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.

Placed in home detention, Kylie Bucknel is convinced her mother's home is haunted.

Cast: Morgana O'Reilly, Rima Te Wiata, Glem-Paul Waru

Very cool. I don't usually think comedy and horror go together, but this one pulled it off beautifully. I think the classic driving horror movie music that makes you take the movie seriously while funny things are happening, possibly has something to do with it. The clothes hamper scene managed to be suspenseful AND hilarious at the same time.
