Housebound

IMDB link: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3504048/

Starring: A bunch of New Zealanders

Review: I was pleasantly surprised a few minutes into this movie to discover it was a horror comedy. By the end of the movie I was very pleased to have given it a chance. THIS is why I do what I do. This movie is a little slow at times, but stick with it. The funny is there. I’m actually keeping this review short because I don’t want to ruin it for you.

In short, a woman with anger management issues is sentenced to 8 months of house arrest. In the house she grew up in. And her excessively chatty mother and step father who barely speaks. Strange things start happening. Hilarity and violence ensue.

Where I found it: I originally found it on my Roku’s Pay-per-view channel, M-Go. But then it appeared on Amazon Prime cheaper…

How much I paid for it: The first time I watched this I paid Amazon Prime 99 CENTS. The second time I watched it I only gave away 107 minutes of my life. (Yes, you read that right. I watched it TWICE!)

Points of interest: If you’re sick of damsels in distress, watch this movie.

The Money Shot: Have you seen Scanners?

Main Glutton for Punishment at I Watched It On Purpose
My name is Jenn and I have a bad movie problem.

I love bad movies. LOVE them. I have several definitions of bad, but it all comes down to “bad on purpose” and “bad by accident”.

I will watch it if:

it can be described as science fiction, fantasy, or horror (Sometimes I will watch action comedy but these are less likely.)
it is described as a mystery or thriller and a serial killer is mentioned in the description.
it has less than three stars on Netflix
the cast includes Ron Perlman, Rutger Hauer, Henry Rollins, Bill Mosely, Bruce Campbell, Clancy Brown or Malcolm McDowell
Lovecraft, Cthulu or Dragons are mentioned in the title, tag line or box art.
