Tetsuo: The Iron Man
- This event has passed.
In 1989, a film exploded out of Japan and changed the face of both the cyberpunk and body horror genres forever. Shot in black and white on grainy 16mm and on a minuscule budget, Tetsuo: The Iron Man tells the story of a salaryman, cursed by a metal fetishist following a road accident, who begins to find pieces of iron sprouting from his body. Directed by the singular Shinya Tsukamoto, who also stars as the masochistic fetishist, the film spawned two sequels, but the intensity of the original has never been matched. 30 years later, it still packs a ferocious, iron-fisted punch unlike anything else before or since.
