Shocking Home Invasion Film from the Netherlands
(Deutsche) title GEFESSELT: LIEBE EHRE GEHORSAM [Bound: Love
also known as DEADLY VIRTUES
director: Ate de Jong
starring: Megan Maczko · Edward Akrout · Matt Barber
story features three main characters: a married couple, Tom and Alison,
plus an intruder named Aaron. When he breaks into their house, the couple
are having sex. He interrupts the action by asking 'do you mind if I
cut in?' Then he quickly over-powers the two. When they wake up, Tom
is tied up in the bathtub and Alison is hanging from the kitchen ceiling.
What follows is a weekend of torture and abuse. But this is no standard
'home invasion' film. The characters have depth, the writing is engaging
and the ending... well, the ending is VERY surprising.
Home invasion movies are a relatively new horror genre.
Most fans point to LADY
IN A CAGE (1964) as the first one (a case could also be made
for Johnny Cash's FIVE
MINUTES TO LIVE in 1961). But it wasn't actually established
as a 'genre' until Peter Collison's grim masterpiece THE
PENTHOUSE in '67. Of course, the home invasion narrative became
mainstream in the '70s with everything from Clockwork Orange
to Death Wish to Play Misty For Me. The
genre is still strong. And with this film, unique.
