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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

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.

Strange in the best way possible.

[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...

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.
February 6, 2015
For connoisseurs of the bizarre, House's revival is long overdue.

It's not just a bombastically surreal movie, it's a frequently hilarious one
Full Review | Original Score: 10/10

Bizarre ghost story.

Gigglers and cultists, pony up.

House suggests that the nitrous-oxide hyperdrive of Japanese pop culture-as vivid now as ever in entertainments like Takashi Miike's Yatterman, for instance-is a brilliantly imagined, if not in fact transcendental brand of therapy
October 17, 2011
Pushed the boundaries of the depiction of terror on screen and reveals the interest in the language of experimental filmmaking in genre and mainstream cinema of the time.

If you crashed a teenage girls' pyjama party after necking some bad acid, this is probably what it'd feel like.
February 25, 2011
Daffy and brilliant in equal measure, single-minded in its devotion to every wacko trick available to an analog director.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5

Takes its good, sweet time in getting to the ostensibly scary stuff. But you won't be bored.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
November 4, 2010
Is it good? The question seems to miss the point. It's like nothing you've every seen...
November 1, 2010
compelling in its own right, even if it is impossible to take seriously as anything more than a delirious, envelope-pushing experiment
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
