There is an undeniable charm to this original and sympathetic little domestic horror comedy. Its authenticity is not only fuelled by excellent acting, but also by an odd, very specific visual style that's both old-fashioned and fresh.
Although the plot is varying from muddled to steady and the mood switches from comedic to tense and from gross to subtle in no time, nothing ever truly feels out of place, as it's all combined to a unique and mostly satisfying whole. Especially the humour is great. The dialogue is occasionally brilliant, and at any give time entertaining.
Maybe not as bonkers as it could have been, Housebound is still enhanced by a few wonky sequences that work out to great effect, making it a wholly enjoyable and engaging ride, especially in combination with the vivid character dynamics and the awesome score.
