It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these, but I was so inspired by watching Nobuhiko Obayashi’s House that I decided to reboot my podcast! Well, it’s not so much a reboot as it is a sequel. But whatever you want to call it, I hope you’ll join me for the long-awaited (for me at least) third episode of The Last Theater on the Left Podcast!
In this episode, I discuss a movie I recently watched for the first time and can’t stop thinking about, 1977’s House! This film has gotten a lot of praise and has been called “crazy” and “incomprehensible” by many reviewers, but I think most of the commentary I’ve seen online, even though it might be positive and well-meaning, misses the point of this fabulously wild Japanese horror movie. Listen as I dig into the deeper meaning behind the frenetic visuals of House and try to get people to view it from a different perspective. Yes, it’s a crazy movie, but it’s so much more than that. It’s crazy for a purpose, and I think it’s brilliant.
