Nuts Unlimited!By whitehotblue (128 reviews) from Glasgow , 21 Mar 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]This is without doubt the most screwed up film I've ever seen, even for a Japanese film.
I don't even know where to start, Tomie dies in freak building site accident, comes back to life a year later a total cow and keep replicating herself no matter how many times she's bumped off! That coupled with loads of hairy, Tomie faced centipedes and a giant Tomie picture makes this a nightmare within a damaged brain.
I realise its based on a Manga comic but this is a true 100% mind trip.

Cheap rubbishBy billybbadger (64 reviews) , 24 Mar 2013Didn't see the end as the disc was damaged but I doubt if I missed anything of importance in this silly, cheap, badly acted rubbish. Worst of it's many faults is the girl playing Tomie. She is supposed to be this devastatingly stunning and much liked person but she isn't that nice looking and she doesn't come over as likeable either before or after she dies. Her acting skills amount to two looks neither of which are very convincing. The effects are rubbish. One of it's main ones is a bunch of plastic Tomie faces attached to small black rugs and dragged around the floor and hanging off walls. Really not worth you wasting you time on.
tomie the ubiquitousBy juradino (815 reviews) from London , 20 Nov 2012Tomie dies in apparent accident from sky by metal cross. Then she turns up in multitude of reincarnations from tumor to plant to make everyone stabbingly violent. Her sister fears the worst. Probably inspired by Japanese interpretation of catholicism.
Tiresome live-action ruination of horror mangaBy Dabbsy (12 reviews) from Bromley , 10 Oct 2012The original manga series was a weird episodic ghost story in which a self-centred beauty keeps coming back from the dead, often in multiples simultaneously and in grotesque ways, only to drive men mad and make them kill her again. It's all unexplained and weird, albeit repetitive.
The film version is a body horror plodder that takes certain visual aspects of the manga and not so much runs with it as takes it for a stroll. I found it tiresome and lacking in suspense. All it has going for it as a horror film is the squirmy 'ewww' bits which don't cause any shock because the director practically waves a flag to give you warning that some fake-looking body-horror special effect is going to - slowly - appear on-screen.
I suspect the problem is that Japan has been making live-action films of Tomie for a dozen years or so, so this latest reboot version seems a little tired already. Perhaps I should say it's worth seeing if you're a Tomie completist, but 'Ring' this ain't.

Do not see as it is rubbish!!By psychictasha (42 reviews) from Bexhill-on-Sea , 12 Sep 2012This was one of the most confusing and boring films I think I have seen in such a long time. You could not make sense of what was going on. The story started off well but then trailed off into madness. It was unrealistic, boring and annoying. We turned it off after 35 mins! I am surprised we lasted that long! Felt like such a waste of our evening that 35 minutes was!
