Hausu (1977)

Nobuhiko Obayashi directs Kimiko Ikegami, Miki Jinbo and Ai Matubara in the Japanese horror comedy where a group of schoolgirls vacation in a possessed house.

Absolutely bonkers. The Evil Dead meets some Saturday morning kids cartoon put on fast forward. Pretty much every trick shot and daft joke is plopped through the meat grinder. Exhausting but hard not to love for its bonafide cult particulars.
