One of our favorite films from last year’s Venice Film Festival is making its way to the United States. Hounds of Love, a harrowing debut from Australian director Ben Young, will get its North American premiere at South by Southwest Film Festival before arriving in theaters in May courtesy of Gunpowder & Sky Distribution. Featuring a couple who abducts a young women, the first teaser has now arrived.

We said in our review “director Ben Young’s feature debut is the kind of film you wish you could un-see – except not really. Sure, its extended depictions of physical and psychological abuse will upset/offend many. At the same time, there’s no denying the level of craft and performance involved that probes human depravity so compellingly, you’re left with much more than just rattled nerves and a taste of bile.”

Check out the teaser below for the film starring Ashleigh Cummings, Emma Booth, Stephen Curry, Susie Porter, Damian de Montemas, Harrison Gilbertson, and Fletcher Humphrys.

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.
