“Brave audiences will be rewarded with a harrowing ride that morphs from discrete horror to probing character study and back again … For such a bold film to work, the performances must be all-in, and the three leads are committed to Young’s vision … “Hounds of Love” is a calling card not soon forgotten.” – Eddie Cockrell, VARIETY
“Snowtown meets Natural Born Killers … with a fetid psychological energy that clings like an unshakeable dream.” – Luke Buckmaster, The Guardian
“The rarest of beasts: a directorial debut that’s not only tonally flawless but also manages to radically re-imagine an entire genre.” — Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
