''Hausu'' (or ''House'') is 1977 Japanese [[SurrealHorror surrealist horror]] [[HorrorComedy comedy]] directed by Nobuhiko Obayashi. It is considered the SpiritualPredecessor to ''Film/TheEvilDead1981'', ''Hausu'' is the story of seven girls who decide to go to the country home belonging to the aunt of one of them, when all their summer vacation plans fall apart. Strange things begin to happen as it seems that evil forces are at work to KillEmAll. It can be best described as a drug-addled DavidLynch's version of a more colourful (if that's even possible) ''Film/{{Suspiria}}'' remake. TheCriterionCollection memorably described the film as both "a psychedelic ghost tale" and "an episode of ''[[WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooWhereAreYou Scooby-Doo]]'' as directed by Creator/MarioBava"
