For all your cult film, tv, cartoon, comic and video game needs

Hausu (1977)

Directed by Nobuhiko Obayashi, Hausu (aka House) follows a young Japanese girl who goes by the nickname Gorgeous (played by Kimiko Ikegami) who has plans for a summer vacation with her father (Saho Sasazawa) who had been in Italy scoring film music.

When Gorgeous’ father returns home he surprises Gorgeous by announcing she has a new stepmother, Ryoko Ema (Haruko Wanibuchi). This upsets Gorgeous as her mother had died eight years earlier. Gorgeous goes to her bedroom and writes a letter to her aunt asking if she could come visit her this summer instead. Gorgeous’ aunt replies and allows her to come visit. Gorgeous invites her six friends, Prof (Ai Matsubara), Melody (Eriko Tanaka), Kung Fu (Miki Jinbo), Mac (Mieko Sato), Sweet (Masayo Miyako) and Fantasy (Kumiko Oba) to come along with her. On arriving at the aunt’s house, the girls are greeted by Gorgeous’ aunt (Yōko Minamida) to whom they present a watermelon.

As the weekend unfolds strange things begin occurring at the house, as soon people start to disappear!
