EMPAC’s special Halloween treat for us is tonight’s (Thursday) screening of Nobuhiko Obayashi’s psychedelic 1970s horror film House.

The titular structure is host to a group of schoolgirls on vacation; unkindly, various objects in said structure decide to kill the unfortunate teenagers. The director co-wrote the screenplay with his daughter, and the result manages to parody horror film conventions while being plenty scary.

Here, an unfortunate character named Melody is being devoured by a piano.

House will be screened tonight (Thursday, Oct. 31) at 7:30 PM in the Theater at EMPAC (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy). Tickets are $6. For more info, call 276-3921.
