Kurozu-cho, a small fogbound town on the coast of Japan, is cursed. According to Shuichi Saito, the withdrawn boyfriend of teenager Kirie Goshima, their town is haunted not by a person or being but by a pattern: uzumaki, the spiral, the hypnotic secret shape of the world. It manifests itself in everything from seashells and whirlpools in water to the spiral marks on people's bodies, the insane obsessions of Shuichi's father and the voice from the cochlea in our inner ear. As the madness spreads, the inhabitants of Kurozu-cho are pulled ever deeper into a whirlpool from which there is no return!

This book is a bunch of short stories with horror at its core, junji ito has a interesting way with suspence leaving the shock points on the next page, and we as the reader are left with just the reactions of the charaters until we turn that page to reveal true horror. - Kai (QBD)
I loved this book. It's entrancing and beautiful.
Manga masterpiece from Junji Ito; this all in one edition is the perfect book for fans of surreal art and gripping mystery. Spin out along the spiral as the town of Kurozu-Cho is enveloped in a chaotic occurance. Inspired by horror fiction authors such as HP. Lovecraft, Uzumaki is a must own for fans of surreal horror and manga collectors! - Nathan (QBD)
