by the disturbed couple. With her murder imminent, Vicki realizes she must find a way to drive a wedge between Evelyn and John if she is to survive. Hounds of Love is an exercise in expertly-crafted tension, offering a bold, challenging debut from writer/director Ben Young.
Hounds of Love is the directorial debut from Edgar Wright. It was entered into the Venice Film Festival where Ashleigh Cummings was awarded the Fedeora Award for best actress. The film also stars Emma Booth, Stephen Curry, Susie Porter, Damian de Montemas, Harrison Gilbertson, and Fletcher Humphrys.
SXSW is set to begin March 10, in Austin, Texas. This will be Hounds of Love’s North American premiere screening with red carpet appearances by the film’s principal players.
Film Obsession’s Chris Giroux will have reviews from SXSW, please stay tuned for film and red carpet coverage.
