Absolutely baffled by these high scoring reviews!!
Firstly I am a huge fan of Junji Ito and the Tomie/Museum of Terror series, (the three stars I have given are only awarded on the basis that I love the comics) and as I fan I expected to be able to overlook the film's flaws (awful score, terrible acting, bastardisation of the story line, a main actress not beguiling enough to play the part and bargain basement special effects etc etc) but apparently this is not possible.
Initially I thought the film was supposed to be making some sort of joke, but no. It's just bad. And not even good-bad. Admittedly this is the only film in the Tomie series I have seen, but based on this experience I wouldn't seek out the others.
Don't bother, especially if you are an Ito fan.
