"Housebound" is a 2014 Thriller/Ghost/Horror Comedy from New Zealand. After watching it, I was surprised how many praise this movie gets. It even won the audience award at Fantasyfilmfest against "the Babadook".

But I'm really perplexed...why? It wasn't awful but it wasn't good either.

First it wants to be a ghost story, later some sort of redneck/mental institute horror story. It's more stitched together than Frankensteins Monster.

Housebound is funny, yes, but this fact doesn't win me over. I missed some key elements to be really entertaining. And it doesn't matter anyway....Spock died today.
