    Be sure to watch all the way to the end of this most cerebrally strange of horror films. A straight up adaptation of the novel would probably not be as eerily effective as setting it in a radio station. An inspired choice!

    I'm a fan of the books and find this a satisfying adaptation of the first one, changes and all.

    Not since Ishii's Funky Forest has a Japanese movie made me laugh and get squicked out the way Hausu did. It's so batshit it's its own genre, with the only other film that might accompany it in said genre being Evil Dead. But Evil Dead is sedate and logical next to this. AWESOME.

    "Happiness is not always fun." This is both one of the sweetest and most devastating films I've seen. Could become a favorite if I ever develop the emotional resilience regular viewings would require.

    It's the silences that get you. The silences and the tightly crowded spaces that shouldn't allow the kind of distances those silences achieve.
