House (Hausu) (1977)



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

Strange in the best way possible.

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.

Audience Reviews for House (Hausu)

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.
