Little Theatre 5 – The Jack Garner Theatre
(Inside Little 2-5, at approx. 8 Winthrop Street)
Picked by: Tyler, Projectionist
For fans of: Surreal and zany dark films, House (1977), Japanese films, musicals
A family moves to the country to run a rustic mountain inn when, to their horror, the customers begin befalling sudden and unlikely fates.
Tyler says: A zombie horror flick. A stop-motion animated romp. A melodramatic tearjerker. A political satire. A musical parody. A feel-good family comedy. A whirlwind romance. A karaoke singalong. The genre-bending endlessly fun Happiness of the Katakuris is all these things and more!
1 hour 53 mins | Comedy/Fantasy/Musical/Horror | 2001 | Japan | Japanese with English subtitles
Directed by Takashi Miike
