And there are some really unforgetable images throughout. Posted By frawgman on January 2, 2009 @ 2:28 am Log in to Reply ★★★★☆ Uzumaki is a bizarre, creepy, and often whimsical little movie with fantastic imagery. starts off slow but gets crazier and crazier as it goes. I highly recommend it Posted By midnightambulance on January 19, 2009 @ 4:54 am Log in to Reply ★★★★☆ Vague plot with little explanation or resolution… Just a curse of spirals plaguing a town, and the subsequent bizarre results. It’s a strange little movie, which I happen to like a lot, but it’s certainly not for everyone… Posted By Sammi on August 2, 2009 @ 3:01 am Log in to Reply ★★★★☆ Good movie.. I lost my remote & couldn’t get the subtitles on, but I enjoyed it still. Although the manga is MUCH better.

It failed to even remotely touch the complexities of the manga and only grazed 1/3 of the story line. I also know that if I hadn’t read the manga before I would have been totally confused, as they never explained the reason for the spirals. (If you want answers, go to the books, they’re in there.)

In fact it’s mindblowingly bizarre and extremely weird, yet totally adorable. Highly atmospheric and eerie, but also a bit amusing. Crammed with splendid ideas and impressive images; cool-looking settings and brilliant effects. Great score, decent acting, neat dialogue – terrific movie!

Spirals everywhere! Spirals. Spirals. There are spirals. Not quite scary because you always know what’s coming next, and it’s always, you guessed it, spirals. They drive people crazy. The number of spirals in this movie is high. I can’t quite decide if it’s a full-on horror movie or a quirky fantasy. “There’s a spiral in your ear! Stab it!” Certainly some cool visuals, but not very compelling or cohesive.
