House [Hausu] (MOC) in January - Cinema screening
Eureka Entertainment have announced the UK DVD release of Nobuhiko Obayashi’s House [Hausu] as part of their Masters of Cinema Series on 25th January 2010 priced at £17.99 RRP. Distressed by her widowed father's plans to remarry, Angel sets off with six of her schoolgirl friends in tow for a summer getaway in her aunt's isolated mansion. But all is not well - in this house of dormant secrets, long-held emotional traumas have terrifyingly physical embodiments and the girls will have to use all their individual talents if any are to survive.

- New digital anamorphic widescreen transfer
