Tomie is another so called Japanese "new wave horror"that started with "the Ring".This one is based on a manga comic and tells the story of the girl Tomie who gets killed out of jelousy and manages to take bloody revenge trough reincarnation. The movie starts promising by building up the tension very slowly and revealing the plot bit by little bit.But once the whole plot is carefully revealed with the help of flashbacks the movie speeds up to a very confusing end.As usually with Asian movies the camerawork and editing is nicely done but can't save the movie to give that extra boost to get to the same level as "the Ring" or "Shikoku".This movie was followed by Tomie2:replay.The soundtrack was provided by the hip Escalator records from Tokyo.
