Tetsuo: The Iron Man

Sunday November 11th at 7:00pm

 

Tickets: $5

Made by Shinya Tsukamoto in 1989, this shocking avant-garde body horror about a man who turns into a metal mutant is among the key films of Japanese cyberpunk.

A man tries to implant a metal rod into his leg, but sees maggots in the wound. Panic-stricken, he dashes across the road, but gets hit by a car. The driver catches ‘the metal disease’ and grows a metal spike on his face. Anyone who comes across those infected undergoes a mutation that turns their bodies into writhing mess of flesh and metal.
