“The Waldo After Dark” classic cult film series continues with “House/Hausu” on Saturday, October 8 at 9pm

Event has passed

How to describe Nobuhiko Obayashi’s indescribable 1977 movie House /Hausu? As a psychedelic ghost tale? A stream-of-consciousness bedtime story? An episode of Scooby-Doo as directed by Mario Bava? Any of the above will do for this hallucinatory head trip about a schoolgirl who travels with six classmates to her ailing aunt’s creaky country home and comes face-to-face with evil spirits, a demonic house cat, a bloodthirsty piano, and other ghoulish visions, all realized by Obayashi via mattes, animation, and collage effects. Equally absurd and nightmarish, House might have been beamed to Earth from some other planet. Never before available on home video in the United States, it’s one of the most exciting cult discoveries in years.
What The Waldo After Dark Series is about: “Cult films have come to the MidCoast! Laugh, cry, scream and hurl with us at our bi-weekly series featuring cult classics and underground films. Do you love sick stunts, marvelous martial arts, hellraising haunts, mysterious melding mutants, violent valley girls and melancholy makeshift-family frolics in the frost? Well, c’mon down and make yourself at home amongst the film freaks, celluloid creeps and genre geeks. One of us! “ They have a raffle for prizes, also!
