APRIL 24th, 2017

"Fueled by a powerhouse performance by Emma Booth, Hounds of Love shines the darkest corners of the human heart to examine the monstrous things we’re capable of doing to ourselves and to others in the name of love. Its a deep, dark, disturbing, masterpiece of a film. 5 out of 5"
Ashleigh Cummings Interview

"(Young) didn’t subscribe to any genres as such, and that’s what I think makes it so original and unique ... I think he did a pretty magical job with it. I saw it for the first time yesterday and I knew he was a genius but I didn’t understand what kind of genius he was until yesterday."
Venice Film Festival Review
SEPTEMBER 1st, 2016
"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."
