After being caught in a particularly incompetent cash-station robbery, 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. Miriam may be a ninny, but she's absolutely right.

This fantasy/thriller film is probably one of the better ones that I have seen in recent years. An almost thief is given back to the custody of her estranged mother who is dead-set in her belief that their family is haunted by an evil being. The acting in this movie was actually incredible and the director did a great job at building suspense and tension through imagery and sound effects. I even felt scared at times, which is an important thing to feel while watching a thriller or horror film. I would rate this movie 4/5 stars and recommend it to those who want to watch a horror movie that will actually leave them feeling uncomfortable and scared. @The_Reviewer of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

Unfortunately, I did not see the humour in this film at all. It had a good build-up, keeping my interest until just after the half-way mark in duration. At this point, to the conclusion, it lost its appeal.

Brilliant, dark, creepy, and funny as Kiwi horror.

A series of misunderstandings, coincidence, and simply the absurd make this an enjoyable parody of haunted house films.

I loved this movie. Reminded me of Drag Me To Hell. It's funny in an outrageous way with impossible twists and turns and just the right amount of gore - when you least expect it. A must see.

Unique...both scary and funny. Dark comedy.

I loved this movie. It was a little creepy, really funny and sorta strange. If you like creepy/funny, then you should see it.

Excellent performances combined with a spooky script and a dash of humor. I especially liked the feisty young lady. A surprising find.

Well done horror thriller with some laughs. Not your usual haunted house flick. Well done.

A surprisingly entertaining film. Kind of slow at first, but gets better about half way through. I enjoyed this movie.
