Presented by Fareena Arefeen, 2016 Houston Youth Poet Laureate
Screening on Halloween weekend, House invokes the spirit of the holiday. This hallucinatory head trip follows a schoolgirl who travels with six classmates to her ailing aunt’s creaky country home. Evil spirits, a demonic house cat, a bloodthirsty piano, and other ghoulish visions are all realized by filmmaker Nobuhiko Obayashi via mattes, animation, and collage effects. House is a memorable cult favorite that is hard to describe—and not to be missed!
“Delirious, deranged, gonzo or just gone, baby, gone—no single adjective or even a pileup does justice to House … [an] energetic exemplar of pulp surrealism.” —New York Times
“House … is really the Damndest Thing: a gleefully chaotic DayGlo haunted house movie (Sam Raimi has to have seen this) that suggests the Sid and Marty Krofft universe gone mental. Ok, mental-er …” —Seattle’s Stranger
“House is very real, very strange and willfully weird. The result is phantasmagoric nonsense, as if Sam Raimi, Dario Argento, Russ Meyer, and Roman Polanski had randomly edited together clips from a soap opera, a slasher flick, and a feminine hygiene commercial.” —Detroit’s Metro Times
