Junji Ito's manga series "Uzumaki" began being published in 1998 and finished it's run the following year. However it was so popular it was quickly made into a motion picture in 2000. The story concerns a town that is cursed by spirals. People start seeing spirals, things start taking the shapes of spirals, PEOPLE start taking the shapes of spirals. It's an odd story, but one that had a tremendous impact on me when I saw the movie. Of all the Japanese horror movies to be released in the wake of The Ring, I've always thought that this one was far and away the best so it's somewhat bittersweet for me that it's been somewhat overlooked. It's bitter since I think the film deserves more attention, yet sweet since I'm glad it hasn't been remade.
