I – Ibara no Ou (King of Thorns)

The japanese word for thorns is Ibara, and in this case, thorns are a deadly enemy. A story about how humanity deals with a mysterious disease turns into a horrific survival horror, and I was rivetted the entire time. A movie, instead of a series, I personally think this narrative is one of the twisty-turniest I’ve ever seen or read.

go to link Why I recommend it to writers: if you want to write any kind of suspense or horror, Ibara no Ou is a great resource for both. It shows a mastery of psychology that I greatly enjoy.

purchase Neurontin Warnings: Death, Dismemberment, tons of imagery that might be displeasing.
