The Window Next Door by Junji Ito


This is a pretty short manga but one with some really great visuals. A boy is haunted by a freakish looking women who live next door. Her window is directly across from his bedroom window and she beckons him to come visit her. She's hideous and at first, the boy assumes he's had a nightmare, but when it happens the next night, the woman threatens to come visit him in his room straight through the window. The last visual is the best. The window is growing out of the house and slowly making it's way to the boys room. It reminds me of images from Videodrome. hehe. Sigh. I love Chronenburg.
