I've stumbled upon written and video reviews of Hausu before, and every time I am amazed at the sheer mindfuckery going on in this movie. Here's hoping for more great pieces like this one popping up over the next weeks.

(Interesting side note: the English word for piano is "piano". Which is Italian.)

This may be one of my new favourite articles on I-Mockery. Ton of little digs on a very bizarre film. I've yet to see Hausu, but this has made me pretty sure I need to get some guys together and watch it.

A Hell of an article from the good Dr. I love the fire graphic trailing off of Hausu title, it makes the white cat look like such a bad ass! And as for Mr. Togo...Damn tht dude can break dance!!!

I actually had the pleasure of watching this movie a few months ago when they showed it on TCM. It was an interesting and creative experience, and pretty surreal at times, but that's what drew me into it. And although a couple of the girls got on my nerves a few times, I loved it anyway.

WOW This film looks bat shit insane!!!

Hey, glad to see you guys finally trying to make some sense out of this bizarre gem. Fantastic job, Dr. Boogie. :halloween2

Yesss! I fucking love the movie. And I made sure to spread it like a virus to everyone I know.

It was one of the WTFiest of the J-cinema WTF classics.

A few years back (let's say, between the American release of The Grudge and The Grudge 2...*shudder*) there was a dvd called "Dark Tales From Japan". I don't know if it's still in stores, but I'm sure you could order it from Amazon. Anyway, nestled among diversions like "The Turbo Hag" is a sort of send-up of Hausu, only it's like the girls actually got to the Inn after all and it's the inn that's haunted. Similar annoying characters. No Roger Rabbit cats, though.

Edit: apparently there's more than one, and apparently I've seen both somehow :/

Hausu: the only horror movie that can easily be mistaken for an episode of The Monkees.

Mockery Sep 23rd, 2012 02:35 PM

Yup, I totally remember that episode of The Monkees where a floating severed head of Davy Jones bit some girl in the ass.

In all seriousness though, I really want everybody I know to watch this movie, because there's simply nothing even remotely like it. Pure madness.

Lately I've begun contemplating the serious possibility of being a comic artist. Who knows? If this really as crazed as you say--I also saw a video from Mike Mattei of Cinemassacre--this may help me learn to draw total mind-freaks.

Think my brain got raped by the sheer mind-fuckery going on here

The movie was hilarious the only thing that would make it amazing is if it the pacing was better. The pacing is what makes a difficult watch.
