From Snowblood Apple:
Welcome to the wild, whirling, weird world of Uzumaki, the most psychedelic, berserk, acid-addled, alarming, astounding, hilarious horror film ever. Go buy the DVD, and strap yourselves into your sofas, 'cos it's gonna be a helluva trip…Wikipedia on the original manga:
…when you were little, did you ever spend hours and hours running around in circles trying to make yourself dizzy, and then fall over laughing while the room span around you? Well, Uzumaki makes you feel like that all over again...
From start to finish, Uzumaki is a rollercoaster ride of non-stop schlock-shocks, one of the oddest films I've ever seen, and a complete hoot. Tinted throughout in a bizarre green colour, and featuring little tricksy gimmicks like camera-wipes and tiny digitized spiral shapes that form and deform in strange places throughout (you'll find yourself playing Spot-The-Spiral after a while), it's a joy for the eyes as well as the brain.
