Not much better than the first movie...
8 April 2013 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Well, at least it was better than the original first "Tomie" movie, but not much. "Tomie: Replay", like the "Tomie" movie, was suffering from a very long and dragged out story that told very little, thus making it seem to drag on forever and ever. And also like "Tomie", there was absolutely no horror in this movie, either that or I have become too seasoned to Japanese horror movies.

The story, however, is a tad more well-constructed than the one told in "Tomie". Although, again as with the first "Tomie" movie, then it was suffering from a lack of clear red line in the story; there was just too much side tracking and telling stuff that really didn't further the already slow-paced storyline. The story is about Tomie being reborn in a hospital, and those who participated in this event have either disappeared or stopped working. Finding her father's notes, a young student sets out to find out the reason behind these odd events, and she is helped by a young man who is out on a similar quest, to find out why his long-time friend suddenly started to behave weird.

Unlike the first movie, then there is a much more clear and visible production value to this movie, which is a step upward on the enjoyment scale. And the someone, although not much, improved storyline was also a boost upward.

But in overall, then "Tomie: Replay" is not all that much of an improvement, and if you have seen "Tomie", then you will be entertained by "Tomie: Replay". But personally, I am hoping that the other movies in the series will prove more scary and entertaining.

For a Japanese horror movie, then "Tomie: Replay" was surprisingly devoid of scares, spooky stuff and horror.
