There are no current or future screenings planned for this film.

An avant-garde teen-appeal ghost story that employs nearly every film technique possible in a phantasmagoria of ghostly psychedelia. Guaranteed to thrill and delight even the most jaded filmgoer. In 35mm.


“Shot with so much visual panache and mid-70s excess that it comes off like Ringu on a Pixy Stix-fueled hug-a-thon … a brain-rattling delight.”Richard Whittaker, The Austin Chronicle

“MUST-SEE-NOW – Delirious, deranged, gonzo or just gone, baby, gone — no single adjective or even a pileup does justice to HAUSU.” Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

“THE ULTIMATE MIDNIGHT MOVIE – This phantasmagoric head-trip has to be one of the strangest and most surreal movies ever made.”Matt Singer, IFC.com
