House at NYAFF

Thursday, June 25, 2009

Introduced by super-fans, director Noboru Iguchi and Yoshihiro Nishimura! Unseen for years, this is your chance to finally catch this funky masterpiece on a restored digital master. Written by the director’s seven-year-old daughter, this horror movie sports some of the most surreal visuals ever put on film. A gang of schoolgirls wind up in a haunted house and encounter blood waterfalls, people-eating piano, flying heads and more fake smoke and primary colored lighting than a Mario Bava movie. You don’t watch HOUSE. You experience HOUSE. Featuring a special video introduction by the director and his daughter, no longer seven years old.
