House (1977)

17 11 2010

This is a zany Japanese horror-comedy in the spirit of Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead trilogy.  It’s creative low-budget horror that doesn’t take itself too seriously and has all the right ingredients to be cult-classic, which it is.  The peculiar mix of schoolgirl comedy, sappy theme music and graphic supernatural horror make it entertaining and unpredictable in the best ways.  The director also doesn’t shy away from stylish psychedelic effects, all of which are incredibly outdated, corny, and awesome.  Certainly not for everyone but House fits the bill for the perfect midnight/cult horror movie.

9/10
