Uzumaki (うずまき, “Spiral”) is a 2000 Japanese horror feature film directed by Higuchinsky based on Junji Ito’s episodic manga of the same name.
The plot concerns a town plagued with malevolent spirals. This abstract concept manifests in grotesque ways, such as a teenager’s long hair beginning to curl and take over her mind, or a corpse wound around itself.
” …Uzumaki delivers plenty of chilling moments and creepy imagery, while also keeping a sense of humor. Despite the film’s obvious financial limitations, director Higuchinsky gets the most out of budget visual effects and a unique editing style that makes Uzumaki an engaging watch.” Horror.com
