Housebound ★★★★

An inventive horror film that delivers genuine scares, unexpected tenderness and a very Kiwi sense of humour. These would be difficult to juggle together but I thought it was expertly balanced.

I haven't seen a decent horror/comedy since What We Do In The Shadows, also hailing from New Zealand. It makes me more excited about Deathgasm - another Kiwi horrcom showing at the Sydney Film Festival this year.
