Movie: Hausu

Postby RSMurphy on Mon Nov 02, 2009 2:51 pm

I've yet to see the entire film, but Ace turned me on to one of its most infamous scenes last night and I'm becoming mildly obsessed. In the span of almost two minutes I went from weirded-the-fuck-out to laughing my ass off, then back to being totally creeped-out. It's a Japanese horror film from 1977, and I couldn't begin to tell you how demented and stylish it is. Seriously fucked me up for a good five minutes. The plot is basically about a group of Japanese girls staying in a house that literally eats them alive.

Piano eats girl

Has anyone seen this headfuck?

Well it looks like I have a new favorite film.
Looks like a Japanese version of the second Evil Dead.

I have a copy of it, if anyone wants to borrow it. You'll have to come pick it up in Lansing though.

Thanks x1000 for hepping us to it, Ace.

Showed this one on the big screen at our H'ween party. Somebody asked me what was going on. I said "At any given time during this film, my answer will be 'How the fuck should I know?'"

I love this movie. I think I'm better off not knowing what it's about. NOT CRAP.

Woke-up to a burned DVD sitting right next to the computer. No subtitles, though. Don't think I really need them at this point.

This movie was so much fun. I really think that I need to see it again. The great looking parts were really well done and the bad looking parts were totally low rent. It's surprising that so many aesthetic elements could be found in one movie.

Watched this crazy movie yesterday, thanks to this thread, totally recommended. There's an absurd amount of things going on in this film at all points, it's just nuts.

Incredible haunted house movie. Serves as a good counterpoint in a double-feature with Kiyoshi Kurosawa's Sweet Home.

NOT CRAP.

This shirt is pretty rad. I'm impressed that Criterion is releasing cool merch like this.

Yeah, the 35mm print didn't get here until today, so I held off on seeing it, since I saw the digital "remaster" at NYAFF last year.

Now I probably won't get to see it on the big screen again.
