Christy Tidwell’s “Spiraling Inward and Outward: Junji Ito’s Uzumaki and the Scope of Ecohorror” seeks to extend ecohorror’s range, analyzing the intersections between three interrelated horror subgenres—ecohorror, body horror, and cosmic horror—to highlight the centrality of ecohorror to horror as a whole. Through an analysis of Junji Ito’s Uzumaki, Tidwell argues that ecohorror cannot fully be separated from body horror or cosmic horror and, further, that Uzumaki’s combination of the three indicates the importance of shifting scales: from individual bodies to ecosystems, or from the life-span of a human to the life-span of the planet.
