anyone who is familiar with the writings of Junji Ito would know the basic story of Tomie, and what to expect from this movie. i bought the DVD of it a few weeks ago, and have watched it a couple times. you will be able to recognize bits from the stories in the manga's, it's a fairly good movie, unless you don't enjoy reading subtitles. the DVD i bought was Japanese only with sub-titles, which i don't mind because i am used to reading it. though.. after watching the trailers, i am more looking forward to buying the 2nd and 3rd movies due to what i have seen of them. anyways, i didn't get a fright out of the movie, but it is good.. and it's not trying to jump on any band wagons.. Japanese horror will always be great for me at least
