I was lucky enough to attend a screening of the Japanese cult classic Hausu (House) at BAM recently and I can't say enough good things about it. It's about a group of schoolgirls who visit a haunted house where they are terrorized by killer lampshades, pianos, and a white persian cat named Blanche. Hausu is not yet availible on DVD (although Criterion owns the rights) but it will be screening at the IFC center for a for a week starting on January 15th and touring the country shortly thereafter. A list of dates can be accessed here. Much to my delight, there is also new Hausu merchandise in the Criterion store. I am so in love with this t-shirt.
