"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.

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.

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)

“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"
