2015 October Horror Challenge #81 "Housebound"
Aaaahhh, crazy families. Gotta love 'em. In this movie, a woman who is in and out of trouble with the law is ordered to return home to the care of her estranged mother. She and her mother don't get along, and she insists her mother is suffering from dementia, while her mother insists the house is hsunted. At first she dismisses her mother's concerns, but after several creepy experiences, she's not so sure. What is haunting the house, and will they be able to stop it in time?
The movie is a horror comedy, and it's often aiming more for "funny" than "scary." At least that's what I thought at first, but I was in a crabby mood from the last movie I watched. Once this movie gets going, it's pretty good. It's a little comedy, a little horror, and a little mystery all rolled into one. I dig it.
