If you've seen John Carpenter's THE THING, then just imagine that BUT IN A CITY, this manga can get to you if you have a messed up fear about spiders or any ugly four legged bug that you hate, this really is a jaw chopping and hair raising manga that is not for the faint of heart of spider fear, a very weird read, short but horrifying

While I did not enjoy the mainline story as much, this book has one of the creepiest stories I have ever read. "The Enigma of Amigara Fault". Defines horror in my mind.
