Storyline

A young girl looking through her father's notes finds something written about the last experiment he worked on before he went insane. Everything in his notebook looks ordinary until near the last page, at which point his handwriting deteriorates and the name "Tomie" is mentioned several times. From that point forward his notes are written in what looks like blood. At the same time, another young girl escapes from a hospital. Who is she, and what does she have planned?

the best of the series for what it's worth
28 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A girl named Tomie is born fully grown from a child's stomach. So is kept in a fish aquarium until she breaks out of the hospital with the help of a love-smitten patient. Meanwhile, Yumi (Sakaya Yamaguchi) after much searching finds her father's notebook, whom was the director of the same said hospital, and reads it hoping to find clues about his mysterious disappearance. The last page is written in blood. How do these two things connect? While I liked this film more than the previous one, I couldn't help but feel something was missing. Perhaps it's just that the comic book character of Tomie can't really be carried over to the big screen. I don't know. This, the best in the series of 6 (currently), is just slightly above average.

My Grade: C+
