There’s a lot of mixed reviews for the Tomie movies but I think they are worth watching. There’s really nothing else like them. Long ago I rented the first movie knowing nothing about Junji Ito’s manga but I became obsessed with his work afterwards. Without spoiling anything, the appearance of Tomie drives the men around her crazy and chaos ensues. Every story follows the same premise with various twists for how crazy people get. I like the first movie the most in that it just feels like a solid indie movie. Watching it years last, I still get ghostbumps when Tomie finally shows her face. The music is also amazing; not only a haunting soundtrack but nearly impossible to find, adding to its mystery.
