Noboru Iguchi - Japan, 2011
Horror, 85 min.
Tsukiko, who belongs to a photography club at high school, always feels inferior to her elder sister, Tomie. Tomie is breathtakingly beautiful and popular among the male students, including Toshio, whom Tsukiko is secretly in love with.
After one year of the accidentally death of Tomie, the life of her family will change forever.
When suddenly a girl knocks on the door.
The girl claims to be Tomie, back from the death.
One day an awful accident kills Tomie right in front of her younger sister.
Since then Tsukiko suffers from a nightmare night after night.
A year later Tsukiko and her parents are surrounding a birthday cake to celebrate dead Tomie s 18th birthday.
Suddenly they hear an eerie knock at the door.
Unbelievably, it is Tomie. She is back.
The father and mother blindly welcome Tomie in tears, but Tsukiko feels instinctive fear.
Tomie gradually reveals her true face, but only when she is with Tsukiko.
Now Tsukiko s nightmare becomes reality, and the terrifying days begin...
This is one of the many movies based on the manga series 'Tomie' of Junji Ito.
It is hard to describe this movie, because of the bizarre events that happens.
How further to the ending, how more bizarre it gets.
In the beginning we`ll see an unforgettable death scene with amazing effects and camera. And at the ending you will see things you never could have imagine.
Good camera, good acting. Special effect were sometime cheap C.G. but in overall freaky and disturbing enough.
The movie is slow and not really scary. It is more about the gore.
The movie kinda reminds me of 'Funky Forest'.
So if you like bizarre stuff in the Japanese way, you`ll like this movie!
