Capital Celluloid 2012 - Day 192: Wed July 11

House (Obayashi, 1977): Roxy Bar and Screen, London Bridge, 7.45pm
This is the first screening from the Aorta Burst film club. Here is their welcome note:

AORTA BURST is a new monthly film club dedicated to showcasing strange and wonderful films from around the world that are less well travelled than other alternative fare, that hits close to the heart. We kick off on July the 11th with a double bill of Japanese director Nobuhiko Obayashi insanity with the downright fantastic 1977 horror fantasy 'HAUSU' followed by the almost totally unseen 'THE DRIFTING CLASSROOM' from 1987, a gloriously bizarre hallucination based on the legendary manga by Kazuo Umezu.
Time Out review of House:
'This mad Japanese horror flick favours wild, campy invention over formal logic and throbs with originality, offering the rare opportunity to see people perish by, say, drowning in a sea of cat's blood or being transformed into bananas.'
Here is Kim Newman introducing the film
