Aicka Movie Tomie (1999) HD [English subs] Japanese movie

Aicka Aicka Tomie is a Japanese psychological horror film, based on the popular manga by Junji Ito. This film version differs somewhat from the manga, focusing more on a psychological angle. The story in essence is a coming of age tale, centred around the transitional period of late youth into adulthood, a period beset by jealousies, insecurities and general anxieties. Subliminal visuals, symbolism and dialogue with double meaning are used discreetly throughout the film to reflect the underlying themes and reveal the true nature of events.

Film poster tagline: “Tomie will not die.”
