I liked this better than the first film in the series but it still feels cheap unfortunately due to the lackluster digital cinematography. I really like how they tried to do more of the Cronenbergesque body horror from the manga but the FX don't quite hold up. I really wish these filmmakers could get a bigger budget, a better camera, etc. I'm still not sure about the actress they cast for Tomie. She is ok I guess but not as amazingly gorgeous as I imagine the character. Sometimes you see a girl in Tokyo that just immediately knocks you out since she is so breathtaking. If only they could cast someone like that. There are definitely girls like that here in Japan but they never put them in Tomie movies unfortunately. But I hope they keep trying. Tomie really deserves an awesome big budget film. It just needs someone that truly gets the material and can pull it off then they need the necessary budget to achieve that. Easier said than done and I worry the financers have lost faith.
