Nobuhiko Obayashi’s Hausu is my favorite cult film that I’ve never seen. Recently, the indispensable Janus Films has been touring it theatrically and I’ve managed to miss every L.A. screening. I can only hope the tour means a Criterion DVD or Blu-Ray release is imminent. The newly subtitled trailer Janus posted today only reinforces that hope.
“HOUSE IS CALLING TO YOU COME BACK HOME AND MARRY ME.” Enough said. You had me at the disembodied fingers playing piano.
