You have not gone insane. You are watching Hausu, the Japanese haunted house movie that is filled with so much weirdness that you’ll wonder if you’ve lost your mind. The story begins with a group of innocent schoolgirls who are on their way to an aunt’s house for spring break. Little do they know that there is no aunt (at least not in the traditional sense); there is just a house—a house fueled by spirits on a mission to terrorize girls and then absorb them into its floorboards like a delicious, bloody meal. But oh, how creative the house is. It has so many methods to lure each girl to their certain death that it will blow your mind, literally. There is absolutely nothing normal about Hausu. Hausu is crazy! A swirling vortex of color and sound, with an out-of-place jazzy soundtrack, all wrapped in a candied rainbow haze of a schoolgirl’s most romantic fantasy, this special 35mm screening of Hausu will be an unforgettable experience for those who dare to attend.
