Tetsuo: The Iron Man

Director Tsukamoto's fantastic, futuristic ode to physical mutation is full of such shocking scenes of mutilated body horror as to exceed any 'normal" conception of body transformations we may have and despite its low budget the film looks astonishing; the combination of stop motion photography and grisly make-up is highly effective. DMB

DVD Extras: A trailer for the film and its sequel and a collection of stills is all you get but the film does come with Tetsuo II: Body Hammer in a box set so you can't complain.
