Nobuhiko Obayashi’s Hausu (House) is one of the best cult movies ever made. Strike that. It’s one of the best movies ever made. If you live in New York, you have two chances to see it this week. The IFC Center is doing midnight shows of the film on Friday, April 5th and Saturday, April 6th.
Our own Alec Kubas-Meyer wrote about Hausu in The Cult Club, if you recall. Many of my friends here in New York discovered it about 10 years ago after a chance rental at Kim’s Video, and I remember my first viewing a couple years ago being quite magical.
