Ooooo... a ghost story in time for Halloween from Xlrator Media. Now this looks promising. At least the poster and trailer have me interested. Gerard Johnstone may not have a huge resume under his belt just yet, but he seems to have put together a rather complex movie. It looks fairly straightforward until you actually get to the "house" in Housebound. Then the thing seems to go a little Aussie. A little comedy. A lot of crazy. I like the cast and the look so far and find little to compare it to.
Full release from Xlrator who can be a mixed bag producer, but when they hit, the sledgehammer.

SYNOPSIS: Kylie Bucknell 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 – 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 & 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.
