    Horns

    ★★★½

    Horns is a difficult film to review. The book by Joe Hill is phenomenal. It beautifully blends fantasy and horror. It's romantic, dark, and funny. It's a coming-of-age tale interwoven with revenge horror. Adapting such a novel to the screen would seem impossible.

    Hounds of Love

    ★★★★

    Very disturbing and difficult to watch. Sort of a study in domestic violence and abusive, controlling relationships. It's filmed beautifully, the acting is great and it's well-paced. In fact, it feels almost too real at times and makes you feel dirty for watching it.

    This isn't the kind of film you watch to enjoy and I doubt it's one I'll ever rewatch, but I'm sure Hounds of Love will stick with me for some time.

    Grade: A-
    Verdict: Rent it
