Housebound Release Details
XLrator Media is handling US distribution of the horror-comedy HOUSEBOUND, which premiered at South by Southwest (SXSW) in March. XLrator Media will release the film October 17, 2014, on its acclaimed â€œMACABREâ€ genre label in theatres and on VOD and iTunes.
HOUSEBOUND is Gerard Johnstone’s feature film debut. It was produced by Luke Sharpe for Semi-Professional Pictures; executive produced by Ant Timpson, Daniel Story, and Chris Lambert; and funded by the New Zealand Film Commission.
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 â€“ a well-intentioned blabbermouth whoâ€™s convinced that the house is haunted. Kylie dismisses Miriamâ€™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 and strange bumps in the night, she begins to wonder whether sheâ€™s inherited her mother’s overactive imagination or if the house is in fact possessed by a hostile spirit whoâ€™s not particularly thrilled about her return.
