House (Hausu) 1977

“House, HOUSE” moans a throaty man’s voice in time with the opening animation, and with that you know that you’re getting into something a little bit…different.

This movie is notorious in the weird-manga-loving community and I had only seen YouTube excerpts of it. It’s unavailable in any official format, and I had never tried looking for a bootleg to download. Then, much to my delight, they started screening a brand-new, never-before-seen-in-the-US 35mm print at the IFC Center here in New York.

Mrs. Torrance, today Marla isn’t here either. So it’s me, Reverend Jon from the Church of Friend here! The ever lovely Marla has asked me to help out this week and guest-post her News Day Tuesday. Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy blogpost.

So, when I was called in off of the blogger bench to pinch hit for Marla, the first piece of news that got me all semi-hard was the possibility of a Jeff Bridges-Coen Brothers Reunion.
