The Japanese HP Lovecraft
Ito's 'Uzumaki' is highly inspired by HP Lovecraft's tale of spirals, as well as the stylistic writing. Never has a book left me highly speechless and frightened to the bone. From novels, films, and graphic novels; this book is truely made of pure terror!
No kidding, and this has put my past favorite stories from authors such as Koji Suzuki, Stephen King, and Steve Niles to shame.
Volume two of the three-book series is in my opinion "THE BEST" of it all. Showing/penning shocking tales from undead jack-in-the-box characters, snail people, and even the heavy hospital chapters that make this book the true horror masterpiece to not be overlooked by real fans of the genre.
A "MUST BUY" if you are looking for that special tale for certain nights with perfect atmosphere at the right times.
