    ★★★★½

    Nobuhiko Ôbayashi's comedy-horror film Hausu is above all, totally and incomprehensibly batshit crazy. It is essentially japanese craziness from beginning to end, with a never ending stream of pure creativity as we see some incredible variety of ideas put on display.

Most of what followed after, is long forgotten. This was the first film where he was restricted by the studio to actor-only, but, sure enough, he soon took over a lot of the directorial aspects from Edward Sedgwick and infused his creative mind into the workflow.
