Our take

Defying synopsis, categories, and rational explanation, the ghoulishly absurd & completely off-the-wall House has emerged on western shores as a horror classic of the new cult canon, like the funniest nightmare you’ve ever had. It’s worth doing right: turn out the lights and watch it at midnight!
