Housebound ★★★★

Every year I look forward to Fangoria magazine's Chainsaw Awards nominees. Even with all the access to so many reviews, blogs, and online information for horror buffs, they still manage to squeeze in some titles I hadn't heard of. Housebound was one of these, earning nominations for Best Direct-to-Video/Limited Release, Supporting Actress, and Screenplay. All of those were deserved and this is one of the otherwise unsung bright spots for 2014 horror.

A New Zealand horror comedy with a central mystery that takes us in unexpected and often hilarious directions. Make no mistake, there are some dark and frightening scenes to balance out the humor. Exciting finale and good gore, too.
