    I saw this movie a long long time ago when I was a teen and…. I just don’t get the hype. I really outta give it a re-watch, tbh. Personally just found the movie corny.

    What did y’all enjoy about the film? It’s definitely out there but I don’t know about most insane Japanese horror film.

    House is a great movie but I feel compelled to point out that the director, Nobuhiko Obayashi, made a whole bunch of really great movies and I feel like he gets slept on as the guy who made ‘that one crazy movie’ (a couple of *huge* duds too, looking at *you* Drifting Classroom, maybe the worst movie ever made). His last four movies in particular (Casting Blossoms Into The Sky, Seven Weeks, Hanagatami, and The Labyrinth of Cinema) all work as a thematic tetralogy whose plaintive calls for peace and understanding (along with his signature gonzo aesthetics) I found to be particularly moving. His 1998 film Sada is another huge highlight.
