About Hausu

Nobuhiko Obayashi’s 1977 film flew under the radar for years until the recent interest in Japanese horror films shined a light on its peculiar charms. Best viewed as The Haunting meets Hellzapoppin’, Hausu, at its gonzo best, works as a reminder of the staid and conservative state of current American horror films. The film, while a sizable hit in its homeland, never received a stateside release until its appearance on a must-have Criterion Blu-ray edition.
