HOUSE, A film by Nobuhiko Obayashi, 1977, NR, 87min.
How to describe Nobuhiko Obayahshis indescribable 1977 movie House? As a psychedelic ghost tale? A stream-of-consciousness bedtime story? An episode of Scooby Doo as
directed by Dario Argento? Any of the above will do for this hallucinatory headtrip about a schoolgirl who travels with six classmates to her ailing aunts creaky country home, only to come face to face with evil spirits, bloodthirsty pianos, and a demonic housecat. Too absurd to be genuinely terrifying, yet too nightmarish to be merely comic, House seems like it was beamed to Earth from another planet. Never before released in the United States, and a bona fide cult classic in the making, House is one of the most exciting genre discoveries in years.
