Hausu (House) is a Japanese horror from 1977. Described as a psychedelic ghost story, an unforgettable mixture of bubblegum teen melodrama and grisly phantasmagoria, a deranged fairy tale, a stream-of-consciousness bedtime story, a satirical murder mystery or an episode of Scooby Doo as directed by Dario Argento. I’m certainly struggling for words trying to describe this silly and absolutely gorgeous film.Hausu is definitely up there with Harold and Maude, The Man Who Fell to Earth, Cabaret, A Clockwork Orange and The Rocky Horror Picture Show on my list of favourite 70s films.
