11. Housebound

Release Year: 2014

Director: Gerard Johnstone

Starring: Morgana O’Reilly, Rima Te Wiata, Glen-Paul Waru

A young woman named Kylie is arrested by police for stealing and sentenced to house arrest under the care of her mom and step-father. Not only does Kylie want nothing to do with either of her overseers, the house just might be haunted too.

Housebound is a rare film that works as both a comedy and a horror movie. Some scenes were gross enough to make my stomach turn while some moments had me laughing out loud.

New Zealander Gerard Johnstone made his directorial debut with this film but you wouldn’t know from the look of this polished and well-rounded work of art. The movie was well reviewed globally.
