Hausu

HausuLast night I watched Hausu with George and Dan. All three of us are battle-scarred veterans of bad and weird movies: The Baby, Enter Zombie King!, Shriek of the Mutilated, Manos: The Hands of Fate, Sasquatch Mountain. But we’ve never seen ANYTHING like this before. The director had never done a film before, but was a veteran of 1970s TV commercials. And that’s just what it feels like: a bog-standard vengeful ghost plot taking place in a 90-minute Mentos commercial with overtones of H.R. Pufnstuff and Scooby Doo. Oh, and people are occasionally killed in a surrealistically gory fashion. And there’s a bear that cooks ramen in a street stall. Seriously, you should probably just watch it.
