Housebound

Housebound ★★★

Quirky and pretty fun, but it's also pretty unmemorable. It's one of those comedies that sort of markets itself as a horror, but the creeps feel phoned in. It's like they go through the motions of how a horror film should look and sound, but their hearts are never really in it.

That approach can still work, but it works better in flicks like "Tucker & Dale vs. Evil" and "Dead Snow," where the comedy is funnier and the action is way more over the top.
