My first movie watch of 2015, I was not disappointed with this, I was just satisfied. I think a lot more could have come out of this, the unknown cast were good, the dialogue was good, the comedy was good and the horror was also very good. But there is something so much more that could have been done with this.

I've heard many good things about this. So I figured I would go ahead and check it out while it's on Netflix. This is the only credit for writer/director Gerard Johnstone. Also I don't recognize any of the actors here. I hope this is as good as I've heard. Okay that seems like a little bit of humor. New Zealand has some interesting humor style. That was interesting.

Description: 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 ...

I wonder if it was foreshadowing or not. I swear she acts just like a ungrateful teenage brat. Well that's an interesting development. I think this Morgana O'Reilly is quite an intriguing actress. That is an interesting development. Hmm it definitely doesn't feel like a typical ghost story. Oh no that's messed up! It's kind of feeling like a whodunnit kind of movie. There are definitely some truly creepy aspects here that I fin” read more

Moviewatcher122's 2016 Film Diary: February (31 movies items)

"February 29 "You know, the closed mind is the worst defense against the paranormal, Kylie. What are you gonna do against a hostile spirit? You just gonna crack jokes?" "No, I am going to smash it in the face. "You cannot punch ectoplasm." Out of all the recent horror movies to come out in the past few years, this movie is one of those gems. It is a good blend of horror and comedy although I think this movie excels more in horror as it is genuinely scary at times. The movie also does have it'"

Best movies of 2014 (39 movies items)

" This little New Zealand horror flick does a stellar job at playing around with genre conventions, with a solid cast & some actual surprises along the way. It's best to go into this one knowing as little as possible, that way it's sure to have its full effect on you."
