Girl crawling on floor.

How to describe Nobuhiko Obayashi’s indescribable 1977 movie House (Hausu)? As a psychedelic ghost tale? A stream-of-consciousness bedtime story? An episode of Scooby-Doo as directed by Mario Bava? Any of the above will do for this hallucinatory head trip about a schoolgirl who travels with six classmates to her ailing aunt’s creaky country home and comes face-to-face with evil spirits, a demonic house cat, a bloodthirsty piano, and other ghoulish visions, all realized by Obayashi via mattes, animation, and collage effects. Equally absurd and nightmarish, House might have been beamed to Earth from some other planet… it’s one of the most exciting cult discoveries in years. – Criterion

Directed by Nobuhiko Obayashi. 1977. Japan. 88 min. Japanese with English subtitles.

Also playing, the recently deceased Nobuhiko Obayashi’s swan song,  Labyrinth of Cinema.
