Noboru Iguchi working on “Tomie Unlimited”

Earlier today it was announced that Noboru Iguchi (The Machine Girl, RoboGeisha) has started filming a new entry in the ongoing Tomie horror film series called Tomie Unlimited and that 15-year-old model/actress Moe Arai was hand-picked the play the lead role.

There have been seven theatrically-released live-action Tomie films in total since 1999, taking the series right through the J-horror boom of the early 00s and beyond.

Based on a popular manga by Junji Ito, the films feature a malicious ghost/entity/whatever in the form of a seductive high school girl named Tomie. Every story involves Tomie using her supernatural ability to make men lust after her, eventually causing them to become irrational, jealous, and violent. Once Tomie’s true nature revealed, she usually ends up brutally murdered and dismembered (spoiler alert!), only to regenerate from whatever body parts remain and start all over again in the next film.
