Gerard Johnstone‘s Housebound (2014) made killer waves at SXSW and it is clear to see why. This movie trailer looks fantastic and screams “must-see movie.” Sir Peter Jackson (yes, the director of The Lord of the Rings films and The Hobbit films) says the thriller movie is “Bloody Brilliant!” IMDB has this movie categorized as a comedy thriller but look at the trailer and see it for what it is, a great movie trailer. Expect to see Housebound in Fantasia Film Festival 2014. Cast in Housebound are Rima Te Wiata, Morgana O’Reilly, Glen-Paul Waru and Cameron Rhodes.
Synopsis: 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.
