Uzumaki
Uzumaki follows a high-school teenager Kirie Goshima, her boyfriend Shuichi Sato, and the citizens of the small, fictional Japanese town of Kurôzu-cho), which is cursed by supernatural events involving spirals. As the story progresses, Kirie and Shuichi witness how the spiral curse affects the people around them, causing the citizens to become obsessed or paranoid about spirals. 

Why I recommend it:
The plot synopsis does not really do it justice. It is just too much of a mind fuck to even explain. Uzumaki has some of the most crazy concepts and art out of any Manga I've read. It is extremely out there and graphic at points. Although it is not the most story rich manga, it is still cool for a fun and easy read.

Examples of art:
Not really spoilers.

Uzumaki is great, one of the first works that got me interested in Junji Ito.

I'd also like to suggest to anyone who finishes reading this to read The Enigma of Amigara Fault, also by the same person. Not as creepy/strange in my opinion, but definitely enjoyable.

Just finished reading the second chapter, it's really good (albeit a little creepy).
