HausuOctober 29 – 31

In an effort to avoid spending time with her father and his creepy new lover, young Gorgeous (Kimiko Ikegami) resolves to visit her aunt’s remote mansion. With six of her closest friends in tow, Gorgeous arrives at the estate, where supernatural events occur almost immediately. A severed head takes flight, household appliances come to life and a portrait of a cat seems to contain an evil spirit.

Stylistically bold, genuinely creepy and indescribably bonkers… it’s no exaggeration to call HOUSE (aka HAUSU) one of our very favorite horror films.

“Delirious, deranged, gonzo or just gone, baby, gone — no single adjective or even a pileup does justice to HOUSE.” – New York Times
