On tap for ya this morning we have the U.S. trailer for Gerard Johnstone's upcoming horror comedy HOUSEBOUND, which is set to play as part of the lineups for this years Fantasia Film Festival and Film4 Frightfest. This trailer follows the poster reveal we brought you back in March, which we followed up a little later with the first hilarious clip. We later learned in May that Xlrator had picked up the SXSW hit with plans to release it in theaters, on VOD, and on iTunes on October 17, just in time for Halloween!
HOUSEBOUND is directed by Gerard Johnstone and stars Morgana O’Reilly, Rima Te Wiata, Glen-Paul Waru, Cameron Rhodes, Millen Baird, Ross Harper, Bruce Hopkins, Ryan Lampp, Ian Mune and Wallace Chapman.
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.
Check out the new trailer below and look for it on October 17.
