HOUSE

1977 ***** 87 mins.

If one thing in this world is for certain, it's that you have never seen anything like House. Calling it a Japanese horror/fantasy/comedy just doesn't do it justice. It's a psychedelic head trip. It's a film you never want to end, and when it does, you can't help but watch it over and over again. The experience of the film is one that never weakens; each time you watch it, it's as fresh as the first time. A girl and her six friends go to her ailing aunt's house over summer break. While there, the girls start dropping off, one by one. Full of crazy deaths, unforgettable images, fun characters, a haunting/fun musical score, and a cavalcade of every cheap special effect and filmmaking trick you can possibly imagine, House is a one-of-a-kind motion picture that shouldn't be missed!
