XLrator Media Brings Home SXSW Hit Housebound For U.S. Distribution

Posted by Karen Benardello On May - 7 - 2014 0 Comment

The U.S. distribution rights to the new horror-comedy, ‘Housebound,’ have been acquired by XLrator Media. The film, which had its U.S. premiere at South by Southwest (SXSW) in March, will be released this fall on the multi-platform releasing company’s Macabre genre label.

The deal was announced by XLrator Media’s CEO, Barry Gordon. “With its deft mix of suspense, comedy and genuine thrills, ‘Housebound’ marks an impressively assured directorial debut by Gerard Johnstone who promises to have a brilliant career in front of him,” Gordon said.

‘Housebound’ stars Morgana O’Reilly, Rima Te Wiata and Glen-Paul Waru. The tHriller was written and directed by Johnstone in his feature film debut.

XLrator Media has released the following synopsis for ‘Housebound’:

Kylie Bucknell (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 (Te Wiata)–a well-intentioned blabbermouth who’s convinced that the house is haunted. 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 and 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 not particularly thrilled about her return.
