In this final installment of the long-running film series adapted from manga writer Junji Ito's wildly successful comic series, the constantly regenerating titular character returns to terrorize an artistically inclined young girl and her widowed father. Slowly integrating herself into the family as she casts a mysterious spell on the lovelorn father, Tomie (Nozomi Ando) nearly causes the grieving widower to kill his own daughter before he snaps out of the hypnotic spell -- dismembering Tomie and dumping her body into a nearby river. When his daughter discovers the disembodied but still-living head of Tomie, she too falls under the mysterious creature's overpowering spell and begins helping Tomie to regenerate a new body. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

Special Features:

  • "Making Of" featurette

The worst of the bunch by Ayato October 14, 2004 - 7:33 PM PDT

The Tomie series is pretty uneven, and Forbidden Fruit is the worst of the bunch. Nothing much happens. It wasn't scary. It wasn't interesting. Its just a really mediocre movie. Its sad that the series ends with such a bad movie, though you wouldn't even know it was the last one since the plot is pretty much the same as the others. No real closure to the series to be found. My advice is to skip this one and just see the 1st three.
