One of the great rediscoveries of the past 20 years, this candy-colored ghost story follows a group of teenage girls who head off for a weekend in the country but end up at the mercy of a haunted house and its sinister inhabitants including a man-eating piano, an evil cat spirit, and, for some reason, a carload of watermelons. Don’t miss the premiere of Nobuhiko’s final film, LABYRINTH OF CINEMA, premiering January 14-16!

“Delirious, deranged, gonzo or just gone, baby, gone – no single adjective or even a pileup does justice to House.” – Manohla Dargis, New York Times
