Tetsuo: The Iron Man is a cyberpunk fantasy of strange encounters, bizarre creatures, and a deadly rivalry. When a man known only as the Metal Fetishist (Shinya Tsukamoto) experiments with inserting metal into his leg, the resulting painful infection drives him screaming into the streets. Soon after, a hapless salaryman (Tomorowo Taguchi) on a drive with his girlfriend (Kei Fujiwara) accidentally hits the frantic Metal Fetishist, he presumes the man dead and attempts to hide the body in a ravine. Later, the salaryman finds himself sprouting metal and slowly transforming into a metallic monster himself. Unable to control the nightmares that ensue, the salaryman begins to suspect that the Metal Fetishist is responsible for the terror he has been enduring and sets out to find him. While the salaryman is desperate to return to his normal life, his monstrous transformations may have too strong of a grip on his own mind to ever stop the horror. Testuo: The Iron Man is a stunning example of surrealistic horror that digs deeply into the dark fantasies of fetishism.moreless
