House (1977)

I’ve heard a lot about this movie lately, but nothing that I heard could have prepared me for this. In fact, Q asked me as it started “Are you ready for this?” and the answer was definitely no. I knew it right away, too, from the

Disembodied head action is the best action.

very first scene.

Basically, this is about a group of young girls whose summer plans have gone up in smoke, and so as a last resort end up going to one of the girls’ (Gorgeous, yes her name is Gorgeous) aunt’s house, in the country. Yes, the house is haunted. But that’s not what’s interesting about this movie. What’s interesting is how it looks and how it was made. I don’t really know how to describe it but to say it looks like a live-action cartoon; a moving collage.

It’s wacky. It’s bloody. It’s totally goofy. It’s horror for the Tiger Beat audience. The only thing that really started to get on my nerves was the constant, high-pitched giggle of seven Japanese teenagers. But any movie that has moving decapitated heads is usually a winner for me.

Watch this. It couldn’t possibly disappoint you, unless you’re the most boring person in the world.
