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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
