The movie is based on a Japanese horror manga series which was written and illustrated by Junji Ito. In total, there is 8 different Tomie-movies today and you can read my opinion concerning the first ones here:
TOMIE: Replay (2000)
TOMIE: Another face (1999)
Tomie is a girl who can not die. She revives herself from her dead bodyparts and multiplies.
The story starts with three boys: Hideo, Shunsuke and Takumi. Hideo is dating Tomie and paints her portrait, but when she dismisses his artwork as bad, he gets struck by rage and kills her. His friends Shunsuke and Takumi finds him with the bloody girl on the floor and together they head to the woods to bury her.
Later, the boys goes to a party when Tomie suddenly shows up, alive. Hideo goes to the bathroom and commits suicide and Shunsuke becomes the next love victim of Tomie.
Takumi’s girlfriend uses a lipstick that belonged to Tomie, and suddenly she starts to act very strange. Tomie becomes a part of her. It doesn’t matter how many times Tomie gets killed… she always comes back…
