Andrew and Matt discuss the nutty Japanese surrealist haunted house film House. (Andrew loves it)
Seven Japanese schoolgirls travel to an aunt’s house – the aunt, however, turns out to be an undead ghost. The movie’s bizarre editing choices and camera tricks make it a real trip to observe. It has legitimately thematic depth that other movies like this sometimes lack, touching briefly on the effect of WWII on the Japanese.
Somehow this turned into our longest episode ever. We talk about information found in The House wikipedia article a lot. Be warned — we also discuss comics for a good 15 minutes in the middle of this episode.
We watched the fabulous Criterion Collection version of House.
We’d like to start taking listener questions and comments on the show – if you have a message, you can leave a message for us by calling (508) 817-3408.
