Movie: TOMIE: Forbidden fruit
Release date: June 29th 2002
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: Rebirth (2001)
TOMIE: Replay (2000)
TOMIE: Another face (1999)
Tomie is a girl who can not die. She revives herself from her dead body parts and multiplies.
Tomie Hashimoto is a shy girl who gets bullied in school. At home she writes homo-erotic horror fiction and dreams about another life than her own.
One day she meets another girl with the same name as her – Tomie – and she falls in love. What she doesn’t notice is that the other Tomie only uses her to get close to her father, Kazuhiko Hashimoto, who used to have a relationship with the other Tomie many years ago. He has aged but she hasn’t, ’cause Tomie can neither die or age.
One night, the other Tomie tries to convince Kazuhiko to kill his daughter. He realize that she is a monster and kills her instead, cuts her into pieces and throws her body parts in a river. The daughter Tomie will the other day find monster-Tomie’s head at the river bank, talking and seemingly alive, and decides to take care of her until her body is fully grown back…
This movie had some surprise element that I believe the previous Tomie-movies lacked. I think this was a good one and I recommend it!
