“House” awesome Japanese horror movie!

Friday, June 26th, 2009


I just saw House aka “Hausu” a Japanese movie from 1977 and loved it! It has many of the movie “ingredients” that I adore. A fluffy cat with powers! Giant floating heads! (I love those in my comics too). Bright colors! Written by the director’s 11 year old daughter, it is completely bananas and over the top slapstick horror comedy movie. Like Suspiria but way less frightening and way more wacky and psychedelic! The New York Asian Film Festival added another showing on July 2nd and I’m sure it will sell out. Check it out!
