House (Nobuhiko Obayashi, 1977)

I posted the trailer for this film before and have luckily found a link to watching it online!
I plan on buying it on DVD when Criterion puts it out later this year, replete with new subtitles, replacing the old nonsensical ones of past versions. I don't usually plan on this when I haven't even seen the film yet.

I did some research on this and found that Mr. Obayashi, previous to making this film— and after making it— was a prominent and prolific commercial director in Japan.

Apparently silly, scary, beautiful and kitschy all at time same time, this film reeks of awesomeness.

If you watch it online, tell me what you think. I plan on watching it tonight with a box of ginger snaps.
