Tomie: Beginning

Posted under Japanese Movies by admin on Wednesday 25 February 2009 at 15:15

Tomie Kawakami (川上 富江) is the main character in Junji Ito’s horror comics from Japan, as well as the title character in a string of Japanese horror films made from 1999 – 2005. Tomie is played by a different actress in each film, the role as coveted by Japanese starlets as Emmanuelle is in France. As such, this changing roster of faces has allowed for a range of interpretations and subtle shading to the part, the most beloved being Miho Kanno and Nozomi Ando.

Tomie: Beginning(2005)

This movie is a prequel to the rest of the series. Tomie (Rio Matsumoto) shows up as a transfer student at a high school. She displays all of her typical powers. In this movie we are introduced to the teacher who promises to kill her no matter how many times he has to do the “favor” as well as the eye-patch-wearing boy of the first movie in the series.
