Peter Jackson describes it as "Bloody brilliant", new Kiwi horrorcomedy set for September 2014 release
Not many details to hand but "Housebound" is set for a September 4th cinema release in New Zealand, figures crossed we get it across the ditch here as well.
Director Gerard Johnstone who previously brought us, uhmm nothing of horror note, hits out with his first full length horror flick Housebound starring Morgana O'Reilly and Rima Te Wiata. For those wondering, yes a horror/comedy hybrid.
"Kylie Bucknell is forced to return to the house she grew up in when the court places her on home detention. Her punishment is made all the more unbearable by the fact she has to live there with her mother Miriam - a well-intentioned blabbermouth who's convinced that the house is haunted. Kylie dismisses Miriam's superstitions as nothing more than a distraction from a life occupied by boiled vegetables & small-town gossip. However, when she too becomes privy to unsettling whispers & strange bumps in the night, she begins to wonder whether she's inherited her overactive imagination, or if the house is in fact possessed by a hostile spirit who's less than happy about the new living arrangement." - Luke Gerantson - imdb.com
