Literally, this is one of the most fabulous things I have ever encountered in my entire life.  it's so beautiful I can't even deal with it.  If you read it, you definitely won't regret ANYTHING.  I guess you could say it's...TWISTED?!  I did not just do that.

I read reviews about this book. Reviews that said this book is scary. I hoped they were right, so I checked it out at the library. I read it and I wanted to read it again. This is a scary book. This book is the combination of Akira and The Ring. I simply think that this book deserves to be one of the scariest books of all time.

As a graphic novel and american pulp fiction enthusiast, i had no clue what i was getting into when i checked this out from a local library. After having depleted my school library's insufficient supply of comics and graphic novels, I sought more from a local library. Upon finding Volume I of Uzumaki, I was unfamiliar with the term of 'manga' and i actually still am. Junji Ito's ability to tap into phobias engraved into the human psyche (may i point to the centipede in Mrs. Saito's cochlea?)is superb. The strange and unsettling episodes dredge up unrecognized fears that would have otherwise been overlooked. A most primal and disturbing kind of fear. I think this is absolutely excellent. I need to read the other ones.

This manga is a stunning example of the japanese horror genre. It is suspenseful and gets better in the later volumes. If you don't like horror i'd stay away, but if it's your cup of tea, GET IT!!

A masterpiece of dark humor and true horror. The live-action movie version of this series is brilliant, and the books are even better. This is a 'twisted' tale of a Japanese town taken over by an evil force in the shape of a spiral.
