“No single adjective or even a pileup does justice to House” – Manhola Dargis, New York Times

“You’d have to imagine Pee-wee’s Playhouse with a witch that eats schoolgirls, only amped up by a factor of 100″ – David Edelstein, New York Magazine

“It may be impossible not to be stunned” – Michael Atkinson, The Village Voice

Seven girls on their summer trip pay a visit to a possessed house which plans to eat them in extremely bizarre and surreal ways. How to describe Nobuhiko Obayashi’s 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 aunt’s 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 mattes, animation, and collage effects. Equally absurd and nightmarish, House might have been beamed to Earth from some other planet. Never before available on home video in the United States, it’s one of the most exciting cult discoveries in years.

Whether you’ve seen it before or you’re losing your ghost cat virginity for the very first time, all who watch this film are forever changed…into bananas.

Dir. Nobuhiko Obayashi. 1977. 110 min.

Midnight Special! $5 beer + shot combos available during the screening.
