4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating tale of a demon in the guise of a schoolgirl; leaves many questions unanswered, November 2, 2010
This review is from: Tomie (DVD)
Tomie is a schoolgirl who has the good fortune to be killed, over and over again. Why good fortune? Because she's really a demon in disguise, and with each death she multiplies and sends men to Hell. This first installment in the Tomie series tells of Tomie and Tsukiko, best friends at school until something happens that leaves Tomie missing and Tsukiko with strange dreams, but no memory. As Tomie regains her former powers, regrown from her severed head, she creeps closer and closer to Tsukiko and the truth of what happened. Tomie is a cult hero, a feminist nightmare--an evil demon who uses femininity to send men to Hell and spread the feminine mystique. The movies bring lots of men out, too, to see the beautiful Tomie--perhaps there is some truth to the tale?

The full Tomie story is not covered in any one installment; I suggest that you follow Tomie with Tomie: Another Face for more insight into Tomie's origins and purpose.
