Housebound

Housebound ★★★★½

Someone asked me this morning how I liked this after watching it. To which I replied "It was fucking rad!"

Managing the ultimate highwire act of balancing suspense with genuine comedy, this film is almost a miracle for how pitch perfect it is, with even twists that are telegraphed minutes beforehand still eliciting chills and laughs at the same time during the actual reveal. It even changes genres at least three fucking times, and you don't even notice. And by the time the final antagonist is dispatched, it's a "slow clap" moment for sure. At times, the film even feels like the best of Edgar Wright's work, before that started sliding. Wonderfully lovable.
