Film Series: Hausu

1977. Japan. Dir: Nobuhiko Obayashi. With Kimiko Ikegami. 88 min. 35mm print



A schoolgirl named Gorgeous and her friends head out to Auntie’s creaky country home to be devoured one by one by a bloodthirsty piano, phantom mattresses, and other ghoulish traps. With a stream-of-consciousness plot and boldly experimental design, this absurdist ghost take comes to life as a candy-colored pop art hallucination.
