Obayashi’s “House” is a Stylistic Masterpiece

Nobuhiko Obayashi’s classic 1977 film, “House,” which is also known as “Hausu,” is a creative and dreamy psychedelic experience that has to be seen to be believed. What was supposed to be Japanese company, Toho’s answer to Spielberg’s “Jaws” became something entirely different. Sprouting from the imagination of Obayashi’s daughter, the film transformed into a bizarre creation truly of its own with use of a unique blend of practical and special effects, varied editing techniques, and beautiful set pieces. Originally panned by critics when it first got released in Japan for it’s absurdity, it has since gone on to become a cult classic among fans of Asian cinema all around the world, as well as many film critics today.

Enter the world of Obayashi.

The story of “House” begins with a high school student named, Gorgeous, who is excited for summer vacation, which she has plans to spend with her father.
