The Scruffy Professor
Tomie Forbidden Fruit... Bad. I recently got the whole Tomie movie collection minus Tomie VS Tomie and Tomie Unlimited. So far they have all completely missed the point of the original story. the first film, Tomie (1999) is so far the best but that's not really saying much. It's slow and the payoff is sort of average. Tomie Forbidden Fruit started out pretty strong, the main character, another girl named Tomie, is introduced to the wicked Tomie and there's an interesting dynamic between the two. Unfortunately the movie doesn't really follow through with this and shifts focus to the father character who knew the wicked Tomie as a teenager. The movie feels like it should have ended at the half way point but it just keeps going and the more it goes on the worse it gets. I will be moving on to Tomie: Beginning but do not have high hopes.
