That's right, mark your calendars for October 26th -- because that's when the crazy cult flick will be in stores and ready for purchase according to the Criterion website. I'd tell you a bit about Hausu, but honestly it's just one of those films you have to see for yourself. Descriptions really don't do it justice. What I can describe is the list of what Criterion's planning for the new release. Check it out.
- New, restored high-definition digital transfer (with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray edition)
- Constructing a House, a new video piece featuring interviews with director Nobuhiko Obayashi, story scenarist and daughter of the director Chigumi Obayashi, and screenwriter Chiho Katsura
- Emotion, a 1966 experimental film by Obayashi
- New video appreciation by director Ti West (House of the Devil)
- Theatrical trailer
- New and improved English subtitle translation
- PLUS: An essay by Chuck Stephens
