The scares of tense family relationships and supernatural supersitions are set to be released when the horror comedy, ‘Housebound,’ will hit theaters, VOD and iTunes on October 17. XLrator Media will distribute the movie, which was written and directed by Gerard Johnstone and stars Morgana O’Reilly, Rima Te Wiata and Glen-Paul Waru.
The following synopsis for ‘Housebound’ has been released by XLrator Media:
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 and 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 not particularly thrilled about her return.
