The Japanese film site Cinema Today has posted a trailer for Noboru Iguchi’s upcoming J-horror film, Tomie Unlimited. This marks the eighth film based on Junji Ito’s long-running manga series, and Iguchi has stated that it will be very loyal to the grotesque nature of the source material.
Although the film itself will be rated R-15+ in theaters due to extreme situations—which would seem to back up Iguchi’s assertion—the trailer has been toned down a bit to be safe for younger viewers.
Former gravure idol Miu Nakamura plays Tomie, a seductive schoolgirl who causes men to fall in love with her and go completely insane with jealousy and possessiveness. She has been killed and dismembered several times in the past, but always regenerates from remaining body parts to begin the process all over again.
Moe Arai co-stars as a girl named Tsukiko whose sister has seemingly returned from the dead. The new footage also shows a little bit of AKB48 member Aika Oota. Other listed cast members include Kensuke Owada, Koichi Ohori, and Maiko Kawakami.
“Tomie Unlimited” will be screened at Shinjuku Wald 9 from May 14, 2011.
Update: Nagoya TV Next uploaded a nicer 720p version.
