33 pages and I have to manually click "full size" every time?

You ask too much of me at 7:30 in the morning.

I read it, definitely creepy - the guy looked like a girl though.

I'd recommend it, but it all felt a bit abrupt - could have done with more fleshing out maybe?

The pages load really fucking slow. I don't know if I can slog through a comic where it takes 10 seconds for each page to load.

EDIT: Well, I made it through, it was a pretty enjoyable read. I'm wondering what will happen once the deformed people get back out, I would imagine they would all get out at about the same time.

Junji Ito's works always make for a fun read... but I wouldn't really consider them as part of the "horror" genre, they're more like eccentric fairy tales with peculiar imagery.

How about the much shorter The Sad Tale of the Principal Post, which is just ridiculous.

Nah, I disagree. Horror is, at least, something that is in someway horrific or scary for you. Jump out-scares are scary to everyone. But existential, Lovecraftian, messed-up horror is far, far worse for me. Also this is one of the worst ones for me, and I don't even have claustrophobia. In a teen horror movie some dude might jump out and kill me, but that would be a sweet release conpared to anything that happens in Junji's work.

And yeah, this was definitely horror to me. Climbing into a hole, preying on ones possible fear of tight confined spaces and ultimately that fear leads to this twisted outcome.

For some reason the visual of seeing all the holes in the cliff wall grossed me out more than the ending. Other than that, the thing that bothered me most is that they should have starved to death long before then. :lol

Still I liked it, and will look into his other work.

It's not that creepy and it doesn't say why the hole "gapes" at them, even though they haven't committed a crime. Plus, the first time, it wasn't doing that, they were forced in.... It was okay, I suppose but that "Full Size" link was annoying.
