About the event

Join us after Gallery Walk, on Friday, October 1st at 8pm for a unique cinema experience!

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? The Evil Dead meets The Yellow Submarine? Any of the above will do for this hallucinatory head trip. 

An unforgettable mixture of bubblegum teen melodrama and grisly phantasmagoria, Obayashi’s deranged fairy tale House is one of Japanese cinema’s wildest supernatural ventures and a truly startling and unique work of art.

Distressed by her widowed father’s plans to remarry, Angel sets off with six of her schoolgirl friends in tow for a summer getaway in her aunt’s isolated mansion. But all is not well – in this house of dormant secrets, long-held emotional traumas have terrifyingly physical embodiments and the girls will have to use all their individual talents if they are to survive battles with evil spirits, a demonic house cat, a bloodthirsty piano, and other ghoulish technicolor visions, all realized by Obayashi via his creatively adventurous use of mattes, animation, and collage effects. 

Equally absurd and nightmarish, House might have been beamed to Earth from some other planet. It was a gigantic smash upon its original release in Japan and is one of the most exciting cult discoveries for Western audiences in years.
