Hounds of Love (R18)

It is Christmastime 1987 in sun-baked Perth suburbia where nothing much seems to happen other than the outwardly normal Evelyn and John White (Emma Booth, Stephen Curry) cruising their neighbourhood in search of a new victim to capture, torture and murder before enjoying a mid-afternoon nap. What will happen when they pick up runaway teenager Vicki (Ashleigh Cummings) and she finds herself caught up in their perverse ritual? This film is painfully realistic with a vivid visual style and a multi-layered script based on real-life serial-killing sprees in Perth. One of the best films of the year, it will reward brave audiences who are prepared to be taken on a harrowing ride that transforms from horror to a probing psychological character study and back again with an admirably restrained style and searing performances.
