House (1977) Obayashi - 10/10: A bunch of Japanese girls visit an aunt's house that is controlled/haunted by an evil cat who takes them out one by one. Ridiculous & bonkers in the best way!

Looper (2012) Johnson - 9/10: Smart time travel movie where the main character has to face killing his future self, but can also have a hand in preventing future world tragedy.
