Housebound ★★★★

I'm seeing some Peter Jackson influences in this horror comedy from New Zealand, about a young woman that's forced to return to her childhood home to carry out her house arrest sentence. Which doesn't sound like a bad deal, except now she has to deal with her eccentric mother... oh and her house may be haunted. That's a great premise, and it's executed to near-perfection by writer/director Gerard Johnstone in his feature debut. It's scary, funny, and filled with great moments.
