It’s spooky movie season, and that means my annual viewing of House (Hausu). I endorse this flick every year and I’m gonna do it again.
House is part coming-of-age fantasy film, part spookhouse horror movie, part music video, part experimental film. It’s got the logic of a cartoon and the visual palette (and female heroines) of a Dario Argento movie.
It’s wacky, intentionally kitsch, and kind of weirdly moving at the end. It’s one of my favorite movies, horror or otherwise, and I cannot recommend it enough. Please do yourself a favor and watch it in your rotation of spoopy movies.
