Review: Uzumaki by Junji Ito (Spoiler-Free)
Is it still cannibalism if they became a snail first? Asking for a friend.
This was my first work by Junji Ito and I'm happy to report that I enjoyed its whirlwind of a ride. I really liked its episodic entries, though I do think that the second half started to get a little repetitive. That being said, the ending was perfect.
I'd pitch this as The Twilight Zone meets House of Leaves. It begins as vignettes of the horrific events that occur in the town Kurouzu-cho and builds into a labyrinthine nightmare.
I'm never going to look at a spiral the same way again.
