A new Japanese movie based on a comic book going by the same name. "Uzumaki" means spiral in japanese, and the movie is true to the core concept -- a quiet town is under the influence of an old snake cult curse. Strange and gruesome deaths plague the town with only the pattern of a spiral linking them all together. The movie keeps an entrancingly slow pace, as the town spirals steadily into oblivion. The movie features exquisite special effects that are used to create especially disturbing and gruesome images, which stick to your mind long after you're done watching it.

This movie may be the first movie ever that truly deserves to be defined as an anime film.
