Still from "House" (Japan, 1977)

ALBANY, NY (10/15/2015)(readMedia)-- HOUSE (HAUSU, Japan, 1977, 88 minutes, color, in Japanese with English subtitles, directed by Nobuhiko Ôbayashi) will be shown on Friday, October 30, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. in Page Hall, 135 Western Avenue, on the University at Albany's downtown campus. Sponsored by the New York State Writers Institute as part of its Classic Film Series, the screening is free and open to the public.

The story of seven Japanese schoolgirls and the demonically-possessed house that tries to eat them, HOUSE is a cult and critical favorite-as well as one of the wackiest horror movies ever made. Manohla Dargis of the New York Times said in 2010 "Delirious, deranged, gonzo or just gone, baby, gone....The yelps you'll hear, and possibly emit...will be of surprise and delight, not terror."
