description

Play-Asia.com says: 

Based on the manga by Junji Ito, UZUMAKI is one of the best manga-film conversions based on one of Ito’s works.
--- A pretty high school girl gets involved in a series of ghostly and horrible tragedies which all relate to the strange whirlpool phenomena: a man becomes obsessed with whirlpool shaped objects; an evil girl swallowed by the whirlpool; and whirlpool-like hair. No one knows the truth behind the phenomena. How can this poor girl escape from the entanglement of the terrible whirlpool? --- If you have ever been remotely interested in the utterly ridiculous and just plain strange things that come out of Japan, UZUMAKI is a must have. It’s wacky, it’s creepy, and it’s totally psychedelic. The visual style of the film is quite unique. Relying heavily on the appropriately creepy green tint and some very excellent camera effects, UZUMAKI is a standing point for low budget movies. The audio is also one of the films strong points, using equally zany music to match the plot and visuals. UZUMAKI could go two ways for most people. On one hand you have a fairly creepy story if you’re open minded; however those who are more closed minded will enjoy this film much more for the zany Japanese-ness which can be incredibly hilarious. Either way there is no denying that UZUMAKI stays very true to its original source and for any fan of the manga, which means a lot. Unfortunately for the people who don’t quite know what to make of it, it can be frustrating when you don’t find the bizarre story funny or can’t take it seriously enough to be freaked out by it. That’s why I had to deduct and star from it. UZUMAKI can be confusing in its intentions and for the few that can’t really decide what to make of it, it’s not that enjoyable. RECOMMENDED -Adam Kitano Other Junji Ito film adaptations: TOMIE, KAKASHI, TOMIE FORBIDDEN FRUIT
