An unforgettable mixture of bubblegum teen melodrama and grisly phantasmagoria, Nobuhiko Obayashi’s deranged fairy tale House (Hausu) is one of Japanese cinema’s wildest supernatural ventures and a truly startling debut feature.
Upset by her widowed father’s plans to remarry, Gorgeous sets off with six of her schoolgirl friends in tow for a summer getaway at her aunt’s isolated mansion. In this house of dormant secrets, long-held emotional traumas have terrifyingly physical embodiments and the girls must use their individual talents if any are to survive.
A rollercoaster without breaks, House is by turns hilarious, sinister, and unexpectedly lyrical with ceaseless cinematic invention and a satirical, full-blooded approach to to the horror genre.
