CCU 10: House/Hausu (1977) & The Shining

Aaron, Mark and Keith Silva talk about the Japanese cult, off-the-wall horror film House. This is a film that has to be seen and can hardly be described. We follow it up with a discussion of Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, which we feel is the benchmark when it comes to haunted house films. Unfortunately we had some technical issues and lost a good bit of the House segment, but plan to re-record soon.
