|Hausu a.k.a. House|
A group of high school girls, each with a name to describe their primary ability or attribute such as Gorgeous, Kung-fu, Melody, Mac for stomach, Sweet, Prof, and Fantasy, need a place to go for summer vacation and they decide to visit Gorgeous's aunt and her creepy old house in the country.
Strange things begin to happen to the girls immediately. They board the train and Gorgeous's aunt's white cat magically appears there with them. None of the girls seem to think that's odd. They arrive at the house after a strange encounter with a portly watermelon vendor, and make themselves at home with the creepy white haired aunt and her creepy white haired cat. The girls tidy up the place and help with the meals and then they start to disappear one by one.
I can't even properly describe this film. Everything including the sets, the effects, the dialogue, the plot - I mean everything - is just bizarre, but it works. I can't recommend Hausu enough. It's a great movie and perhaps even better when you're high.
