Ticket giveway – Housebound

Like horror movies with a sense of humour? Ghost stories? Women-in-peril flicks (especially when said woman is tough-as-nails)? New Zealand accents?

If so, you’ll love Housebound. The 2013 movie, writer/director Gerard Johnstone‘s feature film debut, is showing with this year’s Vancouver International Film Festival. It’s won rave reviewers for the performances of its leads, including Morgana O’Reilly as Kylie, a small-time criminal sentenced to house arrest. Tension mounts as things start to go bump in the night, lights go on and off at random, Kylie’s mom (Rima Te Wiata) seems increasingly unhinged and even the next-door neighbour starts looking like he might have a few skeletons in his tool-shed. But the film also has a healthy sense of humour. So when things look darkest, there’s usually a laugh lurking around the corner, too.

We don’t want to say any more – half the fun is knowing as little about Housebound as possible. So why don’t we just get this ticket contesting underway?

There are two ways you can enter to win.

1. Leave a comment below naming a Crowded House song (they’re from New Zealand!).
2. Follow @TheSnipeNews on Twitter and tweet the following:

    I already have a ticket for Housebound and I’m really looking forward to it, but after reading this I was surprised how many Crowded House songs could be the titles to horror movies: Kill Eye, Sister Madly, I Feel Possessed, Love You ‘Til The Day I Die, Tombstone, Locked Out, and Pineapple Head or Woodface could be spinoffs of Pumpkinhead.

    I’d see a movie called Pineapple Head!
