Quickie: House (1977)

Warning: Do not watch this movie when you’re high. Seriously.

House is an indescribable, epoch-making, horror movie slip and slide that should be feasted on by any patron of wacky—and I mean wacky—cinema.

Every frame in this movie looks like a cheesy, old-fashioned painting, and satirically enough, it made the aesthetic of this film so beauteously persuasive. Primarily though, the editing in House is what makes House, House. It fluctuates through just about all possible processes of the editing artform to grant the viewers with a heart-attack-comparable encounter like no other. The score is, fancifully phenomenal as well.

House is one of, if not, the most visually attractive horror movie(s) of all-time. Think of it as Japan’s version of the 1977 Suspiria, just way, way weirder. Yeah. That sounds about right.

Verdict: A-

Wait. Holy s***. House and Suspiria were both released during the same exact year. Ummmmmmmmmmmmm…
