Housebound ★★★★

Cropsy’s 50 Year Horror Challenge 2017!

Week 3 • 2014 • Gerard Johnstone's Housebound.

A troublemaker is sent back to her family home and is sentenced to house arrest. Soon after arriving, strange things start happening in the house. Her goofy mother has been convinced the house is haunted. Not convinced, Kylie sets out trying to solve the mystery while also trying to keep her sanity intact.

This flick was a hoot. It's genuinely funny, and the characters are all fantastic. The mystery is well crafted and keeps you on the edge of your seat, even during the slowest parts. Slowly and slowly, the story unravels and shit hits the fucking fan eventually. The twist was a little predictable, but it didn't bother me too much. The ending was a major highlight. I'd love to see the director tackle another film, because this is one hell of a debut.
