"Homegrown Brilliance"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Amongst the flood of local films this year – the worthy but unsatisfying “Dark Horse” and the overblown pointlessness of “The Deadlands” this true gem of a kiwi film went overlooked. It's a funny, twisted, smart and enjoyable film. Needless to say the director is going on to fame and fortune as he should but for now you should check out this gem of a film ideal for a night in. A night Housebound.

"Very funny"

This is a good watch. Typical NZ humour which we all relate to. Not all scary, it's just fun to watch. An interesting reminder of fears that many of us had as a child, will make you want to check your walls cupboards and basements.

"A good twist"

Purchased on Mighty Ape

I really enjoyed this movie, there's a mix of ghosts, surprises and a really good twist at the end.


Kylie Bucknell (Morgana O'Reilly) is forced to return to the house she grew up in when the court places her on home detention. Her punishment is made all the more unbearable by the fact she has to live there with her mother Miriam (Rima Te Wiata) – a well-intentioned blabbermouth who's convinced Kylie dismisses Miriam's super­stitions as nothing more than a distraction from a life occupied by boiled vegetables & small-town gossip. However, when she too becomes privy to unsettling whispers & strange bumps in the night, she begins to wonder whether she's inherited her overactive imagination, or if the house is in fact possessed by a hostile spirit who's less that the house is haunted. than happy about the new living arrangement.
