Product description

How to describe Nobuhiko Obayashis indescribable 1977 movie HOUSE (Hausu)? As a psychedelic ghost tale? A stream-of-consciousness bedtime story? An episode of Scooby-Doo as directed by Mario Bava? Any of the above will do for this hallucinatory head trip about a schoolgirl who travels with six classmates to her ailing aunts creaky country home and comes face-to-face with evil spirits, a demonic house cat, a bloodthirsty piano, and other ghoulish visions, all realized by Obayashi via a series of mattes, animation, and collage effects. Equal parts absurd and nightmarish, HOUSE might have been beamed to Earth from some other planet. Never before available on home video in the United States, its one of the most exciting cult discoveries in years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phantasmagoric, surreal & fun til the end.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 2 June 2018
For fans of lowbrow or surrealist art or anyone who likes films that don’t take themselves seriously.

Hausu is a cult classic. And that’s great but it needs to be bigger. We should have an annual viewing tradition on Halloween night. Considering this was supposed to be Japans answer to “Jaws” we get one of the greatest and original horror films of ALL time. This might not be as adored as “Jaws” and that’s understandable. But we do get a special movie. A popcorn movie. Are there deeper themes in the film, scathing social commentary? Honestly it doesn’t matter. Hausu is a feast for the eyes and ears. A multicoloured rainbow of cats, blood, kung-fu, skeletons, floating heads and of course demonic bed matresses
The plot is perfectly simple too. An accessible plot is a step towards world domination for Hausu. A group of teenage friends travel to an old house to visit one of the girls aunties. They arrive at the house then chaos ensues. What seperates Hausu from other haunted house films is it’s incredible set design, use of colour and embracing of low quality D.I.Y. effects.

The painted sets in Hausu (one set being used in a hilarious meta joke in one scene) are beautiful. From the hills to the sunset clouds, each set is crafted expertly only heightening the dream like quality of the film.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 6 October 2020
After waiting over a month for next day delivery, it being delivered wrongly and having to be returned to the sender on 5 different occasions, I finally received it, package was badly damaged and when I opened it there were bits of the case missing, broken into pieces, it won’t close properly, the disc was rattling around inside not being in it’s case properly, I don’t expect this having bought it brand new, very disappointed, I don’t usually complain about the quality of the packaging, even if the dvd doesn’t work or skips having bought it second hand, it’s the risk you take. But having bought this ‘new’ and primes next day delivery? Disappointed.
