Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
In this final installment of the long-running film series adapted from manga writer Junji Ito's wildly successful comic series, the constantly regenerating titular character returns to terrorize an artistically inclined young girl and her widowed father. Slowly integrating herself into the family as she casts a mysterious spell on the lovelorn father, Tomie (Nozomi Ando) nearly causes the grieving widower to kill his own daughter before he snaps out of the hypnotic spell -- dismembering Tomie and dumping her body into a nearby river. When his daughter discovers the disembodied but still-living head of Tomie, she too falls under the mysterious creature's overpowering spell and begins helping Tomie to regenerate a new body.
