To tell the truth, I didn't feel fear to "Tomie", it was well done though. But "Tomie Replay" is a genuine magnificent scary horror!
Dr. Morita (Sugata Shun) examines a little girl named Sayuri. She has been undergone the operation for organ transplantation before, and transplanted organ gets hypertrophy. Dr. Morita tries to operate her for amputation an affected part. But He is astonished that there is a woman head in her body and it is alive! Dr. Morita knows that a girl named Tomie has offered her organ to Sayuri. Tomie can regenerate herself from some part of her body! During the operation, Dr. Morita cut his finger by mistake and Tomie's blood go into his body. Dr. Morita run mad and disappear.
The director Mr. Mitsuishi Fujirou has directed many video movies before. Though I watched some of these and I judged his ability was average irresponsibly, Now I am ashamed of myself. I reconsider HE IS GREAT after I watch "Tomie Replay". Especialy the direction about madness of Dr. Morita or Sayuri or Takeshi is so skilful!! Of course, so scary either!! Mr. Mitsuishi is remarkable in japanese horror movie after this, I think strongly.
