HOUSE (1977)

Original Title: Hausu ハウス
Director: Nobuhiko Obayashi
Runtime: 88 min
Country: Japan

Screening Format: 35mm


To avoid spending time with her father and his new lover, Gorgeous decides to visit her aunt's remote mansion. Together with six of her closest friends, the group encounters supernatural events on the estate.

Director Obayashi incorporated ideas discussed with his preteen daughter Chigumi into the film, furthering the concept of childlike fears during production when, as acting director of special effects, he decided to make the special effects look as though a child had made them.

Monsters have entertained and united us through our fear – from the genre defining Orang Minyak to the enduring image of Godzilla tearing through the streets of Tokyo – A Fear of Monsters explores the monsters that have traversed folklores and popular culture to the silver screen.

Featuring Asian horror films from the 1950s – 2000s, this programme is a cinematic continuation of AFA’s exhibition, State of Motion 2019: A Fear of Monsters.
