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

Bizarre and beautifully kitsch Japanese horror where six teenage girls travel to a remote mansion to stay with the head of the group, Angel’s, long unseen aunt. Unbeknownst to them, the aunt has turned into some kind of life-sucking demon whose house kills unmarried girls so she can live.

While it would be easy to dismiss this film as 70s trash, it should be praised for its sheer ... read more

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)

"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"

" Date: 4/12/2020 Viewed: Criterion Channel Re-Watch Note: I haven't seen this movie in the last 15 years and I decided to rewatch it in honor of Nobuhiko Ōbayashi. This is a divisive movie because people either like this movie or hate it. I love this movie for being so unique. It's a bit hard to talk about this movie without spoiling anything because this is a movie that you have to see to believe. The movie is filled with so many wacky moments that it comes off both scary and funny. The m"

“All the movie looks like a surrealistic advertising. It's not a bad thing, probably all the movie charm comes from your visual language full of references. In general i liked, but it has too much fan service imo” read more

Slant’s 100 Greatest Horror Films – 2018 Edition (100 movies items)

"Severed fingers play a piano. A decapitated head bites the ass of a screaming teenage girl. The gears of a clock are greased with blood. These are just a few of the insane moments in Nobuhiko Ôbayashi’s wonderfully batshit ghost story about a crop of giggly friends who fall prey to the titular domicile. Aside from the pastel-hued vignettes and drug-fueled animation sequences, House also provides a violently frank sermon on the terrifying consequences of not fulfilling one’s promises. “May"
