Genres: horror, supernatural
Plot Summary: Museum Of Terror collects together a host of Junji Ito's short horror stories originally published between 1987 and 2000. The first two volumes contain thematically linked but self-contained stories dealing with Tomie - a beautiful young woman with the power to seduce and dominate any male, from small boys to elderly men. Tomie's problem is that the men obsessed with her inevitably end up wanting to kill her in order to free themselves from their obsession and from her disturbing commands. Tomie, however, refuses to stay dead and chopping her into pieces just results in multiple Tomies that don't always get along with one another... The third volume leaves the Tomie character behind and consists of stand-alone gothic horror pieces.
