Seriously, what the fuck?

"The girls will wake up... when they are hungry."

If Sam Raimi was perpetually tripping on acid throughout every stage of making a movie, it would look something like this Japanese cult classic. Hausu cannot simply be classified as a movie, but a bizarre, borderline indescribable experience. Actually, words like "bizarre" or "weird" do not even begin to describe this flick - it's ju... read more

Once upon a time, the gang from Scooby Doo met Mario Bava and Salvadore Dali in an old dark house somewhere in Japan...and they said, "Zoinks! Like, let's make a movie, man!" Then the Cheshire Cat strolled in, eyes flashing green, grinning from ear to ear, with a sack full of shrooms saying, "I'm the f**cker with the bag of trips that's gonna hold this absurd concoction together!". This movie is t... read more

A madness movie that this Japanese "House". Crazy, psychedelic, but a bit rough draft too and a little too musical for my taste. Not really horrific but rather funny and cartoonish.
A kind of roller coaster that would just have deserved a real dramatic line (almost non-existent in this case).
As it stands, it is already a beautiful "UFO" ("F" for Filmic!)

Description: Oshare is excited about spending summer vacation with her father, until she finds out that his beautiful, freakishly serene girlfriend Ryouko would be going as well. Oshare decides she will be going to her aunt's house in the country instead. She brings with her her friends from school - Fanta (who likes to take pictures, and daydreams a lot), KunFuu (who has very good reflexes), Gari/Prof (who is a major nerd), Sweet (who likes to clean), Mac (who eats a lot), and Melody (a musician). However, the girls are unaware that Oshare's aunt is actually dead and the house is actually haunted. When they arrive at the house, crazy events ... (more)

"11.6. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Jos kriteereinä illan elokuvavalinnalle on katkaista edes hetkeksi Hollywoodin tai muuten englanninkielisten elokuvien dominanssiputki ja jotain näistä selkeästi poikkeavaa, mutta varmasti nautittavaa, on House aika passeli valinta. Oudosta koulutyttömelodraamasta sekä kikatuskomediasta aina vaan oudompaan kummitustalokauhuun (koko ajan kytevsästä yhteiskunnallisesta aspektista puhumattakaan), pysyy House mittavassa kokeellisuudessaan jatkuvasti hämment"

“Hausu es como Suspiria pero japonesa: no tiene sentido, las actuaciones son malas y a veces cringe, el guión en general es malillo pero es sumamente divertida y se te pasa volando. Aparte de ser muy bizarra, surrealista y por momentos psicodélica.

Pura locura desde el minuto 50 hasta el minuto 70 más o menos. Y aunque ya se me estaba pasando volando es de la mitad hasta el final donde si se pone muy divertida y se siente como algo cercano al terror aunque sea poco seria al mismo tiempo.

Le habría dado un poco más si el final hubiese terminado antes.

Se me hizo larga esa última escena donde llega la madrastra.

Haberla cortado antes y menos momentos de ella mirando a los árboles tan sorprendida que parecía que se había fumado algo le habría d” read more

Psychedelic Swingin' 60s & 70s Film (57 movies items)

" The script was partly inspired by the director Nobuhiko Ôbayashi's then 12 year old daughter Chigumi. She told him of a fear she had where the mirror she used would eat her. According to Ôbayashi, this is the first Japanese film to use video effects, which he applied in a scene to make one of the girls "dissolve" underwater through low fidelity video and a simple chroma key effect."

"20.7. Blu-ray Kutakuinkin ainutlaatuisen elokuvan määritelmä. Loputtomiin kokeellinen käymättä hetkeksikään puuduttavaksi tai itseään toistavaksi. Toisen maailmansodan traumat ja Obayashin mainostausta näkyvät hyvässä. Ei tämä mielestäni ole outo outouden vuoksi, vaan yrittää (ja ehdottomasti onnistuukin siinä) kuvata painajaista lapsen maailmankuvasta, joka ei ole loogista, vaan eräänlaista tajunnanvirtaa sekin. Osa tapahtumistahan on lähtöisin Obayashin nuoren tyttäre"
