After he has been run over by a car, a man (Tomorowo Taguchi) feels a bit weird, mentally but above all else physically - because it seems he starts to grow metal parts. Then on day he is attacked by a woman (Nobu Kanaoka) who seems to grow metal parts as well, and for some reason attacks him, rather out of the blue. The man can only just escape his attacker.

Back at home the situation gets worse and worse, especially when he grows a giant drill where once his dick was. When he later makes love to his girlfriend (Kei Fujiwara), she doesn't survive.

Eventually, the man finds out a few things about how he became what he is: He was run over by a scientist (Renji Ishibashi), who is obviously responsible for his mutation - and who had an affair with his girlfriend ... but that's all in the past, because in the present, the man is attacked by a metal freak (Shinya Tsukamoto) who for some reason or other shares his fate. The two of them engage in mortal combat, but during the fight they somehow fuse into one being, a giant human-robot hybrid with two heads that now prepares to take over the world ... and who is going to stop it ?

 

Whatever you've seen so far, Tetsuo: The Iron Man is something quite different: A blend of trashmovie and arthouse flick, a mix of bizarre filmmaking à la early David Lynch, David Cronenberg's flesh horror, sci-fi-manga mainstays and elements of bottom-of-the-barrell monster movies and gore flicks, all mixed together by a fetishistic direction that relies heavily on hand-held camera and crude special effects ... and the result is nothing short of wonderful, a film that hasn't lost any of its appeal and freshness even 18 years after it was first shown.

Recommended.
