Housebound (2014) Review:

It is not often that we come across some New Zealand horror, but this one makes it count. Housebound is a great surprise, a very ambitious movie and yet one that never takes itself seriously. The scenario is extremely rich and filled with clever story twists, fantastic characters and lots of cool ideas. Every time you think that you know what is going to happen, the movie takes an unexpected turn and brings the suspense back.

The tone of the movie is very light and, mostly because of the comical aspect of its characters, makes the overall experience very comical. Yet, Housebound never falls into the full-on comedy genre (no jokes or exaggerated stupidity). Instead, it remains a very subtle movie that just plays with the simplicity of its characters and simple scary bits.

Another thing that makes Housebound really unique is the quality of its characters: the mum, the step-dad, the officer, the neighbor and much more, they all are very colorful personalities, full of surprises and all important to the story.

One of the greatest surprise of 2014!
