House (ハウス Hausu?) is a 1977 Japanese horror film directed and produced by Nobuhiko Obayashi. The film stars mostly amateur actors with only Kimiko Ikegami and Yōko Minamida having any notable previous acting experience. The film is about a schoolgirl traveling with her six classmates to her ailing aunt's country home, where they come face to face with supernatural events as the girls are, one by one, devoured by the home.



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Really interesting piece, with a very Japanese arrangement -- I can just feel it. Sounds almost pop-y. I'm not sensing any horror until much later in the piece, when that accidental kicks in, but it's certainly very pleasant to listen to. The beginning is almost chip-tune, until the distortion comes in, which reminds me of an old guitar amp VST I can't place the name of. My favorite part is the seamless blend into the -- what sounds like live -- piano sample. Could just be a lot of reverb, though, fooling my ears, aha. Excellent work.

Could use just a bit more percussion pickmeup throughout, I think -- a little variation to keep things interesting when you repeat a phrase. Perhaps reverse cymbals or their whooshy white noise counterparts would help. Also, watch your volume levels to make sure no distortion occurs in higher frequencies, or mids. I couldn't tell if it was the distorted piano that was sticking out over the Napoleon Dynamite-esque organ synth or what. Keep an eye out. Maybe use a master limiter.

Otherwise, keep it up! Thanks for the request!
