Film Series: Hausu

1977. Japan. Dir: Nobuhiko Obayashi. With Kimiko Ikegami. 88 min.

A group of high school girls vacationing at a witch’s house – as high school girls are wont to do – are presented with an unsettlingly wacky series of terrors, including hungry pianos and supernatural felines. A veteran of Japan’s visually inventive ad industry, Obayashi drew upon his young daughter’s nightmares for the basis of this psychedelic horror-comedy.
