Acontecimentos grotescos começam a surgir em Kurôzu, a pequena localidade onde Kirie Goshima nasceu e cresceu. O vento sopra em curvas, folhas e ramos se enrolam e a fumaça expelida do crematório sobe desenhando redemoinhos funestos. Logo os humanos também são afetados pelo fenômeno helicoidal. Cabelos se revolvem em círculos e corpos se retorcem... Kirie tenta escapar da cidade para fugir da maldição da espiral...

Este clássico mangá de terror, que profetizou o clima claustrofóbico e a desigualdade da atual sociedade japonesa, é uma das principais obras do mestre do horror, Junji Ito.

Review of Uzumaki

5 stars

What could I possibly say about Junji Ito’s works that have not already been said? He is a master at taking bizarre or mundane ideas and turning them into a creeping horror with his fantastic art style. This collection of stories about this doomed town and the people who live in it initially feels disconnected and disparate, but ultimately built up into a suitably Lovecraftian conclusion. If you are interested in horror manga and have not yet tried out this book, do yourself a favor and check it out.

excellent. disturbing

first off I'd strongly advise against reading this (or any of Junji Ito's works, probably) if body horror is a big problem for you. that said, Uzumaki is really good! the art is amazingly done, and the slow escalation from relatively self-contained (and occasionally kind of silly) spiral-based phenomena to... the stuff that happens at the end... is just fantastic.
