Secret Movie Club presents: Nobuhiko Obayashi's HOUSE in 35mm
February 23, 2020

Sunday, February 23rd | 7PM - 9PM | $16 - $27 | Million Dollar Theatre

"Nothing can quite prepare you for the experience of watching Nobuhiko Obayashi’s 1977 Japanese pop music coming of age avant garde wildly stylistic Japanese horror movie.

Seemingly committed to exploding any expectation you might have for the movie, Obayashi constantly throws in scenes that have you slapping your head. Animated sequences, incredible roto-scope sequences, a rock and roll music video, a scene where someone gets eaten by a piano(!!), House ends up being a deliriously wonderful movie about the capabilities of cinema itself.

 The story, despite this description, is actually fairly easy to follow. A group of female friends in their teens go to visit a mysterious Aunt at her house in the Japanese countryside. Once they get into the house, they discover the Aunt is a demon who has lured them there to kill them off one by one, ingest their essences, so she can be young again. 

 But even though this is the story, the movie really becomes about a filmmaker so fascinated by the filmmaking process that he takes what could have been a standard throwaway teen horror movie and turns it into one of the most bold, hilarious, great stylistic experimentations in all of cinema.

 Not to get too heady or high-minded here, but one could argue that House is as inventive, visionary, and inspiring in its crazy way as Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane was to a whole generation of moviemakers.

 So come join us for an incredible cinematic experience you will never forget. In a movie palace! With a great audience."
