Tomie (1999) is based on the comics by Junji Ito, like Uzumaki, right? Has anybody seen Tomie? Recommended viewing, oh respected forumites?

That movie sucked really bad from what I can remember. I gave it a rent about 7 months ago and fell asleep like 30 minutes into it. From what I remember I would not recomend this one. At least rent it first.

I can't really recommend it. It's an odd movie and I guess if I had read the comic I would have understood it a little better. But I don't really like the "linked twins murder" genre that Tomie sort of falls into. A lot of the deaths are interesting (one umbrella murder was amusing) but they take place offscreen. The ending confrontation was really dull, but the very last shot has stuck with me for some reason.

If you could watch a friend's copy you'd be much better off than paying for your own!

Great...thanks for the warning. I'll definitely try before I buy.
