Tetsuo: The Iron Man/Body Hammer

Shinya Tsukamoto's cyberpunk double bill

Cult auteur Shinya Tsukamoto's fevered cyberpunk fantasy Tetsuo: The Iron Man has lost none of its satirical bite or shock value.

A cauldron of surrealist expressionism and body horror, it’s the story of a salaryman who, after disposing of the body of a crazed metal fetishist following a hit and run, begins sprouting scrap, wires and circuits.

Essentially a bigger-budgeted colour do-over, sequel Body Hammer offers a slightly more comprehensible storyline but is just as audaciously bonkers as its predecessor.
