House is a gleefully demented collage of grand guginol guffaws and bizarre sequences.

The best thing in this wild assemblage of collage and cartoon and fairy tale is that the girls, when they're eaten, scream with glee as their cut-out body parts spin around the frame. It's cannibalism as the ultimate kiddie ride.
There's never a dull moment, though I certainly felt dulled by the time it was over.
Movies as original as this one don't come along very often, so grab it while you can.
For connoisseurs of the bizarre, House's revival is long overdue.
Gigglers and cultists, pony up.
While there's a dweeby midnight-movie inventiveness about the look of all this, there's also an awful lot to forgive artistically (or to drunkenly roll with, as the case may be).
It is a true original of considerable historical importance. It's gory, silly, at times splendidly incoherent, and yet possessed of a fairy tale innocence.
too smart and funny, too self-aware and post-modern, to be truly scary - but its trippy energy and surreal unpredictability make it a film that takes up long-term residence in your consciousness anyway.
Are we truly laughing with a film like House, or simply at it?. . .If you simply must know, get your tickets early, House is so bad it's good, and thus it is bound to sell out.
[T]he archival cult find of the decade: a candy-colored style bomb of horror movie more jaw-droppingly unreal than scary, an experimental piece of pop-art genre filmmaking that is cartoonish in its graphic expressionism.
An assault of expressionistic techniques...
It's not just a bombastically surreal movie, it's a frequently hilarious one
Highly original and more than a little kitschy. Japanese horror, 70's style.
Group of school girls go to visit auntie of one of the girls and stay in her house. Cue freaky happenings and creepy cat.
Really is silly, but does it with flair.
What the hell did I just watch?
Weird, weird, weird. Like a girl gets eaten by a piano weird.
How does one describe House to someone who has never seen it? Picture Sid & Marty Kroft - on acid - remaking Susperia - in Japan.
