Movie Monday: Housebound

Sometimes I get bored with standard viewing fare and watch movie previews on Flixster. That’s how I discovered Housebound, an indie horror movie that looks promising.

It looks scary, yet also appears to be laced with humor. (À la Shaun of the Dead. Except with ghosts instead of zombies.)

It’s set to have a limited opening on October 17th. I hope we get it in a theater near us here in Nashville. So far they only have locations listed for Australia on the Movie Times section of their Facebook page.

Here’s the 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 less than happy about the new living arrangement.

Here’s the trailer:

What do you think? Does it pique your interest too?
