The mishmash that results is by turns creepy, silly, inventive, darkly funny and, at one point, mind-blowingly bloody.

Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, 2014-10-16

 

If Housebound is ultimately much more funny than scary, it's because O'Reilly's pugnacious performance runs so counter to the genre's usual treatment of women in peril.

Mike D'Angelo, AV Club, 2014-10-16

 

Hard to categorize -- horror-comedy? mystery-thriller? -- but lots of fun to watch.

Chuck Wilson, Village Voice, 2014-10-14

 

A welcome return to quirky Kiwi horror comedy with a juicy payoff.

David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter, 2014-10-13

 

A marvelously entertaining combo of haunted-house thriller, murder mystery and domestic comedy, Housebound marks a mighty impressive feature bow for Kiwi scripter-helmer-editor Gerard Johnstone.

Richard Kuipers, Variety, 2014-10-13
