After multiple attempts at reform have failed, Kylie is sentenced to home detention in her childhood house, now inhabited by her mom and stepfather. Her pleasant, slightly dotty mom believes the house is haunted. Kylie is irritated and skeptical, until unexplained events begin to pique her curiosity.
Mr. AC found this delightful horror-comedy gem from New Zealand. It delivers genuine scares along with consistent wry humor. The protagonist is initially unlikable, but earns our sympathy as the mysteries of the house begin to unfold. Thoroughly satisfying.
