Synopsis


House
This satirical murder mystery pits a woman who is the epitome of glamour (played by Haruko Wanibuchi) against a clever murderer during a holiday stay at a strange ghostly mansion. Seven young women, who have chosen as nicknames the brand names of much-advertised consumer products, begin to disappear in a decidedly suspicious manner. Are they fashion victims? How else can one explain the eerie coordination between their pastel outfits and the pastels of the rooms in which they appear? It is up to the heroine -- whose every screen appearance is heralded by special lighting, gentle breezes, and a soft camera focus -- to find out what is going on. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

    Chances are you already know about this film if you are looking to buy it, so I will exclude a summary. This Criterion is a must have for movie lovers and lovers of house. Best Buy did a great job shipping it, and it arrived blemish free!

    Madness, in motion picture form

    "House" needs to be seen to be believed. It's probably one of the craziest, most bizarre films ever produced. Funny, spooky and gross, but genuinely off-its-rocker insane.

    First time I saw this movie it was in theaters as part of a cult classic series and I was so thankful when I heard Criterion was adding it to their collection. Immediately leaped for the Blu-Ray and I love the restored graphics, audio, and all of the extra features. Honestly, one of my favorite movies to watch because of it's absurdity and this edition just makes it better.
